“Roadhouse For Sale” by SlingBlade: East Coast Ambassadors of the “Roadhouse” sound.
SlingBlade’s "Roadhouse For Sale" is the sophomore release from this four-piece Virginia band and it is smokin'! Great song writing, monster pickin' and meticulous production will make this a must-have for all Roadhouse music fans.
Like the band's first release, "100% Certified Roadhouse Music", this new CD features 12 original songs and, once again, SlingBlade’s genre-bending style is not easily pigeonholed. What would you call it? Americana (on steroids)? Alt. Country? Insurgent Country? Roots Rock? It is some of all and yet so much more that SlingBlade has created the “Roadhouse” genre just to identify this sound. It is guitar-based music with a drum-heavy back beat incorporating influences of Rock, Blues, Country and Bluegrass. SlingBlade thinks you are going to love it!
SlingBlade's members have logged many years in the music business playing all sorts of music, and have spent the last six years together performing and recording. They have been influenced, in part, by the Austin, Texas music scene and by artists such as Steve Earle, Joe Ely, Guy Clark, Webb Wilder, Robert Earl Keen, Billy Joe Shaver, Delbert McClinton, Stevie Ray Vaughn and The Allman Brothers.
David Eakin - guitar, harmonica, mandolin, vocals
Jeremy Leadbetter - guitar, harmonica, mandolin, resophonic guitar, vocals
Rexx Rexrode - bass guitar and vocals
Lance Foster - drums, vocals
The boys are eager for you to hear how the band's longevity has paid off in the studio and are very excited about the engineering, production, equipment and song-writing on this second release. Rexx and Dave do most of the core song writing, and the other band members contribute to the final, musical product. And, SlingBlade enjoys the luxury of having both an in-house recording engineer and a graphic artist. Their stellar guitar player, Jeremy, is part owner of a recording studio and Lance, Master of all Percussion, is an accomplished graphic designer. Jeremy mixed and mastered this CD and Lance handled the cover art and disc design.
