Of course when you’re 22 and get tapped to open for Jack White in 2014, people will talk about you, and you will deserve it. The second Tampa-born artist to make our list today, Booker’s brand is woolly, nebulous guitar rock shelled out in quick, loose strips befitting of blues halls, country jives, and rock clubs, blown free across the country by Booker’s soft howl. You can be sure Booker is crossing genre partitions to appeal to many, including those attending this weekend’s FYF Fest. You can stream his new album, out now, at NPR First Listen here
