Product Notes

"Prodigal Son Blues," the debut album from Jeff Evans is a collection of worldly, intelligent songs influenced by a love of both literature and American roots music. The Bible, Middle English lyric poetry, Sir Phillip Sidney, T. S. Eliot, Walker Percy, Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, and Willie Nelson are all invoked in an attempt to answer the age old question of how to reconcile the raucousness of Saturday night with the devotion of Sunday morning. In other words, how is it possible to live in two worlds simultaneously? The musical style also reflects this conflict, drawing inspiration from blues, gospel, old time, honky tonk, rockabilly, and even modern alternative country, yet the final product, though, perhaps, not seamless, does attain a unified artistic vision. It is more quilt than blanket, but comfortable and familiar, nonetheless. "Prodigal Son Blues" is an album in search of a cult following.
