MidPointMusic: great presentation with @topicdesign at the AMA luncheon Friday. enjoyed the folks we met and learned much!
There are songwriters who come and go without ever really impacting our lives, and then there are songwriters whose words seem to bore straight into our souls, and never let go. Their songs bother us. They simply can’t go in one ear, and out the other. Rather, they have to be processed, slept on and digested. They are the kind of songs that tug at our hearts, and challenge our minds. The Texas-born story-teller, Jarrod Dickenson is most definitely in the latter category. He will take you back in time to the days of The Great Depression and World War II with captivating stories of old. He’ll make you reflect on your own life with heartfelt songs of love lost, and he’ll remind you that somewhere in the midst of all the chaos there is still the hope of a brighter tomorrow. His songs have the unique ability of making you see what he is seeing, and feel what he is feeling. Jarrod's thoughtful lyrics combined with the raw emotion in his voice make the listener immediately aware that he is not simply a fine story-teller, but also someone who has truly experienced that which he so powerfully sings of.
Now based in Nashville, TN, Jarrod spends most of his time on the road touring throughout the country, and is quickly, and not-so-quietly taking the folk music world by storm.
