Fraser A. Gorman — Slow Gum

Australian singer-songwriter and Courtney Barnett pal Fraser A. Gorman wants you to know how much he values the legacy of Americana. Just look at him: The many sepia-toned photos of the troubadour feature his mop of Dylanesque curls, bolo ties, and denim jackets. His debut, Slow Gum, features a reworking of Jackson C. Frank’s 1965 classic “Blues Run the Game”, as well as an admission that “country music sounds to me like rock ’n’ roll.” Gorman is a charming writer and performer, and Slow Gum is successful, but he doesn’t need to lean so hard on his influences.
