JPR Live Session: Logan Ledger
It was a collection of demos Logan Ledger recorded as a favor for a friend that ended up in the hands of T Bone Burnett. The legendary producer was enamored with Ledger's original sound, and offered up his skills along with a crack studio band - the same crew heard on Raising Sand (Robert Plant/Alison Krauss).
Ledger's musical education first started with his grandmother's eclectic assemblage of Elvis, Orbison, and R&B records, but he soon discovered the Smithsonian Folkways label, and the sometimes obscure perfomers that would have otherwise be lost to history.
While Ledger doesn't actually consider himself a 'country singer' per se, his debut album it at times heavily colored by the classic country crooner sound of past decades.
