Best known for his role as the harmonica-toting frontman of Blues Traveler, John Popper also sports serious skills as a guitarist and singer, as well as an impressive career dating back to the 1980s.
His new project's eponymous release, John Popper and the Duskray Troubadours, features 12 original tracks. It's described by Popper himself as the "liberating, scrappy, roots-rock alter ego of Blues Traveler," and he's pretty much on the money.
