“Hook’s In the Water”
Steve Itterly harkens back to the early days of Dylan for this protest song that he first started penning in response to the mass shooting in El Paso last year. The songwriter from Colorado embodies that authentic folk feel in this live studio recording to capture the raw, downtrodden-but-not-yet-broken power that encapsulated the protest music of the 1960s. Itterly asks some important questions and offers listeners points to ponder, especially during an election year, so I suggest you listen and listen hard.
