This episode, we're privileged to visit with musician and visual artist Wes Freed. Wes is best known for creating the album cover and poster art for the band Drive-By Truckers. During our in-depth conversation, we touch on a lot of varied ground including: people's misconceptions about the American South, the greatness of shows like Breaking Bad and The Walking Dead, why Wes feels all parties ultimately benefited from Jason Isbell's departure from DBT, his participation in the documentary 'The Secret to a Happy Ending' and his penchant for using unique found objects as the canvas for his art. Providing some heartfelt music for us is an authentic Americana band from Los Angeles named The Far West. We'll feature 2 songs from their self-titled debut album. For more about the work of Wes Freed, and to check out his phenomenal portfolio, go to www.wesfreed.com. The Far West can be found on both Facebook and their website, www.thefarwestband.com.
