My KUTX: James Petralli

Posted by on Apr 9, 2014

This week on My KUTX, we’ve got White Denim‘s guitarist/vocalist – James Petralli.

Anybody familiar with the local music scene in Austin will tell you that White Denim is one of the most exciting things coming out of this city right now, which is quite the feat considering we have so much to brag about. Their latest record, Corsicana Lemonade, was recorded with help from Wilco’s Jeff Tweedy and made many of our Top 10 Lists of 2013.

James Petralli’s musical influences range from Stevie Wonder and Sly & The Family Stone to Joni Mitchell and Sun Ra. Check out his exclusive KUTX playlist right HERE!
