(Grandiflora Records) 9 Tracks - Gatefold Cover Afton Wolfe is Mississippi. Born in McComb and raised in Meridian, Hattiesburg and Greenville, Mississippi, the roots of American music are in his DNA. Mississippi is the birthplace of at least three American art forms: Country Music, Blues Music, and Rock and Roll. Meridian is the birthplace of Jimmie Rodgers, while the Mississippi Delta is the birthplace of the blues and the first rock n' roll notes ever played came from Hattiesburg, according to intelligent music historians. He also spent his musically formative years in and around New Orleans, where the humidity of Mississippi combined with Cajun spices, jazz, zydeco, Creole and gospel music and his Mississippi roots converge to give resonance and depth to his blues/country/rock influences.
