"That was Townes Van Zandt-worthy." That's what an impressed friend said after BJ Barham stepped away from his American Aquarium brethren and their ringing anthems for a penetrating solo turn at the recent Chip Robinson benefit. High praise, at which Barham would no doubt offer that he (and everybody else) has a way to go to reach Townes territory. But it does speak to Barham's inspirations: Picture a congregation with Texas singer/ songwriters in the first pew, Springsteen in the middle and alt-country heyday heroes Whiskeytown and the Backsliders in the rear. They provide a foundation for his Raleightown hymns. With House of Fools and Crowfield. —Rick Cornell
