Sanders Bohlke's music sounds simultaneously mellow and vibrant. His soulful voice edges into the blues and soul of his native Oxford, Mississippi, but he provides a distinct touch: His powerful voice soars over wailing blues guitar on one track and elegantly glides over a folk-tinged melody in the next. Bohlke's self-titled debut has drawn comparison to the likes of Amos Lee, while exuding the sounds of a lazy weekend afternoon.
