With his deep, gruff delivery, casual strumming, and tales of the countryside, William Elliott Whitmore’s songs sound like they could have been outtakes from the “O Brother, Where Art Thou?” soundtrack. This is boxcar-hopping, straw-chewing, moonshine-sipping folk in its simplest form. Whitmore may be a young man, but on Ashes To Dust he sounds like a wrinkled, rocking chair veteran who spends his time outside the general store spitting tobacco and telling tales of times gone by. Unfortunately, this traditional sound is not only his trademark, but also his Achilles’ heel.
