King Dude: Jesus in the Courtyard Sep 14, 2012

This is not your grandfathers country music and yet it is. I’ve been a fan of King Dude for some time now. In fact, I was at TJ’s first solo show on the east coast and have enjoyed watching him go from diving head-first into Neofolk to slowly morphing into a giant slice of Americana. When King Dude first started, it was a solo act. Shows were dimly-lit as TJ sat on a chair strumming his guitar. In recent months, King Dude has become a band, complete with a new sound and energy. The guys stayed at my house during Chaos in Tejas and I caught their show at the Parish. It was an entirely different experience.

Their new album, Burning Daylight is out October 16th on Dais Records and here’s a single from it, entitled “Jesus in the Courtyard”. You can pre-order the album now at Dais, so get on that.

If you dig this, head over to the King Dude Bandcamp and check out more.
