Roy Ira

If this picture isn't enough to intrigue you, then go check out Roy Ira's songs at Myspace or Facebook. Much different than most music I listen to, but equally as good. This description should help you decide whether or not you are interested, taken straight from the band's Myspace: "Sounds like: hank williams and the carter family meet will oldham, perhaps. but not nearly that good. maybe beck 'one foot in the grave' runs into the johnny cash american recordings outtakes. hopefully something like that."

They just recently recorded a new 6 song EP, and you can hear all the songs online. They are performing Feb. 20 at the Mercy Lounge in Nashville, TN.
