Cory Branan is an enigmatic solo performer who mixes rough-and-tumble alt-country with the John Prine tradition of slapstick storytelling. Utilizing deft fingerpicking and his Champagne of Voices, Branan plays his songs as fast or slow as his Memphis heart desires (it varies according to his blood-alcohol level). Backed by Madjack Records and occasional sidekicks, Branan tours like a sailor and indulges in "recreational self-destruction, and the lamentations of the women."
