Jasper Smitty is a soul born out of heartache with nothing but a guitar in one hand and a bottle of rye whiskey in the other. Hailing from New Orleans, his howl and greasy guitar pay homage to the storytelling of James Taylor and the hauntings of southern greats such as the Allman Brothers and Derek Trucks. Imagine yourself deep in the swamps of Louisiana, the sun slowly fading below the cypress trees and you hear a groove so greasy you can’t help but turn your nose to the south and find an old shack swaying back and forth along the river. There’s a lonely guitar weeping over a whisky soaked moan that draws you in and you don’t know whether to laugh or cry, stand up or sit down, shut up or scream. That’s Jasper Smitty pouring out his soul with a passion to burn your sorrows away one guitar string at a time.
