ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Alex Maryol has been impressing audiences for a number of years and he's just getting started. A native of Santa Fe, NM Maryol has been dubbed one of the most promising musicians and songwriters of the region.
Playing the guitar when he was only seven years old, Maryol began developing musical tastes when most kids learn to ride bikes. After listening to Chuck Berry, Fats Domino and Johnny Rivers with his dad, his appreciation for the blues took hold early in high school. He bacame a fan of the Rolling Stones and began studying roots musicians like Robert Johnson, R.L. Burnside and Stevie Ray Vaugh. "Really all modern music - rock, funk, all of it - can be traced back to the blues," Maryol says.
With exposure to the blues legends, Maryol set out to formulate songs and sounds which resonate with the high-energy electric blues rock. At 18, Maryol released his first CD, "They Call Me Lefty", and at 19, he was performing five nights-a-week at popular bars and clubs in the West. By the time he was 20, Maryol was part of the lineup at NM's famous Thirsty Ear Festival along with some of his personal heroes- Alvin Youngblood Hart, Corey Harris, Kenny Brown and Cedric Burnside.
As for the Telluride Blues and Brews Festival, Maryol is already a veteran. He played the main stage at the Blues & Brews fest in '02, '03 and '05 and performed nightly "Juke Joint" showcases in '02, '03, '04 and '05.
His second CD "Make Everything Alright" was released in June of 2003.
Maryol's live shows are "events". From the moment he takes the stage the audience is on there feet, dancing and well dancing. If you don't dance you will after seeing a live performance. Maryol Rocks while playing the Blues!

These cats cook! This CD is a real shocker.
Make Everything Alright, (11/12/03)
Let me tell you, these cats cook! This CD is a real shocker. You may get real purist in your attitude about young players in the Blues, but when you hear Alex Maryol do "God Don't Ever Change," by Blind Willie Johnson, you will lose that uppity stuff immediately. Maryol proves he has the feeling, attitude and sensibility that it takes to sing and play the Blues. You better like your music raucous 'cause that's what you're gonna get here. I can't think of a comparison except Walter Trout and the North Mississippi All Stars fighting it out. Maryol is the winner on this one. This is a striking bunch of music.

The band is Alex Maryol on guitars and vocals, Thomas "Blues" Uhde on harp, Jose Romero on bass, Michael Chavez on drums and Sarah K. on background vocals. This is a fine assemblage of musicians that know how to play it together. I especially liked Thomas Uhde on harp; this guy can play!

The opener, "Make Everything Alright," is a kicker, with some great lyrics and real swagger. This is an act opener for sure. "Driving" is truly relentless, with a raw, desperate urgency and deep, searching chord structures that drive a whole swirl of feeling. "Tonight" has great back up vocals that really add a Gospel feel to the tune. "Pins and Needles" just plain ROCKS! Maryol is making a big, big statement that is all about rockin' the Blues! The grooves just keep coming on "In The Ground." It's just a tag away from an R.L. Burnside's Mississippi hill country groove. "I Love You Baby" is a psychedelic dive based on basic Blues; the effect is startling and Maryol makes it work well. This CD taught me something and now I feel better, but purists, the Blues is changing and it's not a bad change. This CD is an example of where we are going.

"Changes" is the typical road introspection song. I like the conclusion - "Gotta love who I am and be happy that way." It's tough out there on the road, folks. "Annie Mae" comes down with some great guitar picking. A real stomper! This is very powerful stuff; so get ready for these young guns getting off!

"Penny In My Pocket" is some great picking on just the six-string; great lyrics and more real Blues. Young artists looking to learn how to write Blues songs can learn something here. This is a fine Blues album; it may be by some young cats, but believe me, they know what they're doing. Alex Maryol is a band to watch, they are full of the real stuff and they have it in them to do something great -- something great in the Blues!

This kid is great. He definitely has a handle on the blues.
I enjoyed Alex's blend of old school blues and modern blues.I believe he'll go along way with his music. Looking forward to his next CD.
