NPR’s Songs We Love has premiered ALT’s insightful take on the state of Americana music with his thoughtfully crafted tune E.N.S.A.A.T. (East Nashville Song About A Train). Ann goes on saying “Tasjan croons in his broken tenor, over a slowly steamrolling guitar line. That’s some eternal truth to drop on a changing Nashville landscape.” Read it all about it and take a close listen by clicking HERE.

Glide Magazine premiers $66 Blues off of ALT’s debut full length album In The Blazes. “It calls down the quiet thunder of Kristofferson & Prine, with lyrics that’ll snap you out of the deepest trance and make you listen up. There’s fanboat bayou swamp-soul boogie, Fillmore West buzzing-bee Quicksilver guitar mayhem, sweltering latenight R&B shuffles, twangadelic California country, and plenty of good old chiming American rock & roll.” To read more click HERE.

It’s hard out there…
I know this white guy who talks like a black guy
I know this jazz lady who used to be a jazz dude!
Mr. Nicole they called him
Badass…blowin’ baritone sax like a hurricane…or hisicane…
After all, this is America.
Home of the free, land of the brave.
Tell me what’s more free or brave than wearing lady clothes
When you’re a man?
It takes more bravery to do that
Than to hate someone for how they look.
So let me buy you a drink at my bar…
Which I have set
Just high enough to let everyone in.
Don’t know who made this picture…it rules though. Old school GI Joe rules.
