Alter egos have a long history in popular music, ranging from individuals such as Hank Williams’ Luke the Drifter and Lady Gaga’s Jo Calderone, to entire groups, such as XTC’s Dukes of the Straosphere. Actors dabbling in music have also had a long history, though often one that’s more of opportunism and dilettantism than actual craft. Luckily onn his debut as the nomadic Escape Tailor, actor Jeremy Sisto (Six Feet Under, Law & Order, Suburgatory) shows himself to be both a good storyteller (Tailor’s history includes fifteen years busking the streets Los Angeles) and a talented musician. His self-titled debut is led off by “Just Cuz,” sung in a voice whose emotional quality quietly supersedes Tailor’s fright wig and chalk makeup.
