EDITOR'S NOTE: Even the shortlist of artists who have been compared to Bob Dylan, is a long one. Seemingly every singer/songwriter with an unconventional voice has been tabbed with the Dylan comparison at some point in their career. But rarely has the comparison been accurate on a multi-dimensional level. You see, Kevin Morby does more than sing folk songs with an unique voice, his writing also mirrors a young Dylan, with song titles like "I Have Been to the Mountain" - which just sounds like the name of a lost Dylan B-Side. But lyrically Morby mirrors not only Dylan, but other great artists like Woody Guthrie and Joan Baez of the era, who were part of a sub-genre called "protest folk" - where Dylan wrote about the infamous murder of Emmett Till, Morby address the 2015 death of Freddie Gray at the hands of the Baltimore Police Department. Morby's tune "Beautiful Strangers" could pass as a mid 60's-70's protest song to pretty much anyone who hadn't heard of him before. Dressed in a suit that looked like something he borrowed from Brian Setzer, Morby took over The Sinclair in Cambridge, MA last night for a show that started with a sparse crowd, but was approaching capacity by the time he went on. Opening for Morby was his newest protege and newest signee to Morby's label "Mare Records" - Shannon Lay.
