CD: Acousticland Lady
Many artists make good and often killer blues records, either choosing to record in a modern electric style or in a traditional acoustic style. I wanted to record a blues-based album utilizing acoustic instruments played both traditionally and with an electric intensity. The acoustic guitar has for centuries alluded to the ideal woman; resplendent with soft shoulders, sensual curves, and when she's handled properly, the most glorious sounds emanate. This is the Acousticland Lady.
Along with my bandmates, the friendly and funky Steve Calabria on bass, and the sturdy and steady Scott Turner on drums and percussion, I wanted my friend and colossal talent Michael Hill, to guest with us on this project. Michael is one of the most refreshing bluesmen working today, and he plays with such originality and conviction that I knew I wanted to record with him someday.
We believe that it's necessary to simultaneously respect the past while looking towards the future when making music. We hope you enjoy this album. We surely enjoyed making it. Thanks for looking and listening!
