Tulsa Voice reviews Jacob Tovar & The Saddle Tramps’ S/T debut album

Tulsa Voice reviews Jacob Tovar & The Saddle Tramps‘ S/T debut album, coming out on CD, vinyl and digital formats from Horton Records on August 28th.

The first single, “Three Good Reasons,” is a potential Cain’s Ballroom sell-out hit. Luthier and slide guitar player Seth Lee Jones nails the solo section with lightning speed and precision. Not to be outdone, electric guitarist Cooper Waugh beefs up the sound with a country Tele twang that could rival Waylon Jennings. He and Jones bounce off each other like a rowdy saloon patron on a mechanical bull. Tovar himself soars, juggling both rhythm and lead parts, though his booming voice tends to steal the show. His timbre is reminiscent of country greats like Webb Pierce, whose 1953 hit, “There Stands the Glass,” showcases Tovar’s voice beautifully.
