Petunia & The Vipers - Imagine that David Lynch and Nick Cave had a hillbilly baby, that yodeled...or Tom Waits meets Elvis at Woody Guthrie's hobo junction. The man known simply as Petunia has been described in many ways. He's been referred to as "The Savior of Country Music," and a man who exists in a different era, even Hank Williams on acid. The mysterious, mononymous, trilingual from Quebec has been working for twenty years to perfect his arresting, yodelriffic, vocal style. For seven of those years, Petunia made his living as a street performer across North America. The result is a dynamic whoop and holler that can drop from a boisterous crescendo to mousy whisper at a moment's notice. In Petunia's own words, "It's all an exploration of sound."
