Jimbo Mathus And The Tri-State Coalition White Buffalo on LP + MP3 Download
In his native Mississippi and throughout the South, Jimbo Mathus is recognized as the prolific songwriter of born-in-the-bone American music, the torchbearer for Deep South mythology and culture. The lifelong musician, co-founder of the hyper ragtime outfit Squirrel Nut Zippers, has signed to Oxford, MS label Fat Possum Records and will release White Buffalo, produced by Eric "Roscoe" Ambel.
Opening with the mandolin-driven Southern Gothic fable "In The Garden," Mathus and his band, the Tri-State Coalition, deliver an emotional honest batch of songs that embrace the richness of American Music - gospel, country blues and folk. Mathus' "tri-state" band, a handpicked group of like-minded players who make up his formidable live band, includes Matt Pierce (Arkansas), Terrence Bishop (Tennessee), and fellow Mississippians Eric Carlton and Ryan Rogers.
"Some people think I play blues because of my work with Buddy Guy. Some people think I play vaudeville because of my time with Squirrel Nut Zippers." Jimbo says. “Some people think I play ‘You Are My Sunshine’ for tips because they see me play it at a catfish house. Most people have no idea what I really do. Mostly I play what I want and right now I play with Tri–State Coalition; Matt pierce from Arkansas, Terrence Bishop from Tennessee, Eric Carlton and Ryan Rogers from Mississippi. Together we made the White Buffalo."
