Album Notes
TOM DEWS, Georgia-born singer/songwriter/bluesman, surrounds gritty vocals with deft acoustic guitar and haunting harmonica to provide a satisfying foray down the back roads of literate folk/blues. Collected on this, his third CD (DRIVING DREAMS), are songs of loss and regret, blues to soothe, and anthems of hope. Born in south Georgia near the Chattahoochee River, and growing up near there and in central Florida, he had time to soak up real roots sounds and rhythms. He internalized that terrain and it has been for him a solid foundation to explore elsewhere, and he counts among his influences Mose Allison, Lyle Lovett, J.J. Walker, Delbert McClinton, Pierce Pettis, Keb Mo and Tom Kimmel. You’ll hear him in his familiar mode here doing the simultaneous guitar/harp thing in an inimitable way, but there are also two piano solo pieces and several National Resophonic instrumentals. Dews worked through the songwriting schools of Steve Key and Tom Kimmel, and his writing reflects it. Hear the songs.
