Old Bull comes out of the hills of Southern California and consists of Eric Rasmussen (vocals/harmonica), Dylan Wilkerson (guitar/banjo), Scott Grusin (lap steel/guitar/dobro/mandolin), Steve Seifert (bass) and Peter Sheffer (drums). They have labeled their own sound as “Southern California Slamgrass”. To be honest, I have no clue what that even means and if I were to need to describe their sound for something like…say; a website…I’d probably say something like they sound like a younger Drive-By Trucker’s with pot references instead of Alabama folklore references.
Old Bull’s debut cd, Manifesto, is now out on Big Bender Records and if the thought of California-infused Southern Rock sounds like something you would enjoy, check it out. It’s a pretty fun listen.
