Conventional wisdom says that singer-songwriters need a mythology. We can't supply you with any Lanegan- or Earle-style tales of past drug abuse or Adams-ish anecdotes of stupidity and arrogance in telling the story of Rocky Votolato. But here's what we know: Rocky is a soft-spoken, very kind, very hard-working 32-year-old father of two, born in rural Texas and raised in the Pacific Northwest indie scene (where he fronted the acclaimed rock band Waxwing). He has matured over the course of five increasingly accomplished solo albums, and writes songs that seem to have been scratched into a boxcar wall by a worn-out and lonesome ghost.
