"It really feels like I'm taking a big step forward on this one," Pokey LaFarge says of Something in the Water, his seventh album and his Rounder debut. "While we were recording it, I kept thinking, 'Hey, we're really onto something here.'" 

Indeed, the dozen-song set marks a new landmark in a career that's already filled with musical highlights. The St. Louis-based singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist draws from a deep well of American musical traditions to create distinctively personal music that's timeless rather than retro, transcending the confines of genre in a manner that reflects the artist's openhearted attitude. 

Incorporating elements of early jazz, ragtime, country blues, Western swing, and beyond, LaFarge has created a vibrant, deeply expressive body of work that embodies an expansive musical vision and vivid storytelling sensibility that are wholly his own. He's also earned a reputation as a tireless, uniquely charismatic live performer, winning a loyal international fan base that regularly packs his rousing, celebratory live shows.      ....read more www.shankhall.com
