Song of the Day #69 – Jakob Dylan

Of all the videos I’ve posted, this is my new favorite. Like his father, Jakob Dylan has a knack for crafting lyrical, compelling songs. This video is from NPR’s excellent “Tiny Desk Concert” series and, though it’s a bit longer than most of my other videos, it’s well worth your time. The three songs performed are Nothing But The Whole Wide World, Everybody’s Hurtin’, and Holy Rollers For Love (all from Jakob’s latest CD Women And Country). The combination of Dylan’s voice, sweet melodies, electric and acoustic guitars, and rich harmonies by Neko Case and Kelly Hogan creates a symphony of sound that is beautiful, soothing and uplifting. This mini-concert will elevate your day – I guarantee it.
