James Jackson Toth
Summary: For his solo debut (out July 29, 2008), Tennessee-based James Jackson Toth has conjured a mysterious, alluring world peopled by characters that could have been pulled from the pages of a Faulkner novel or from one of photographer William Eggleston’s stark portraits of Memphis barflies. Toth’s scenarios are intriguingly tawdry, his sounds tantalizing, with layered, almost-dreamlike harmonies, touches of blues, country and soul, the occasional flash of punk swagger, and even some sweet Fleetwood Mac-inspired pop.
