See Brent Cobb’s Moody ‘Black Crow’ at Sam Phillips Studios

Swamp-soaked track from ‘Shine on Rainy Day’ LP highlights Cobb’s Georgia roots

Brent Cobb’s rural roots, which are an integral element of his artistry, come to life in the natural setting that is the legendary Sam Phillips Studios in Memphis. The historic recording venue where unpretentious R&B, rock & roll, gospel and country music have so beautifully co-existed for decades is the perfect backdrop for Cobb’s latest performance in the “Elektra Sessions Live” series as the native of south central Georgia and his band perform the swampy, languid “Black Crow,” a tune about all finding self-redemption after following a darker path.

“‘Black Crow’ is about taking the long way home to right a wrong,” says Cobb of the tune from Shine on Rainy Day, the LP helmed by his cousin, in-demand producer Dave Cobb. The original album version of “Black Crow” is also distinguished by slide-guitar work from Jason Isbell.

Cobb’s hefty 2017 tour schedule has him sharing stages with a wide variety of acts. His headlining trek with Nikki Lane launched Wednesday night in Birmingham and he’s set to make his debut at Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium Friday, February 24th as a special guest when Little Big Town launch their Ryman Auditorium residency. In addition, there are upcoming dates with Chris Stapleton on his All-American Road Show and he’ll participate in the Stagecoach Spotlight Tour with Jamey Johnson and Margo Price. In September Cobb is among the artists warming up crowds on Tim McGraw and Faith Hill’s Soul2Soul Tour.
