Jarrod Dickenson Band
Jarrod returns with full band, following tours with The Waterboys and John Fullbright
Storytelling is a Texas tradition. Tall hats and taller tales are woven into the fabric of The Lone Star State, and singer-songwriter, Jarrod Dickenson can spin a yarn with the best of them. Hailing from Waco, now based in Brooklyn, Dickenson spends most of his time on the road bringing his own brand of soulful Americana to a wide variety of music loving audiences around the globe.
Jarrod's critically acclaimed album The Lonesome Traveler saw him tour with The Waterboys, Bonnie Raitt, Jools Holland, Laura Marling, David Bromberg, John Fulbright, Duke Special and David Ford. His EP, Songs From Willow St, gained him airplay from BBC radio hosts Cerys Matthews, Dermot O'Leary, Huey Morgan, Janice Long, Robert Elms and Alex Lester. He also performed breakout performances at Glastonbury and Larmer Tree.
"If you can catch him, you should...he reminds of this cat, Gram Parsons" - Huey Morgan, BBC Radio 2
“A voice like a young Tom Waits...Jarrod Dickenson's songs are simply breathtaking, possessing melodies many of his peers would give their left arm for.” - No Depression
"An incredible talent" - Janice Long, BBC Radio 2
"Brilliant songs" - Cerys Matthews, BBC Radio 6 Music
"Jarrod Dickenson's road worn melodies and lyrics invoke a mid-Western post-war America, when cars ran on leaded gas, television hadn't yet kidnapped the country's imagination, and men wore hats every day. His reflective lyrics, almost like hand-written letters, remind us that human stories of lost love, sudden fortune, and abiding mystery transcend the decades...and nothing is better or worse right now than it's ever been." - Moonlight On The Mountain
