Signs and Signifiers, the debut record from bluesy, rockabilly artist JD McPherson, was rereleased by Rounder Records earlier this year. The wider release gives music fans a second chance to discover a quickly rising talent in McPherson.
JD MCPherson will perform at the Minnesota State Fair on August 27. He joined us slightly jet-lagged (3 different countries in 5 days) to talk about Signs and Signifiers, traveling Europe and trading instruments in punk bands. "I had three simultaneous punk bands - all with the same members who would change instruments." JD also performs a few songs to help fans pass the time until the fair.
Songs performed: "North Side Gal," "Farmer John," "Signs & Signifiers," and "Dimes For Nickles."
