Rayland Baxter’s ‘The Mtn Song’ [Fresh Vid]

Posted By on Fri, Aug 31, 2012 at 3:14 PM

If you peeped Scene contributor Jewly Hight’s Q&A with Rayland Baxter the Cream posted Monday, you learned that — in addition to being a former jock, an admitted former Everclear fan and the son of famed Steve Earle/Dylan sideman Bucky Baxter — the lanky local troubadour is a diligent songwriter and a detail-oriented arranger with a penchant for whistling. Baxter takes inspiration from a palate of influences spanning the Polyphonic Spree to Townes Van Zandt (and not Lynyrd Skynyrd’s Ronnie Van Zandt). See if you can pick up on that in the above clip of the singer-songwriter pensively performing his tender “The Mtn Song” in his backyard.

Baxter’s full-length debut, Feathers & Fishooks, dropped Tuesday on ATO Records. Check out the record's teaser trailer after the jump.
