A very obscure bluesman about whom very little is known. Many of his recordings portray a distinctive country-blues performer with a bent for slow, dirge-like songs, ideally suited to his intricate guitar work. He was also responsible for the rather eccentric "Voice Throwin' Blues". Possibly born in north Alabama or the northern Mississippi Delta region, recordings he made for Paramount between 1927 and 1929 may provide a clue to his background. Many of these relate to trains and life on the railway and may indicate his involvement with the railroad, either as a rail worker or as an itinerant hobo. Nothing further is known of his life after these recordings were made.
