Josh Nolan – Fair City Lights (self-released)
The two biggest influences on Josh Nolan‘s Fair City Lights each released their own albums this year: Bruce Springsteen mined his back catalog and tackled music of others on High Hopes while John Mellencamp pandered to the AARP crowd with Plain Spoken. And yet, the little-known kid from Kentucky trumped both with Fair City Lights.
Embodying the spirit and joy of rock and roll, Nolan is a welcome gift who proved great music can be made from sheer will and determination. I can’t wait to hear what Nolan comes up with next.
