About Slim Pickens

I have played at Byron Bluesfest 3 times, Blues on Broadbeach festival 5 times and lots of others in Australia and overseas.
I just released my 8th album. I play Americana music.. Delta Blues/Country/Old Timey. Songs from the Great Depression and others going back as far as the 1920s.
A quote from Rhythms magazine..
“Slim Pickens is singer, songwriter, guitarist and producer with a penchant for the aesthetics of simpler times.
Think Woody Guthrie meets Ramblin’ Jack Elliot with a little Ry Cooder unpredictability thrown into the mix.”
