Sturgill Simpson

Formerly the leader of Sunday Valley, an energetic roots outfit that made some waves in the early year of the new millennium, Sturgill Simpson gained greater renown as a solo artist, initially thanks to his muscular 2013 solo debut High Top Mountain. In March 2016, he released A Sailor’s Guide to Earth. The self-produced album featured a guest appearance from The Dap-Kings. It earned rave reviews plus a surprise nomination for Grammy’s Album of the Year.
