Hailing from the Wisconsin Northwoods, JJ Schultz captures the lonesome middle-America landscape with the wry clarity of Nebraska era Springsteen. Schultz's wavering vibrato captures the snap shots of everyday people surviving the life of rural America. The dusty barrooms, the front porch steps and farmer's fields are images delivered with a subtle passion that's balanced between sparse guitar picking and a poignant vocal delivery that is as distinctive as Jay Farrar and Townes Van Zandt. This third solo release captures a peak career performance that most artists try to capture through years of collaborations and hardships. 'Our man demonstrates what Americana should sound like... Schultz proves he should be ranked among today's greatest songwriters.'- MazzMuzikaS Mastered by Michael Romanowski (Pete Ham/Badfinger, Ray's Vast basement) and this album including an array of the finest alt-country musicians from the bay area.
