Billy Iuso knows funk. It’s no wonder that the NOLA staple recruited an all-star cast of local musicians to back him on his fourth solo studio release, Overstanding. The new album sees Iuso collaborating with George Porter Jr., Ivan Neville, Art Neville, and so many more. There’s even a cameo from Lil’ Billy Iuso too!

Overstanding features ten all new tracks from Iuso, including a handful of covers of songs by Jaik Miller. It’s a great listen, so what are you waiting for? Give it a spin below:
