Son Volt

One of the nation’s most venerable and lasting alt-country bands, Son Volt continues to deliver sturdy songs that take tradition and twist it into something distinct. Led by Jay Farrar — who was also a founding member of Uncle Tupelo with Jeff Tweedy — Son Volt carries an abundance of both sadness and hope, still sounding like modern troubadour music three decades in.
