GRAMMY-winning singer/songwriter Jakob Dylan previewed his new album Women + Country at the GRAMMY Museum's The Drop series on April 5, while discussing and playing samples from the T Bone Burnett-produced set before an intimate audience of 200.
Dylan's second solo album, which was released the day after this question-and-answer session, has been described as cinematic and impressionistic by AllMusic.com, and Dylan confessed to Rolling Stone magazine that his famous father, Bob Dylan, approves of the disc. "He's very supportive," Dylan told the magazine.
Carrying the burden of being the son of perhaps the most iconic songwriter of the pop era, Jakob Dylan nevertheless staked his own ground with the breakthrough 1996 Wallflowers album Bringing Down The Horse, which spawned GRAMMY Awards for Best Rock Song and Best Rock Performance By A Duo Or Group With Vocals via the track "One Headlight." He released his first solo album, Seeing Things, in 2008. Women + Country features backing vocals by GRAMMY nominee Neko Case and Kelly Hogan.
