Talk Radio - This is my second studio release of new original music. Back in the day - we used to call them records … and I suppose you still can.
I give you fourteen pure, straight forward, no-frills songs - that blend American roots rock ‘n roll with strong influence of blues, country, folk, and soul. Every song is unique and stands on its own merit, but I am especially pleased with the title song – Talk Radio – along with Something Blue, The Solid Wall, and I Already Know.
I think this music captures the great sound of rock ‘n roll music so familiar to millions of us. The kind of songs with substance and harmony that used to be so prevalent – the kind of music that today it seems can only be found on adult alternative contemporary radio, or quality satellite and internet radio. The kind of music that by the 2000 had become almost fully replaced with utter mediocrity – and the truth is, none of us knows how or why it happened … but I digress …
The songs on Talk Radio are written from the heart with good, clean – even fun – lyrics, great harmony, a strong back beat, and catchy guitar phrases and chords … period !!!
When asked who I sound like – or what genre I fit into – people really have to stop and think because, of course, I don’t quite sound like anybody else.
It also may be interesting to note that I wrote and arranged every song, played all the instruments, and performed all the vocals, but as a fun diversion - I only give myself credit for lead guitar and vocals, and feature the fictional Otis Rimer on rhythm guitar, Sedge Warwick on bass, and Victor “Pants” Johnson on drums.
