Jay Farrar is an influential observer of the American landscape. With two-decades of touring and traveling as the leader of Son Volt, Farrar has sharpened his gift for capturing the sights and sounds of his American journey – a gift which is instilled on Son Volt’s sixth studio album: Honky Tonk
. It’s the band’s first release in over four years. This captivating album reimagines the classic honky tonk sound of Bakersfield with themes about heartache, optimism and perseverance. Pedal steel guitar and twin fiddle anchor this timeless sound and make Honky Tonk
another landmark recording.
