With “Post-Modern Blues,” Ewing may have well coined the perfect descriptor for his music. Whether political or personal, Ewing sings in a traditional format about our crazy, mixed-up modern world in a way that listeners can easily identify with and latch on to. That may be Ewing's greatest appeal — his songs are more like a wise buddy talking to you at a bar, devoid of any didactic "I'm the singer, you're the listener" separation.
