I’ve been listening to Justin Soileau’s magnificent new self-titled album for several weeks waiting for the right opportunity to write something about it, and it took a listen to “Loneliness and Wine” to open the floodgates. This song encapsulates exactly what makes Soileau’s music such an engaging listen. Blending the seemingly effortless hooks of Will Hoge with whipcord-smart lyricism which rivals Josh Ritter, the song delivers on repeated listens, much as the remainder of the album does. If you haven’t had the chance to hear him, check it out. You won’t go back disappointed.
