ALBUM REVIEW: Cody Jinks – I’m Not The Devil

500x500

ptw scorebw7Cody Jinks is the latest outlaw-country artist to emerge from the road-worn bar scene of the US start making waves to a wider audience. Possessing a rich country baritone in the style of Johnny Cash, Waylon Jennings and Merle Haggard (he covers Haggard’s ‘The Way I Am’), he could be viewed as the flip-side to the more progressive Sturgill Simpson – similar in voice but firmly in the traditional country realm of heartache and redemption. Jinks has a tough exterior but he invests a fair amount of vulnerability and emotional weight. There are cliches are aplenty on show here but for the most part Jinks convinces as a genuine country talent.
