Ninjas, it’s time to rally your dojo and come together for a very deserving cause. In August of 2016, Southern Louisiana received more than 6 trillion gallons of rainwater in less than one week. Considered a 500-year flood event, it is the largest natural disaster in the US since Superstorm Sandy. More than 100,000 homes have been destroyed, 13 are dead, and hundreds of thousands are impacted across 12 parishes in the region. Within days of flood waters rising, various artists, festival organizers, and music industry executives joined forces to organize music and concert experiences to raise awareness and deliver relief to this urgent cause.

[Folk] Henry Jamison – Real Peach

Real Peach

Burlington-based Henry Jamison has us really tied up. At times, he calls on associations of classic storytellers like Bob Dylan or Johnny Cash. Other times, he reminds us of endearing country songs that blare out of rickety bar speakers at any number of dusty dive bars across the contiguous United States. Regardless of what box we try to put him in, we know one thing for certain. There have been tens of thousands of people with great voices behind an acoustic guitar, a few plucks from a banjo, and a soft kick drum. Not all of them can keep your attention past a few minutes. But, Henry? He’ll stay with you long after this song ends.

“Real Peach” has a warm, comfortable feeling. Lyrically, it’s a song that you can’t help but give in to, even if you’re not the “sing-along” type. We most certainly are, so we quickly found ourselves murmuring the chorus through a beaming grin.

Cuz my baby she’s a real peach
even when the night come crashin’ down
real peach
and the nighttime rolls away, alright
and we’re comin’ back to the demon-killing work of love
(my god)

With only a handful of followers, you’re one of the first to get acquainted with this budding, young artist. Make sure to keep tabs on him by following him on Facebook.
