ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
New Orleans--

I Tell You What is starting 2007 off with the release of What Would You Do?, The 17 song record was recorded in early 2006 and released January 23rd 2007.

Warm soulful vocals, clever honest lyrics, original song-writing, and ferocious improvisational episodes are the foundation of I Tell You What’s debut, What Would You Do? A bluesy, rocking album, What Would You Do? will make blues fans blue, rockers rock, and hipsters hip. What Would You Do? serves so many great tastes and they taste great together!


I Tell You What covers a wide range of styles, from blues and jazz to rock and folk, even soul and punk. Singer/songwriter/guitar instigant Adam Crochet absorbed the rich musical scene of New Orleans, incorporating it into his music, which is basically blues, but is actually very wide-ranging. He's not only a great lead guitarist with a style that is at once original and familiar, but also a very good singer-songwriter, who writes great lyrics and songs that could stand up in an acoustic setting. Crochet draws on influences including Peter Green’s psychedelic blues, Snooks Eaglin’s guitar rumbas and Jimi Hendrix’s combination of song craft and improvisational explosiveness.

With beautifully spare production, What Would You Do? is fronted by Crochet’s recognizable vocals and guitar playing. Of 17 tracks, Crochet wrote 16 (with track 12 penned by Bill Richards) all of which highlight his aggressive tendencies as a songwriter and soloist. Crochet is able to combine the sophisticated absurdity of Steve Martin with the boldness of Stevie Ray Vaughn. All while creating a loosely produced, song-filled rock album appealing to indie, folk, jam band, rock, soul and blues fans alike.

Simply, I Tell You What’s What Would You Do? takes you to an innocent time in New Orleans when a man, contemplating his life and his place in the world, just can’t put answers to all of his questions.

Here is an album that hides the wit, but has plenty of it. This is the sort of album that reveals itself to you again and again as you become more familiar with it. Every song is a gem. This is I Tell You What from New Orleans, LA.

I Tell You What-- this is the shit right here!
I found this CD through a friend who helped build Habitat for Humanity houses with the singer for this band. Long story short, I listened to it and next thing you know I've got tickets to the to the Big Easy for the fall. Awesome band! Awesome songs! Great vibe!

The blues ladies and gentlemen.
I saw this band when I was in New Orleans recently and they rocked so hard. My favorites on the record are the ballads. Tracks 2, 71 15 are all incredible. Adam Crochet is a great songwriter. Especially the lyrics to Alabama Jail. I just wish they had the lyrics on the website.

Mark Green

I guess that's why the call it the blues
This is a great CD. To me the sound is like a loose SRV playing psychadelic rock with no effects. I gave it 4 stars because I am a drummer and I think the fidelity on the drum tracks could have been better. But then again maybe I'm just jealous ;-)

Mary Malone

Rebuild New Orleans
This is why we have to rebuild New Orleans people. There is a feeling in the music there that you can't find anywhere else. So laid back. Even on a freakout rock-fest like the track Monster, they sound relaxed. That's why I love it. And plese visit levees.org and help bring New Orleans back


Yeah you right
On time & in line!!!
ya heard me?
