Meet OJR, a singer-songwriter based in Nashville, who just completely shines on his new album, Nashville Demos.

OJR (real name Oliver John-Rodgers), recorded his new album in “various bedrooms” (presumably his!) and with the exception of a handful of contributions from players from Nashville he recorded most of the songs himself on Garage Band.

On his Facebook page, he describes the genre of music he plays as “acid cowboy,” and the album runs the American music gamut. You can hear strains of country and folk informed by indie and psychedelic rock. It’s fresh and refreshing, and there’s a dual musical nature on this record that presents OJR as both the singer-songwriter and the rock and roller that is very impressive.

Listen to the album below, and order it here.
