Willie Nile - American Ride
Posted on 07/22/2013 in misc
Not many people peak after age 50. Willie Nile seems to be one of those people. His new record American Ride continues the remarkable run he has been on in this millennium. IMO, he is maybe the most under appreciated musical artist in the US today. Bruce Springsteen is a huge fan, yet 99% of the people that own a Bruce record have never heard of him. Hell, Willie Nile has been doing Bruce better than Bruce does Bruce for most of the last 15 years.
The new record, American Ride, continues that streak. It's a classic Willie record, with a couple of odes to New York, a piano ballad, a touch of rockabilly, and a lot of honest, straight from the gut American Rock N Roll. > Buy it, I guarantee you'll like it.
