Inspired to multitask his music career by the big boss man Jimmy Reed (who played harmonica and guitar simultaneously), the one-man blues band Lone Wolf gets busy quickly, delivering his rapid-fire picking style, which is a far cry from the sexy-smooth style of a Reed standard like “Honest I Do.” His banjo’s dancey song overpowers his Tom Waits-like grunted vocals, and the crazed set that ensues fills the room and typically draws a flock of the area’s Americana devotees. What’s more, he’s coming around with still-fresh songs from his latest release A Walk in My Pause, including a track that details the horrors of living through Hurricane Andrew, sure to resonate with longtime residents who endured similar discomforts. Getting even more Florida about it, the album art features a swampy scene encompassing much of our state’s wildlife, which hopefully indicates that the other 12 tracks draw from other familiar state settings. – Ashley Belanger
