Jefferson Hart and the Ghosts of the Old State
Original Power pop
“Built on a base of country twang but finished with touches of British Invasion rock, ‘60’s garage pop, ‘70’s Laurel Canyon and, of course, native North Carolina bluegrass and jangle pop, Ghosts of the Old North State reveals Hart as an equally fine collector and creator.” – Chris Parker, The Independent Weekly
“His prize possession is a guitar signed by over a dozen of his heroes including Paul Westerberg, John Hiatt, Robert Earl Keen, and Matthew Sweet-with a combination of that foursome providing a decent description of Hart’s sound…and from a Byrds-eye view, the pre-Clarence White Byrds. ” – Rick Cornell-No Depression
“I challenge anyone to find a better in-the-wee-hours song than the exceptional ‘From Now On’ with such lines as “Colder than the backside of your pillowcase”. Lesser artists have made careers of such songs. ” – Record Exchange Monitor
