JD McPherson | Signs & Signifiers

Oklahoma born vocalist and guitarist JD McPherson gets deep inside the music on his debut album Signs & Signifiers. R&B, Blues, Rockabilly and Hip-hop have influenced his sound and he goes way beyond a mere retro trip back through these styles. He cuts a new path with his sharp eye and ear. Recorded in the Chicago attic studio of producer/bassist Jimmy Sutton, it's "100% analog". Alex Hall is on drums, piano and organ. You'll get the idea with these videos. Great groove, honest(leads)to goodness.
