Paul Pigat : Boxcar Campfire

Best known as his alter ego, inbred rockabilly hero Cousin Harley, Paul Pigat is actually a man with a plethora of songs spanning nearly every musical genre. On Boxcar Campfire, Pigat reaches down into his country soul to deliver an album of familiar, traditional country tales, told in his unique 21st century voice.

From the outset, this disc pays homage to the rocker in Pigat, calling to mind the Grateful Dead’s psychedelic country and western side with an intriguing take on Big Sugar’s “All Over Now.” Later, Pigat turns traditional country on tracks “Corn Liquor” and “Sweet Tooth.” The highlight of Boxcar Campfire is the dobro-charged “Troubled Mind,” beautiful track that will sound just as timeless years from now.

Boxcar Campfire is out now on Little Pig Records.
