Album Notes
The guitar was not intended as an instrument that fulfilled only the role of melody in music. It is equipped, when played to it’s full potential, to hold three distinct functions, and at times, more. It provides bass, the rhythm accompaniment, and a lead melody, and even harmonies to that melody. It is a band for a musician who can't find like-minded people to play with, or who doesn't want to distort his musical vision with the influence of another.

My style is a combination of the many things I have listened to, learned from, and loved over the years. I wrote these songs in rather “authentic” Country Blues fashions. All the music, lyrics, and most importantly emotions are mine, but presented in a way that harkens back to the 1930s, as seen through my eyes and heard through my ears. I performed these songs as I would perform them live, but in this case in front of microphones. There are no recording tricks going on here. No autotune. I can say for certain because I recorded it all myself.

I have spent countless hours appreciating the company of the early bluesmen, listening and playing their songs. I suppose this record shows that. I am pleased to offer twelve original tracks that represent my longtime efforts. I’ll let the music explain what my words above cannot.

Cordially Yours,
Mark Galup
