Album Notes
Have you ever been hooked on the narrative of a conversation that you weren't supposed to hear? That is one of the things you might feel when listening to the music of singer/songwriter Joe Purdy. As he remembers an angry moment or a stolen kiss, his voice becomes startlingly intimate -- you can practically feel his breath on your ear. His sweet, folk- flavored melodies, coupled with the warm tones of an old Gibson guitar, are enough to make an audience blush.

Purdy's bluegrass roots show through on "StompinGrounds," the third independent release from the golden-voiced Arkansas native. Mandolin and banjo solos accent the likes of "Woman Go" and "Trouble," and good old-fashioned storytelling reigns throughout. But Purdy throws a few curveballs -- well-placed synthesizers on songs like "Rainy Day Lament" keep the sound fresh and closer to David Gray than Doc Watson. If you liked "Heartbreaker," you are bound to fall for "StompinGrounds."

Très bel album. J'adore le morceau "Catarina". Je regrette juste que cet album soit totalement introuvable en Europe, même par Internet.
Vraiment il faut l'écouter !


Purdy's c.d Stompin grounds is the best I've heard in years. Purdy's voice gives chills and has a mellow glow. Stompin grounds is my first c.d. though I'm looking forward to building my collection.

Each CD is so different and it just shows how versatile Joe Purdy is. I love all of his music and plan to order more from CDBaby.


Great Songs, lyrics, and music. I would like to see him come out with a higher end production. Great Artist, Great CD.


This is the most soothing CD you will ever hear. I love every song on here.. it will put you in a peaceful mood once you hear his voice and the soft music playing.

Top Five
This Cd has gone straight into my Top Five of all time and I have over 1000 Cds.It's another Heartbreaker(No.1).


As Mighty as the St. Lawrence
Stompin Grounds is simply beautiful! It's more then just music, its inspirational.. If you've ever found yourself at peace with a particular environment then you have felt something similar to Joe's music. Maybe its just The River. Maybe.


This cd is amazing...great singer-songwriter!
