NEW MUSIC: Drayton Farley – American Dream

Drayton Farley (Woodstock, Alabama) is a new name to us but his voice caught our ear right off the bat. The lyrics fell into place pretty immediately too. Never over-forced, he balances the poetry and direct political commentary with a tasteful touch of melancholic country.

The song definitely calls into the same camp as the likes of Isbell and Childers, both in terms of style and quality.

It’s a hard up kind of life 
Begging the ashtray for nickels and dimes 
Writing these songs trying to wrap my mind 
around a bullshit American Dream

Farley looks to have released a couple of EPs and singles over the last year or two. Check them out here on Bandcamp.
