Hit play on ‘I Dreamt Blues’ below and you’ll quickly see why we all just sort of sat there silent for a few seconds after Vikesh Kapoor got done playing last Saturday night at Timber! Fest. There’s something striking about the way Kapoor weaves his story in ‘I Dreamt Blues’ (and, indeed, all of his songs), a subdued urgency and conviction permeating each note and line about someone who we may never know but whose trials and troubles we can most certainly relate to. This is a special talent, guys and gals.
Vikesh Kapoor’s debut album, The Ballad of Willy Robbins, is due out October 15th. Enjoy.
