A few months after she left me my trailer that I tour with got stolen with over 50,000 worth of gear in it. Insurance did not cover any of it. After this I got deathly ill and was in the Hospital. This CD release are my thoughts about the Poison Girl I was with.
Give me a light is a song that talks about this love being sick and wrong like a drug adict wanting another hit. You know it's not good for you but this love has made you sick.
Let Her Ride is how the girl was like a wild horse who always wanted to run. She was not happy being in a nice stable taken care of by someone who loved her. She needed me to let her ride.
Ingram House is where this dark day took place. You can hear the pain in my voice because I sang it when I was having the hurt pounding my chest.
silent Prayer says it all. I started playing this to heal my soul one night and pushed the record button.
After 2 1/2 years I have finaly fallen in love again and she has made me Weightless track 9.
For a few dollars you get to basically read 2 years worth of my personal journal. The songs are expressions of what I went through.
The style is written in a progressive blues. However his is not your traditional blues. To me the blues is not a genre ... its a lifestyle. I love the blues to much to leave it this way. It needs to move forward and progress to the next generation. Think Nineinch Nails & Radiohead with late 60's British Blues Rock Influence.
I realize this might not appeal to the blues purist but it's time for some musical mayhem in the blues scene especially in the Northwest. I love the blues just the way it is but to much to leave it this way. There is nothing wrong with tradition ... that is where we start but Robert Johnson was progressive, Eric Clapton, Led Zeppelin, Jimi Hendrix and SRV.
If it stays still the style will go rotten and no one will want to eat of its fruit anymore.
