Wurster 'Raw' - Self release

This is the 13th release from Florida based singer-songwriter Jim Wurster. It contains 5 original compositions and 5 cover songs; all recorded in a live setting. The acoustic feel is very important to the artist as a true representation of the live shows performed. The playing is understated with various guitars and vintage pedals augmented by stand- up bass and drums.

The roots feel of the music is true to traditions of the American heartland with stories of love affairs and rough justice, city living and hard lessons learned.  Covers of Neil Young (Southern Pacific), Sonny Bono (Bang Bang), the Doors (Riders on the Storm) and Fred Neil (Dade County Jail) join forces with the original songs of Jim Wurster. Big Surprise and Ojus both work well in this context and the final track, a cover of Sunshine Melody by Jimmie Davis and Bill Withers, closes the recording with a Johnny Cash style delivery that is both unsettling and mellow at the same time.
