Weaned on Tom Petty and the Beatles, Scott Blasey grew up in the Rust Belt. He got out eventually -- after about 20 years as the frontman of the Clarks, in which he wrote some of the era's great (albeit sadly underheralded) album-rock songs. Now living in Texas, he revisited his formative years to write the new Travelin' On, his third solo disc. On the title track, he fondly recalls (ahem) borrowing cars, hitting the open road, and trying to escape a little dead-end town. His acoustic solo sets feature nuanced and graceful solo material and stripped-down renditions of Clarks classics like "Born Too Late."
