Tupelo Honey Playlist 12/11/12

Jesse Baylin has always been one of those performers trying to be pop stars. She's got all the elements to fit in wonderfully in the Americana genre but her sound always veers too pop for most twang DJ's to tolerate.

I can't imagine why she would want to make tons of money and be admired by people when she could opt for drink tickets and $22 in door receipts.

I prematurely typecast her newest release Little Spark as a pure pop album. But after a few more spins the tune "Yuma" struck me as potentially one of the best Americana songs of 2012. Give it a listen, its a hard tune not to like.
