Jake Xerxes Fussell recontextualizes the folk canon for the modern day. The singer and guitarist has become one of his generation’s foremost interpreters of folk and blues from the American South, imbuing the tracks with an emotive warmth and radiant charm.
Fussell’s latest album ‘Good and Green Again’ continues to delve into the folk legacy, this time fuelled by tales of loss and redemption. And it’s Fussell’s striking narrative prowess, coupled with his instrumental dexterity, that vividly transforms the songs and makes for a captivating live performance.

“Fussell is the rare contemporary to approach folk in its pure form, shunning self-penned compositions about bummer relationships to concentrate on material handed down from bygone, hardened times.”
