Introducing the new album Big Road, released on VizzTone/Juicy Juju Records! Our sophomore album highlights my diverse influences, from my roots in acoustic piedmont blues, to my electric side – slide guitar, boogie blues, funk and soul! BIG ROAD features ten songs – including four originals, and my own arrangements of songs by Mississippi Fred McDowell, Tommy Johnson, Mississippi John Hurt, Slim Harpo, and Randy Newman. I self-produced this album, and played all the guitars (there are a lot of guitars!), and it's got the energy of a live performance. Reports are already coming in that this album gets you dancing!
"Listening to your new cd – just knocked something over because I am boogying around!! LOVE IT!!!!!!!!"
