Rich O’Toole is pure Texan; ask anyone with a radio in the Lone Star State, and odds are they’ve heard his stuff. Of course, O’Toole’s appeal isn’t restricted to Texas alone. His music speaks to deep, honest American ideals in a plainspoken way that recalls everything great about country music. His new album, Jaded, is the most direct expression of O’Toole’s unique perspective yet. Songs like the title track convey pure, unrestrained emotion, something that comes across even more so in the video for the song. Musicians just aren’t this up front anymore. You can check out the video for “Jaded” below.
