Pick Your Poison

Pick Your Poison
Bursting with exhilarating, genre-expanding blues and roots anchored by Selwyn’s gruff, urgent vocals and fiery guitar and lap steel playing.  Thirteen striking original songs roam through raw roots rock, infectious Southern R&B, sweaty funk jams, searing blues and after hours ballads, forging a groundbreaking new sound created by one of the most sensational new blues talents in ages.  "A remarkable contemporary bluesman...a powerhouse guitarist and soulful vocalist...highly recommended"—Rolling Stone
