Otis Gibbs is a man in search of an honest experience. Some people refer to him as a folk artist, but that is a simplistic way to describe a man who has planted over 7,000 trees, slept in hobo jungles, walked with nomadic shepherds in the Carpathian Mountains, been strip-searched by dirty cops in Detroit, and has an FBI file.

    Zebulon: That song is called "The Town That Killed Kennedy." It will be on his next album, which is scheduled to be released early 2010.

    Saw him last night. If he is playing ANYWHERE near you, GO!
