Jas Stewart - Just Short of Redemption

In his debut release, singer/songwriter Jas Stewart gathers A-list Nashville session players to create an eclectic interpretation of his prodigious song catalog. Sonically the tracks range from top tapping country roots-rock to moving gospel numbers. In addition to his own laconic JJ Cale like vocal styling, the album features guest vocals from gospel divas Regina McCrary and George Pendergrass. Looking to support an emerging top flight Americana talent on your show? This disk's for you.
