Learn why Blues Access Magazine said, "His (Feldman's) style should gain him wide recognition."

The group (fronted by the folksy voice and roots guitar playing of Tom Feldman) draws from a variety of styles to form their unique, haunting sound.

I see why the genre labels applied to the band range from blues, spirituals, Americana and folk.  It's hard to peg this band. Don't try; just enjoy the music.

The band is for people that like the blues, Folk, or old time spirituals. Relative to the camp town revival spiritual sound, think of the Son House song, "John the Revelator" that was repeated a few times throughout in the Blues Brothers 2000 flick. Then, add resonator guitar ala "Mississippi" Fred McDowell or Bukka White, some smooth percussion with brushes, and tight, folksy upright bass and that will get you in the ballpark.

Or you can just check out their clips and decide for yourself:
