When one of the greatest songwriters of all time, Dwight Yoakam, decides to record music that you've written, ya sorta might know a thing or two about song and verse. Growing up in California and checking out blues and rockabilly shows with his brother, Dave Alvin has been playing and releasing roots rock-inspired music since the late 1970s. After stints in several bands through his career the “King of California” would eventually discover solo success as a strong Americana-folk singer-songwriter. Spanning multiple genres and releasing several books of poetry over the years Alvin remains an important and fascinating tone in the story of American music.
