Waylon Thornton

gothabilly // folk

In my hunt for a loud, abrasive sound, I found Waylon Thornton’s raw guitar riff drum pounding garage surf Lake Butler, Florida grit to finally satisfy. After listening to the 20+ albums he’s unleashed over the span of five years, the instrumental Black Salt became my favorite.. for a time. Eventually storms subside and I mosey along; catching inspiration or simply exploring until I’m somewhere. Drifting down New River Vol.1, parting clouds shape imagination and cooling water splashes my face as I lay on a raft of improvised twangy acoustic tunes. Their scenic, contemplative spirit holds wisdom, struggle, freedom and genuine splendor. I feel the essence of music’s magic in Waylon’s craft.
