Brushy One-String
Destiny

It sounds like a gimmick but it’s not: Brushy’s guitar really does only have one string, but that’s as much as the man needs. With a warm, rich baritone and the wisdom of the ages, Brushy’s deceptively simple but relentlessly energetic tunes summon up home truths about life, love, injustice, war, and hard times. Coming off like a cross between street preacher and cool uncle, Brushy keeps it real in ways that most rappers can only dream of. It’s not at all gloom and doom though: lighter tunes like “Chicken in the Corn” prove that there’s plenty of joy to be found out there as well. Soul? This guy oozes it. David Maine
