ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
HISTORY

We derive our collective name, The Brains Behind Pa, from a Bob Dylan song, and as a band we accord his songs a central place in our repertoire. We're not a Dylan "tribute" band, but we find a powerful resonance in Dylan's songs, and in those of the artists he influenced. We're also partial to the singer/songwriters of an earlier generation, such as Woody Guthrie, who influenced Dylan.

We're out to explore the great expansive range of American song - back to a time before songs had identifiable authors, but developed as they were passed along - and forward to rock & roll. Along the way we delve into the raw blues of Robert Johnson, the rockabilly of Carl Perkins, folk, and even bluegrass.

The common thread running through the music we play is a preference for honest songs rooted in traditional styles, always true, never slick. We're drawn to songs with feeling, meaning, and heart. Put another way, we're a song-driven band, not one coasting along on attitude or hitched to a trend.


BIOS
The Brains Behind Pa is Gordon Bonham (lead guitar, vocals), Bill Price (vocals, guitar, harmonica), Garry Bole (keyboards, accordion, mandolin), Jeff Stone (bass), Jeff Chapin (drums).

Gordon Bonham is a well-known and respected bluesman in the midwest. The Gordon Bonham Blues Band has opened shows for national blues acts such as Koko Taylor and B.B. King. Gordon has backed other blues legends Yank Rachell, Jimmy Walker, Bo Diddley and Matt "Guitar" Murphy.

Bill Price is a singer/songwriter and guitarist.

Garry Bole is an accomplished player of several instruments, including piano, mandolin, accordion and guitar. He plays with several bands in the Indiana area.

Jeff Stone and Jeff Chapin round out the electric configuration of The Brains Behind Pa.

OLD HAT
Old Hat presents the band in its acoustic trio configuration (with help from Jeff Chapin on two songs).

We recorded seven songs - most of them are traditional. The songs we chose are ones that we've always loved and have always wanted to record. We tried to give them our own "unique" interpretation. Total running time is about 35 minutes. OLD HAT is like a sampler or "ep" and is priced accordingly.

Bill Price: Vocals, Acoustic Guitar, Mandolin, Harmonica
Garry Bole: Mandolin, Accordion, Vocals
