"Imagine a southern night with hot, humid air and your paddlin' up to the shore of a moonlit swampy cove. With the frogs and other critters a yackin' just outside, you glide up to the misty lights of an old wooden bar. Then through the night air you hear a soulful down home band commencin' to rippin' it up, with songs dripping from a hillbilly soul. The beer a flowin', ladies a dancin' and cowboy boots a tappin', smiles on fire and you have the flavor of the music on Georgia Flyer."
“Georgia Flyer” is the creation of Perry Jordan, who was a founding member of the legendary band Heartsfield. Hearstfield released four albums on Mercury and Columbia Records back in the day and toured for 10 years straight doing 300 dates per year with everyone from Waylon & Willie to Eric Clapton.
Perry's song writing had the band working the Southern Rock/Country Rock circuit in it's heyday with all the big boys, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Charlie Daniels, Doobie Brothers, Marshall Tucker, Poco, Stephen Stills, and the list goes on and on. Heartsfield and the boys are still rippin' it up across the country with Little Feat, Commander Cody, Los Lobos, Trace Adkins, Asleep at the Wheel, Joe Walsh, Dickie Betts, and many more stars. With a total of 11 CD releases, the band is forging ahead building on it's legacy and taking it down the road. For more info visit www.heartsfield.com.
With songs full of Fiddle, Mandolin, Dobro, Piano, Washboard, Jaw Harp, Acoustic guitar, and Slide Guitars this CD is Perry Jordans' best writing yet and will take you on a trip down south to rockin' the way they do it down yonder. Combing all the above in a unique mixture of Americana, Southern Rock/Country Rock, and folk rock.
Harking back to his Savannah, GA heritage and mixing in some of that infamous Memphis groove, this CD is true Americana with songs that make you think, feel and get your butt a movin.' Jordan has always been known for his lyrical work with fans taking the songs and lyric he's written to heart and keeping them there for many a year. Stories that paint pictures of livin' in this crazy ole' world but always with an eye on making the best of it and leave you feeling positive in spite of it all.
Fans have told him the songs have saved marriages, helped them through many a rough time, and made them feel someone was there feeling the same things they do. Plus the songs can get any party or get together rockin' on.
Georgia Flyer has been in the works for a few years but came into being when Jordan finally got a 24 track state of the art studio at home, a career long dream. 95 % of the record was recorded in his special monogramed "Recording Pajamas" keeping the down home feel as real as possible. Many of his friends/players came on in and helped make the music come alive and soar including Tommy Grey Wolf, former Brooks & Dunn fiddler, bass man extraordinaire Bob Teske; old Heartsfield guitar wiz Phil Lucafo; local stars Melissa Rose’s sweet harmonies; Dave Nelson and Elmer Quiles spanking those slide guitars like the devil; and Scott Stevenson pounding the keys. The music is steeped in southern soul but make no mistake about it, with hot guitar pickin’ and a driving rhythm section, Georgia Flyer is a work of great vocals, great songs and a rockin' band.
So come on over to the general store, scoot past the two older fellers playing Checkers by the cracker barrel, grab an RC Cola and a Moon Pie and take home “Georgia Flyer.” YEEHAW !!
