The Austin 100: Twain
Hometown: Franklin County, Virginia
Why We're Excited: Twain's vast, searching music conjures the cosmic folk of Tim Buckley: A welcoming, wandering rumination on life, the afterlife, loneliness and "the beauties of this earthly world," "Solar Pilgrim" feels at once human and otherworldly. The latest project to feature singer Mt. Davidson — he's worked with The Low Anthem, Spirit Family Reunion and others — Twain makes the kind of music that, had it been made 50 years ago, would be a cherished cult item today.
