This singer-songwriter based in Nashville has a grit and maturity that feels beyond his years. Jefferson Grizzard has got the storytelling of Dylan and that throaty growl of a voice like Waits, and he wears it well. Grizzard drives a hard rock sound whether solo on his acoustic guitar or with a full band behind him. "A Crack in the Door," his freshman release, garnered him some early attention. His most recent, "Learning How To Lie," is honest, a bit dark, and plants him as a young fire among modern classic-style rock.
