Old Pirate's Treasures
OLD PIRATE’S TREASURES
From Key West, Florida, famous for Margaritas and Sunset parties, comes a new sound from Songwriter/Singer Sir C.W. Colt Pirate Treasures is a series of original music releases in the spirit of the newest recognized American musical art form called “True Americana Music:” this music is what we live in our day-to-day lives.”
On each release C.W. Colt teams with musicians recognized for their performances with America’s best known recording artists, the “treasures” of the industry, creating a “musician’s musicians’ band.”
On each release the cover art expands the theme with legendary, and at times controversial, characters such as Key West Treasure hunter Mel Fisher and Capt. Tony, adventurer and Mayor of Key West from the first CD Legends and Treasures.
In “the Keys” where many Souls go to “drop out”, following a “Buffett and booze” lifestyle, C.W. Colt has achieved a cult-like following as chronicler of the human experience. Struggle, heartbreak, survival, love and success are the subjects of his music. It is all rendered believable and honest with his gritty, time-polished vocals, which dip occasionally into a deep, heart shaking bass.
From his early years, traveling from Montana to Mexico–California to Key West, playing in bars and anywhere someone would listen, talented and interesting people were drawn to him. These Legends and Treasures inspire his music and combine to celebrate the magic and love of everyday life.
Old Pirates Treasures is the second CD of the Legends and Treasures series. It is filled with Love and the spirit of Magical sounds created from the heart. “That is what all my music is about”. While recording, C.W. inspired the musicians to "play from the heart." Consequently, the sounds you hear are not from tedious rehearsal but are spontaneous from their heart and soul.
The cover art features James Billie, the longtime leader of the Florida Seminole Tribe and wildlife specialist Rey Becceras with artwork by Apache Indian Remy Cabrera. The poignancy of Cabrera’s art is fully
understood when you learn how he grew up on a reservation and barbed wire was the symbol of his confinement. Then Love brought him to his knees and a barbed wire heart became proof of the pain of love as
well as his badge of courage.
When asked how Old Pirates Treasures became such a unique representation of True Americana Music, C.W. smiles and tells us, “Well, here is the ‘recipe’ for ‘True Americana Music’”.
First you take songs by Singer/Songwriter Sir C. W. Colt and add Capt Fiddlin Red on Lead Guitar, Mandolin and back up vocals. Then you blend in Steve Super on Super Bass and back-up vocals. Stir in the Calypso sounds of Sir Cedrick Luces on the Steel Pans. Then you mix in today's New Blues with 11-year-old Little Boy Flowers on Piano. Add a taste of Flute and Sax with Marty Stonely. Stir it up with the reeling, mystic riffs of Fingers Taylor on Harmonica. Sprinkle in a little Jazz Drums with Roger Van Zant. Finally, add some extra hot spice with Mauricio Barroso on Latin Conga, Percussion and the African Bata. When all this is recorded, Mixed and Mastered by Dan and Melody at Private Ear Studio You have the ‘Heart’ of “True American Music’.
