"Higher Ground", the amazing fourth studio disc from bad-ass Dallas blues/rock axeripper Lance Lopez featuring 11 killer tracks (64 minutes) of brain-damaging, intense, powerful, funky, soul-powered, bluesy, retro-70's Hendrix-inspired heavy guitar power trio rock that will trip your brain hard. An outstanding, bona-fide, supreme heavy guitar monster from start to finish.
Lance Lopez is a ::one man rock machine:: hell-bent on keeping REAL "guitar rock" music alive. Forget what your mother says, "guitar rock" ain’t dead thanks to our good musical brother, Lance Lopez. On "Higher Ground" (his third disc for GROOVEYARD RECORDS, an indie label dedicated to outstanding TOTAL GUITAR music), L.L makes his mark and hits true legendary guitar hero status with his bad-ass riffage and mind-blowing over-the-top powerhouse lead guitar assault on the supremely brilliant "Higher Ground" disc. Lance takes his guitar rite over the edge and beyond. He also has an amazing, powerful, whiskey-soaked soulful voice that is the perfect match for his tough, bad-ass heavy guitar riffage. Lance Lopez lives the Blues and you can feel his pain deep in the grooves on the "Higher Ground" disc. His style and intensity is definitely something that has been lacking in mainstream blues/rock music since the eighties when S.R.V. showed us what it was all about. "Higher Ground" is a super-sonic way-kool brain-damaging heavy guitar musical document and excellent follow-up to his two previous killer beyond belief Grooveyard discs.
"Higher Ground" is a mega-awesome bluesy heavy guitar ripper that is HIGHLY recommended to fans of HENDRIX (long live the musical spirit of JIMI), FRANK MARINO, ROBIN TROWER, ERIC GALES, KING'S X, S.R.V., DOYLE BRAMHALL, EDDIE HAZEL, LENNY KRAVITZ (imagine Lenny Kravitz meets Hendrix!!!), STEVIE SALAS, RICHIE KOTZEN, JOE BONAMASSA, (early vintage) ZZ TOP, INDIGENOUS, CRAIG ERICKSON, BUDDAHEADS, SKY HIGH & CLAS YNGSTROM, WES JEANS, KAMCHATKA and just about any other killer get-down rippin' blues/rock axeslingers you have ever heard. Fans of his two previous killer Grooveyard discs "Wall of Soul" & "Simplify Your Vision" will "get off hard" on the phenomenal "Higher Ground" disc. Lance Lopez is the "real" deal and he's definitely right up there with the best of them. No blues/rock heavy guitar c.d. collection is complete without this phat, phunky power trio riff monster. As an added bonus, Texas blues/rock axeslinger Wes Jeans guests and jams on some good ole’ down-home texas blues with brother LL on the “Higher Ground” disc.
On "Higher Ground" the blues rock "harder", the funk grooves "deeper", the stripper rock is more "tricktafied" and there is something for everyone on this amazingly kool new heavy guitar disc. Dig in deep people, it’s time to "Simplify Your Vision" & reach for your "Higher Ground" with brother Lance Lopez and take a "bluesadelic funk rock for the soul" musical ride that will peel the paint from your "Wall of Soul", trip your brain hard and rock your world into the deep, bluesy outskirts of infinity.
