A mix of Rockin' Blues and R&B - the music here has been described as 'sorta like Robben Ford meets Johnny Winter meets Jeff Beck' but with a bit more of an eclectic blend.
This CD is by veteran Canadian blues rocker Lou DeAdder and titled 'LouD' - a fitting moniker for a rockin' blues guitar picker. It contains 10 original songs - 2 are instrumentals. The music is a mix of blues, R&B, funk and a couple of country flavoured things. It was recorded at Central Studios in Oshawa, ON, Canada - produced by Lou DeAdder (LouD) and Brett Piekarz - one year in the making. The instrumentation and artists are: Lou DeAdder (guitar and vocals), Brett Piekarz (bass), Gary Craig (drums), Lance Anderson (keyboards), Leo Sullivan (tenor and baritone sax and flute), Bryden Baird (trumpet), and Frank Woodcock (background vocals and shakers).
Lou states: 'This is a return to my musical roots - after playing all the commercial crap on the planet for well over 30 years I am finally back where I belong - playing no holds barred take no prisoners guitar driven stuff. I hope you enjoy listening to the CD as much as I enjoyed making it. Thanks. LouD'
Track one (Beer Drinkin' Mama) is an uptempo blues rocker - lots of solos. Two (You Said) - a funky bump 'n grinder. Number three (Tell Me Bout Your Problem) is a solid blues rocker - tremendous drum tracks by Gary Craig. Four (Struttin') - a funky sort of instrumental - great horn arrangement by Leo Sullivan. Five (Dibs On You) is a swingy/shuffley sort of thing. Six (My Baby Blue) - funky, country, blues ballad. Track seven (Goin' Fishin') - blues but not a 12 bar - a little different. Eight (Burn Me Down) burns for about four minutes or so. Track nine (Space Cowboy) - instrumental with many scale choices to boggle the mind. Track ten (Ten Minutes) - rude funk and roll!!!
