ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The critically acclaimed 13-song solo album from Phil Gammage.

“…a great/pleasant surprise. Adventures In Bluesland is not so much an adventure but a pleasurable listening trip.”
Popdose (USA)

“Gammage has delivered an album that is an infectious, perfectly paced and varied exploration of the most American of musical forms. It captures a band that sounds like they’ve been playing in smoke-filled basement joints since the age of the Beats.”
Bucketful of Brains (U.K.)

"Phil Gammage no ordinary copycat , but an artist with a unique sound, vision, and musical message."
Keys and Chords (Holland)

"I am discussing Phil Gammage’s sweeping modern blues and rock album, which owes so much to everyone one from Presley to Leadbelly but sound not quite like any of them ….it is really about Phil’s wonderful singing; the man seems to have stepped out of 1957 and yet not. He is a one man million dollar quartet and this is an adventure not to be missed."
Rock NYC Live and Recorded

"…Phil Gammage presents a broad mix of self penned songs and a number of cover versions of blues classics and folk traditionals. His interpretations are special and very much personalized and they demonstrate his ability to convert such classics into his own songs.”
Rootstime (Belgium)

“A new album by Phil Gammage is always cause for celebration and Adventures In Bluesland is no exception… a great slice of smoldering blues that occasionally rock just a little bit”
Whisperinandhollerin (U.K.)


Phil Gammage draws his musical inspiration from many sources of “roots” music, but in particular it is the most American musical form of all — the blues (which is the true essence of man and womankind) that defines this new collection of songs. Phil deconstructs blues music and then reassembles it with a unique sensibility toward the human condition. The result is a music that is sometimes raucous, sometimes creepy/moody, and always grooving. This collection features several new Gammage compositions, as well his unique versions of traditional songs. Unlike many of the new breed of blues-inspired musicians, Phil pays tribute to, but doesn’t copy the form. It’s a happening and unique sound and no one else plays it like he does. As the album title Adventures in Bluesland describes, it truly is an adventure exploring the blues.
