He’s an odd character, Dan Reeder. Born in Louisiana in 1954 and raised in California, he moved to Germany in the early 1980s. Reeder is an artist through and through; he draws, paints and makes his own instruments which he then uses to compose folk songs that are unassuming but possess a certain charm that is often lacking in much of today’s music. Signed with John Prine’s label Oh Boy Records, the two musicians became friends and toured together several times before Prine passed away in April 2020. Like Reeder’s previous albums, the cover of this new album features his own drawings and is made up of 20 tracks, a bit like a set of Post-it notes stuck on a battered old fridge. The music is peaceful with a capital P, a sweet melancholy mixed with humour and nods, particularly on Young at Heart, when Reeder blows us away with his debonair voice singing “Sex is complicated, and so is democracy”. In these anxious and often stressful times, Dan Reeder’s folk ballads have arrived at the opportune moment. © Yan Ceh/Qobuz

Not just anyone can sign onto John Prine’s record label, especially considering that Oh Boy Records hasn’t welcomed a new artist in 15 years! And if Kelsey Waldon was good enough for Prine himself to have signed her, then that’s even more of an incentive to listen to her music. “It’s hard for me to put into words what it truly means to be signed to Oh Boy Records. To have someone like John, who I have looked up to my whole life, who I have set my songwriting standards after and my general music making standards after, to have someone like him endorse my music and care enough about it to make sure it reaches a wider audience…that means everything”. The singer in her thirties is from Monkey’s Eyebrow (a rural community in Ballard county, Kentucky) but has now settled in Nashville. When whe was younger she listened to Patty Loveless, Keith Whitley, Ricky Skaggs, Loretta Lynn and Patsy Cline, before moving on to Dylan (The Freewheelin’ Bob Dylan is her favourite), as well as Tom Petty and Neil Young. Bluegrass came next, followed by classic rock by Pink Floyd, The Band and Led Zeppelin. Then along came soul and rhythm ‘n’ blues with The Meters, Ann Peebles and Bill Withers. When it comes to her own music, Kelsey Waldon is fast becoming the contemporary queen of traditional country music with her superb voice that exudes the ‘60s and her fabulous storytelling. There really is nothing missing from this album: there is a banjo dotted here and there, an abundance of pedal steel guitar, a Telecaster and even chants from the Chickasaw tribe. There are stories of heartbreak, addiction, distant memories and the great outdoors in an album that still manages to stay current even though it is rooted in tradition. An absolute delight for lovers of real country music. © Marc Zisman/Qobuz
