The evolution of Rocky Votolato has come full circle. Born in a small Texas town and living the better part of his life in Seattle, the troubadour spent years in the rock band Waxwing before settling into his current incarnation as a country-folk musician. On his own after a short run with Barsuk, Votolato continues to dig into his Texas roots, playing somber bedroom folk with clever wordplay. It becomes important to zoom in on those lyrics, too, as his sparse folk songs have a way of blurring together. But true is the audience that follows Votolato, as they kicked in nearly $40,000 in a Kickstarter campaign for his latest release, Television of Saints. MARK LORE
