Barna Howard – Quite A Feelin’ (2015)

barna howardFans of Jerry Jeff Walker’s Mr. Bojangles and road-weary Lightfoot will find a lot to like in Portland-via-Illinois Barna Howard’s second album.

With echoes of those great 70’s Jimmy Webb characters resigned to a need to move on that we all share, literally or figuratively, Howard writes without cliche or hyperbole.

He has an ear for a phrase and is a superb picker. Good time to get started collecting what promises to be a big back catalogue.
