Magnolia Thunderpussy

Formerly known as Rod Melancon, Gator embraces his roots on the new album as he takes on the name originally given to him by his father. "'For Louisiana' is a song about self doubt and the ups and downs of being a touring musician," explains Gator. "It's about missing the places you grew up and the people that shaped your childhood. Even though it's far from perfect, it'll always be my home." Blending Louisiana soul with greasy country-rock, Texas blues and electrified funk, Gator's music doesn't just nod to the American South, it creates it's own sonic geography.
