Rod Picott has been called “Mesmerising” by Rolling Stone magazine, and according to Houston Chronicle his songs are “Like Raymond Carver short stories.”
His eye for revealing detail and his sense of empathy has brought praise from music critics since his debut and those qualities, as well as a potent defiance is on full display across his latest release, Out Past The Wires. Now 52 years old and nine albums into his music career Picott is more prolific than ever. Why he isn’t better known bewilders both fans and pundits but they are united in their belief what he is one of the most important figures in contemporary American music.
