Greg Trooper 

When: Sun., June 5, 8 p.m. 2011
Price: $10-12

It's easy to get lost in the Americana singer/ songwriter shuffle when there are so many decks in play. But Greg Trooper's the type of artist whose talent startles when you first discover him, prompting wonder that, after three decades making music, he's not better known. After all, other songwriters have taken note—Vince Gill, Steve Earle, Robert Earl Keen and Billy Bragg have all covered his songs. Trooper's voice is soulful, though the music blends folk and blues fed by keen character sketches and homey front-porch reflections. There's a deep strain of The Band on his latest, Upside-Down Town, particularly the touching Hammond-driven ode to familial loss, "Bulletproof Heart." —Chris Parker
