Storytelling is something of a Texas tradition. Tall hats and even taller tales are woven into the fabric of The Lone Star State, and singer-songwriter, Jarrod Dickenson can spin a yarn with the best of them.
Hailing from Waco, now based in Nashville via Brooklyn, Dickenson spends most of his time on the road bringing his own particular brand of soulful Americana to a wide variety of music loving audiences around the globe.
Jarrod’s critically acclaimed album ‘The Lonesome Traveler’ and his subsequent EP ‘Songs From Willow St’ paved the way for him to tour the UK, Ireland and Europe extensively over the last several years. Breakout performances at Glastonbury, Black Deer Fest and Larmer Tree Festival, along with recent tours supporting legendary artists such as Bonnie Raitt, Don McLean and The Waterboys have earned Jarrod a formidable and loyal fan base across the globe, including BBC radio hosts Dermot O’Leary, Cerys Matthews, Huey Morgan, Janice Long, Robert Elms and Alex Lester.
Jarrod’s next album, ‘Ready The Horses’, which received a major label release in the UK was another step forward for the artist. Where ‘The Lonesome Traveler’ was rich with folksy storytelling and largely acoustic instrumentation, ‘Ready The Horses’ dives head-first into the whiskey-soaked worlds of soul and junkyard blues. It’s louder, electrified and at times, even menacing. ‘Ready The Horses’ has a sense of urgency and potency that grips the listener from the get-go, straps them in and takes them on a journey.
