Artist Biography by

Sixfinger Severson is a country blues guitarist who performed with David Allan Coe during the mid-'90s and embarked on a short-lived solo career afterward. Born Wayne Severson on September 14, 1955, he played guitar on a few Allan Coe albums released by King Records: Lonesome Fugitive (1994), The Perfect Country and Western Song (1994), and Truckin' Outlaw (1994). While these little-heard albums rarely appear in discographies of the outlaw country legend, whose commercial fortunes had bottomed out a decade earlier, the association between Severson and Allan Coe was a boon to the guitarist's career prospects. Severson embarked on a solo career afterward, specializing in humorous country blues with a touch of rock. He self-released the albums No I Don't Play Basketball (1995) and Refinished (1998). Then he released the album Bite the Buddha (2000) on Lion Feather Records. In later years he played guitar in Cool Beenz, a self-described blues-rock party band based in Branson, MO, that played regularly throughout the state.
