Music Around Town

Thor Platter (in the Wine Bar)

When: Fri., Jan. 15, 8 p.m. 2016

For his new album, Long Road Ahead, local singer-songwriter Thor Platter went to Blue Buddha Studio and worked with local producer Jim Wall, the guy who owns the Cleveland-based studio. The disc showcases his crisp vocals, which recall masters such as John Hiatt, Lyle Lovett or Willie Nelson. The song’s arrangements draw from bluegrass and folk but don’t strictly to traditional structures and allow his stellar band that includes bassist Matthew Charboneau and mandolin and fiddle player Bill Lestock to really shine. Two session players — Paul Kovac and Tommy Hannum — also contribute. It's one of our favorite local releases from last year. (Niesel)
