Rod Picott

Seventeen years ago Rod Picott dropped his tool belt, picked up an acoustic guitar and released his first album Tiger Tom Dixon’s Blues. The acclaimed debut put a nail in the coffin of his construction career and ignited his second career as a singer-songwriter.

Tiger Tom Dixon’s Blues was named after his great-uncle, a boxer during the Great Depression, and featured his version of “Broke Down”, a song he co-wrote with long-time friend Slaid Cleaves. A year later he released the follow-up disc Stray Dogs. Two years later he released his third disc, Girl from Arkansas. In 2005 he released a live album Travel Log that featured his friend, dobro-player Matt Mauch.

Picott was born in New Hampshire, but grew up in South Berwick, Maine, where he played in various local bands.  Picott met Slaid Cleaves on his first day of second grade and the two became lifelong friends and even wrote several songs together.
Rod’s new album, Tell The Truth & Shame The Devil, is recorded, mixed and mastered and due for release later in the year.
