If Chet Atkins had ever studied African guitar pickin', he might've ended up with something like the "Afrobilly" guitar-style of Matt Lax. Hurricane and a Tumbleweed, the latest CD from Matt Lax and his band Nearly Beloved, melds this unique guitar approach with good humor and an ample serving of classic Nashville songwriting. Soweto and Cameroon guitar influences shine through, yet the overall effect is Americana at its best.
