JD McPherson "Signs and Signifiers"

From Broken Arrow, Oklahoma comes JD McPherson, an artist with an unaffected take on vital American music and a voice that channels the spirit of Little Richard and James Brown.

McPherson's seductively kickass debut album, Signs & Signifiers, finds this renaissance man/hepcat seamlessly meshing the old and the new, the primal and the sophisticated, on a work that will satisfy traditional American rock 'n roll and R&B purists while also exhibiting McPherson's rarefied gift for mixing and matching disparate stylistic shapes and textures.

Recorded on analog equipment through vintage microphones and a 1960s Berlant 1/4 inch tape machine, Signs & Signifiers marks the arrival of an authentic, gutsy true American artist.
