    I just recently discovered Asie Payton. It's funny, I grew up in Indianola, Mississippi, which is about 10 miles from where Asie had his farm (Holly Ridge, Mississippi) and some of his local juke joint performances. I never knew he existed, until now. I'm making up for lost time and listening to his album a lot.



    I hope others will enjoy his performances as much as I do.

    Thanks for viewing.
