HANDS OF THE WICKED

"A country folk troubadour in the early Dylan/Woody Guthrie tradition..."
Sparse instrumentation stacked like bones inside a rich body of lyrics create this 9 song essay on man's dark search for redemption from the belly of his own hell; deeply personal and hauntingly universal.

Hands Of The Wicked

"Prophet On The Barstool"

Michael C Smith

In cart Not available Out of stock

"Prophet On The Barstool" begins with a foot-stomping ramble of political and social unrest with it's lead track "90 & 9" and ends with a prayer screamed from the deepest depths of despair with album closer "Laid to Rest". The 8 tracks in between range from love songs to confessionals, each one uniquely individual yet, hauntingly universal. It's an album designed to be heard from start to finish. An album that invites its listener to journey, to participate, to love, to fight and when finished; to reflect & repeat. A beautifully constructed slice of Americana, Roots and acoustic rock.
