Show Notes

The lovable frontman, singer, songwriter, and musician with Concrete Confetti, the Gutter Brothers, and Sonny Schneidau’s Fortifiers started out busking on the streets of London with a jacked-up jug band-turned-skiffle outfit before moving indoors and getting signed to Elvis Costello’s Demon Records. Coming from a legendary New Orleans family, he grew up among bohemian royalty. Tonight he climbs back into the gutter to slum it with the Troubled Men.
