Storytelling is something of a Texas tradition. Tall hats and even taller tales are woven into the fabric of The Lone Star State, and singer- songwriter, Jarrod Dickenson can spin a yarn with the best of them.
Hailing from Waco, now based in Nashville via Brooklyn, Dickenson spends most of his time on the road bringing his own particular brand of soulful Americana to a wide variety of music loving audiences around the globe.
Jarrod’s critically acclaimed album ‘The Lonesome Traveler’ and his subsequent EP ‘Songs From Willow St’ paved the way for him to tour the UK, Ireland and Europe extensively over the last several years. Breakout performances at Glastonbury and Larmer Tree Festival, along with recent tours supporting legendary artists such as Bonnie Raitt, Don McLean and The Waterboys have earned Jarrod a formidable and loyal fan base across the globe. His latest album, ‘Ready The Horses’ came out on Decca Records last year.
