Charley Crockett just released Charley Crockett presents Lil G.L.’s Blue Bonanza last week through Thirty Tigers, which is his second album release this year. This album pays tribute to Crockett’s busking days, and is “stocked with his own interpretations of old-school country songs and half-forgotten blues gems” – songs originally performed by George Jones, Ernest Tubb, T-Bone Walker, Jimmy Reed, Charles Brown, Lavelle White, Ray Charles, and more.

“I love timeless songs,” says Crockett. “I’ve always believed that the more timeless songs you learn how to play, the more timeless songs you can write.”

On the heels of his critically acclaimed Lonesome As A Shadow album release, Crockett swung through Indianapolis earlier this year, opening for Shooter Jennings, and pretty much stole the show. For those unfamilar, Crockett brings a mix of Texas blues, classic country and Cajun soul to his songs.
