Release Date:02/16/2018;Notes:Vinyl LP pressing. A sense of place has long permeated the music of J.D. Wilkes. He's a native of Paducah, KY, a city located at the confluence of various rivers and cultures - an area where musical variety is in the air and in the blood memory of it's people. "Of course, there's bluegrass and hillbilly songs, but also blues, jazz, old time fiddle music, jug band music, even swamp rock," says Wilkes. "It's a great intersection there. I think I epitomize that in the way that I write and perform." Wilkes' solo debut, Fire Dream, represents the apotheoses of that vision: a hillbilly-gypsy epic, it's an album of art damaged cabaret music, leavened by Latin rhythms and high lonesome hollers. Call it boho bluegrass - maybe what Tom Waits would sound like if he were a Kentucky Colonel (a title that Wilkes happens to hold).
