DENT MAY

May, a former NYU film student who made his way back to Mississippi to pursue music, debuted in 2007 alongside his Magnificent Ukulele, his onetime instrument of choice. Since then, the 27 year old has played an integral role in fostering the Cats Purring, a community of artists and musicians centered around the 5,000 square foot barn he now calls home. Signed to AnCo's Paw Tracks imprint, his winsome, Serge Gainsbourg-indebted songbook bears little resemblance to that of his label's founders, but his free-wheeling approach (he's swapped the uke for beatwork of late) is definitely at one with their worldview.
