Jake Xerxes Fussell & Nathan Bowles with House and Land and Trio Huracan Hidalguense. As a teenager, Durham, NC singer and guitarist Jake Xerxes Fussell began playing and studying with elder musicians in the Chattahoochee Valley, apprenticing with Piedmont blues legend Precious Bryant (“Georgia Buck”) and riding wild with Alabama bluesman, black rodeo rider, rye whiskey distiller, and master dowser George Daniel (“Rabbit on a Log”). Fussell’s self-titled debut record, produced by and featuring William Tyler, transmutes ten arcane folk and blues tunes into vibey cosmic laments and crooked riverine rambles.
