I’m a sucker for slide guitar players as well as the sound of a steel guitar being played. Combine the two of them and I’m a happy music lover. Lincoln Durham makes me very happy.
I first heard his music on a Pandora Blues / Americana mix I made. His voice and playing immediately caught my ear and made me take notice. I picked up his four track EP and it has been a constant presence on my iPod ever since I bought it. Recently he has released a full length album “The Shovel vs. The Howling Bones” and I’ve been playing the hell out of it.
My favorite track so far is “Love Letters”, the guitar riff is mesmerizing. This version is acoustic compared to the version on the album:
If you enjoy the blues at all, I highly recommend you pick up his album.
He is based out of Austin and I can’t wait for him to tour the Pacific Northwest so I can see him live.
