Jimbo Mathus grew up in small town Mississippi in the 1980s, but it might as well have been the 1970s, ’60s, or even ’50s, for that matter. Surrounded by “rednecks, radical Pentecostalism, and moonshine bootleggers,” Mathus killed time watching The Lone Ranger and listening to his father and his friends belt out beer-fueled country and gospel songs on the front porch.

Those two words are “Don Crawford.”doesn’t mean he’s not a tough cookie to crack. Since leaving the late-’90s hitmaker Shapeshifter in 2002, Zwig’s released four rootsy, bluesy solo albums—the excellent Cast Iron Letters the most recent among them.

Coming from the same guy who sings that he’s “left with nothing more than my own soul” and “sleeps in rooms where people leave,” it’s surprising how easy it is to make Mark Kozelek laugh. As the supremely melancholy frontman of San Francisco bands Sun Kil Moon and the Red House Painters, Kozelek’s produced some of the most devastating and lovely songs to come out of the ’90s, but today, with his feet propped on a coffee table at his San Francisco home, he’s the picture of contentment.

Now the frontman of the North Mississippi Allstars--the band he formed with his younger brother Cody, a gifted drummer--Luther was born to legendary Memphis musician and producer Jim Dickinson, who has harnessed the musical mayhem of Big Star and the Replacements, played piano on the Stones' "Wild Horses" and Dylan's Time Out of Mind, and befriended the most gifted and underappreciated talents in Hill Country blues.

As an adolescent, Elvis was shepherded between L.A. and New York by his famous parents, and now that his burgeoning career has him employed on the road, he doesn’t keep an apartment anywhere. “I have no need to,” he says, “and by now I’ve forgotten that it was ever any other way than the constant shuffle between cities.”
