Sun Dec 31 2023 – 7:00 PM
location: Trees Deep Ellum
American singer/songwriter Rayland Baxter is an artist whose music is at once mystic and down to earth, focused on the ebb and flow of human relations while wrapped in simple but evocative melodies and sung in a voice that reflects the mysteries of life that are the stuff of his songs. He first rose to national attention when his 2012 debut, Feathers & FishHooks, was reissued by ATO Records, kicking off a subsequent string of critically acclaimed releases for the label. He pursued a rootsy but exploratory sound on 2015’s Imaginary Man, added tougher rock accents on 2018’s Wide Awake, and explored a more mature musical and philosophical outlook on 2022’s If I Were a Butterfly.
