Bristolian Eddie Martin has long been one of the most popular and respected musicians on the British blues scene – he’s an all-round bluesman, being a highly skilled acoustic performer and also equally at home fronting an electric trio or a big band, as here on “Looking Forward Looking Back” – a fine album of his own songs and one co-write, that he dedicates to legendary electric bluesmen and band leaders T-Bone Walker, Johnny ‘Guitar’ Watson and Elmore James.He moved the whole band into a Bristol dance hall, Patchway Labour Club, to record live to tape on vintage and also state of the art equipment and the result is a joy from start to finish! Martin himself contributes lead vocals, guitar, piano and harmonica; with the rest of the band being John Paul Gard (organ and bass pedals), Richard Laws (drums) and the crack Little Big Horns featuring Patsy Gamble (baritone and tenor saxophone), Steve Trigg (trumpet), Andy Gilliams (trombone) and Julie Kimber (tenor saxophone) . . . with also the legendary Pee Wee Ellis contributing a co-write and several tenor saxophone solos.
A staple in Texas for over a decade, Aaron Watson has expanded into a national touring force on the backs of his past two releases. His new record Real Good Time looks to further solidify his place on the national stage, packing honky tonks, rodeos, fairs and beyond no matter what state he’s in. A collection of fourteen new songs as well as four rec-recorded classics make for an exceptional eighteen track collection that is sure to be well-loved by existing Watson fans and beyond. This album is true to its title and then some. Real Good Time features prominent guests including PBR champion Justin McBride, Elizabeth Cook, Pat Green, Josh Abbott, Kevin Fowler, John Anderson and Willie Nelson.
New album from the veteran singer, songwriter and producer. No Man s Land is his ninth solo outing, and his first vocal recording in 12 years. The album, which began its gestation over a three-day break between other productions, is the culmination of a lifetime of making music. ”For anyone with the desire to, I wanted this record to be the kind you could really get lost in. It s filled with the sonic imprint of an era past: the sound of American musicians who worked hard to make a life, make a new kind of music, make a nation.” He continues ”There s pedal steel meets a horn section, there s too much drinkin and thinkin , fiddles wail, there s a kiss like a peach, and of course, there s the usual waiting on the voice of the Lord.” Peacock recorded No Man s Land at his home studio, The Art House, a restored hundred-year-old church in Nashville, Tennessee.
“Heavy and heartfelt country’n’strychnine from this hard-touring Chicago quartet. Closer to Neil and Graham than Lefty and George, Souled American specializes in low-key grooves that gurgle and bounce with songwriter Joe Adducci’s reggae-style lead bass, Jamey Barnard’s slapping New Orleans-style drums and Scott Tuma’s shimmering rhythm guitar, which sounds like pedal steel but isn’t.
