The Music

“Rod Gilstrap is a contemporary country singer/songwriter based in Wyoming with a knack for writing melodic and emotional songs and smooth frontman’s voice with which to sing them. His latest release, Cavalier, is a mostly acoustic effort that takes advantage of the minimal arrangements employed and keeps listener’s attention squarely focused on Gilstrap’s lyrics, characters, and stories. Country music is a storytelling art, after all, one that’s been corrupted in recent times and could use a lot more of what Rod has to offer. His songs are simple and direct with an easy spaciousness only a lifelong Westerner like himself could deliver. “

“Like the best country music, Gilstrap’s songs capture and explore little slices of everyday life, some pleasant and some not. He is unafraid to dive deeper than many songwriters do into life’s difficult moments and introduce us to the real people experiencing them. “
