“Heavily blues based Americana, Jim Gustin & Truth Jones deliver the goods with power and authority. Gustin has a voice that has a smoky, raspy tone and he uses it to the best of his ability. Blues/rock with some great arrangements, Can’t Shed A Tear is a well-rounded release that leans heavily on the side of emotional power. Gustin is a man who has been through the mill, paying his dues, learning life’s lessons the hard way. Instead of going completely into the self-destruct mode, he used his experiences as fuel for his songwriting which leans heavily on the storytelling side. I’ve been listening to Can’t Shed a Tear for hours, just letting it soak in. Each time through I hear something new. That is a quality I like. This one has a lived-in feel. The truth behind the words speaks to the heart, giving it a real power. The power in blues is in the heart of the performer and his or her ability to convey that to the people. Jim Gustin & Truth Jones has that ability. - Bil”
