Jojo Hermann - Defector
Written by Nicholas Jennings    PDF Print E-mail

Jojo Hermann - DefectorHermann is the keyboardist for Widespread Panic, one of the many popular neo-hippie jam bands, like Phish and Blues Traveller, to have emerged in the wake of the Grateful Dead. Hermann’s second solo album eschews trippy noodling in favor of crisp, catchy slices of southern rock and country. Working again with Luther and Cody Dickinson of the North Mississippi All-Stars, he cooks up a rich gumbo, especially on the bluesy “And You Wonder” and the hilarious roadhouse boogie “True Blood Assembly.” Tasty stuff.
