Your Daily Lick: The Jonah Kit

American Songbag (Fugitive Kind)



Jonah Watchman sounds a bit like Bob Dylan - in the sense that he's almost always off-key. Instead of mumbling, Watchman tells his everyman tales with Broadway spunk in a high-pitch croon. Acoustic guitar, upright bass, and drums play their part, but even if it's hard to listen to some of his vocals, they so dominate the spectrum it's harder to tune them out.
