A singer, live performer and songwriter, Jarrod Dickenson plays in a style that is fitting for a man who comes from the Lone Star State of Texas.

Many of Dickenson's songs are about heartache and broken or unrequited love. They have been described as offering a mournful insight into the 'gut wrenching pain of heartache'. These emotions come to the fore when Dickenson's choice of lyrics is coupled with the raw emotion that is conveyed in his voice. Among Dickenson's many fans, there is the feeling that Dickenson knows his subject matter inside out and that he is a man for whom writing about loss and love truly reflects his life.
Jarrod Dickenson's albums
Dickenson's debut album was entitled Ashes On The Ground and featured many of the songs that he had been playing during his live sets for the few years beforehand. It was released in early 2009 and captured the young performer's unique sound – a blend of folk, blues and Americana. It contained no less than 15 songs. Some of them, such as “Slow it Down”, showed Dickenson off in a jazzy light, although most tracks were in his signature style of country-folk, such as “Goodbye Annie Baby”, for example.
A follow-up album was released in the United States in 2012, and UK-wide a few months later, in 2013. It was called The Lonesome Traveler. Tracks such as “Little Black Dress”, “Bravery (A Bottle of Gin)” and “Ain't Waiting Any Longer” all showcased Dickenson's lyrical and vocal ability. The title song, “Ballad of the Lonesome Traveler” is particularly noteworthy for its use of blues licks.
