Hadden Sayers – Rolling Soul (2013)

Posted by on February 27, 2013 with No Commentsas

HSin City Soul and Blues Festival artist Ruthie Foster can be credited with bringing Hadden Sayers out of retirement. Sayers, a successful musician in the Houston area with a lot of promise, was burnt out on the music scene after a string of deals gone bad and the overall erosion of the business. After much soul searching, some unlikely friendships and inspirations along with a call from Foster found the bluesman back writing songs. Sayers and Foster shared a love of blues, Tejano, country, soul, gospel, and reggae music and he found himself in Foster’s touring band. In 2011 Sayers released his first album in many years, Hard Dollar, to rave reviews. The buzz was back, as Sayers was nominated in 2012 for Best Song at the Blues Music Awards. That song “Back to the Blues”, a duet and co-write with Foster, soulfully announced his return. Hadden will follow up Hard Dollar with Rolling Soul on February 26th, 2013. Early reviews are hailing it successful follow with much focus on Sayers strong songwriting.

Benoit Pioulard – Hymnal (2013)

Posted by on February 27, 2013 with No Commentsas

The overlapping layers of symbology on Benoit Pioulard’s latest disc, Hymnal, shroud everything in an Earl Grey mystic fog. First, though the project title scans as a name, it’s a nom de guerre for American-born London resident Thomas Meluch. Though retained as signposts more than religious initiations, the disc is filled with Catholic ritual references. […]
