John Egan, “Phantoms” (Gin Diaries)

The son of a former Houston Rockets point guard and coach of the same name, Mr. Egan is a regular presence on the Houston club scene, playing dark but rich-sounding solo blues on a resonator guitar.

“He’s been kicking around Houston for years and just starting to get the credit he deserves,” Mr. Bishop said. “He’s a stomping, hollering bluesman. But in a lot of ways, along with the blues, it’s also got an outsider-folk element to it, like it’s cut from the cloth of a classic Tom Waits record. It’s a really dark and masterful album.”
