Dark Folk-Blues meets Gothic Americana.
“Melancholy, isolated, alternative folk-blues, bridging the gap between Townes Van Zandt, Nick Cave, Tom Waits and Skip James (if Skip James had a voice like Blind Willie McTell).” —Greg Lonesome, Host, Rock N’ Roll Manifesto

Rediscovered. Remastered. Released. Call it Preacher Boy’s lost album. It began with a vow—write and record a new song every day for … as long as possible. It ended 42 songs later in a Chicago hospital in the middle of winter.

A chance glance into an old box led to the rediscovery of these recordings. 16 of the 42 are now commercially available for the first time. Rediscovered. Remastered. Released.

As densely layered as the recordings sound—built up with piano, organ, electric and acoustic guitars, mandolins, banjos, violins—they were all recorded in one room, to one 8-track machine. Call it ... what? Gothic Americana? Chamber Blues? Alternative Folk?

Call it Preacher Boy’s lost album. Call it Preacher Boy's new album. Call it ... Estate Bottled Blues.
