AMERICANA HIGHWAYS premieres the video for  “Rain and Snow” , the rockin’ murder ballad from 2018’s   Fire Dream  ( JD’s first studio-recorded solo album.)  “British animator and artist Teresa Lobos has created for me a strange yet lovely music video that is almost more a “stop-motion” collage.  The video has arrived just in time for the Halloween / Day of the Dead season too. It accompanies my rendition of the old, English murder ballad “Rain and Snow” (as heard on my solo album  Fire Dream .)  There’s a lot of pagan weirdness in this video. From cow-skull masks to voodoo dolls to creepy, dancing marionettes being cranked in a box. I’m not really sure what’s going on, but I like it!” — J.D. Wilkes

J.D. Wilkes' solo album Fire Dream out 2/16/18 on Big Legal Mess/Fat Possum. Imagine a sideshow blowing in on a Caribbean gale, only to land smack dab in a Kentucky junkyard. Then, and only then, might a listener begin to picture a suitable setting for FIRE DREAM, the latest solo album by musician/novelist J.D. Wilkes. Backed by an all-star cast of the South's most eclectic musicians (including members of both The Squirrel Nut Zippers and the Drive-By Truckers!), Wilkes crafts a soundscape of his homeland's varied voices. From the old-time music of Appalachia to the Cajun, jazz and island music of the Creole nether-glades, Fire Dream charters the listener on a journey... a journey, as it turns out, that has led only deeper into J.D.'s storied psyche.
