Original Ike Picket
Ike Picket is a unique alternative country stylist with his own brand of guitar sound. He plays only ultralight strings and uses thin picks to get his desired quality and mellow effects to support his heartfelt harmonica, lyrics and stories. Ike cannot be compared to any specific artist. However, if you take Willie Nelson, Waylon Jennings, Bob Dylan, Don Edwards, Kenny Rogers and Jerry Jeff Walker, mix them up in a bag with a couple of the best cowboy poets and dump them out one rendition at a time, you would be pretty close. Ike especially appeals to the WWII baby boomer generation but if you like alternative country blues ballads with life and death lyrics, don't miss this stuff, it is guaranteed to move you.
