Absolution - Dusty Road
Dusty Road is het tweede studio album van de band uit Engeland.
Op het album horen we onvervalste power blues rock.
Natuurlijk kunnen we vergelijkingen maken met bands als ZZ Top en Cream. Echter dan doen we de heren tekort , de band heeft echt een prettig eigen geluid.
We horen een mix van klassieke rock en onvervalste blues.
De zang en het gitaarwerk van Joe Fawcett zijn van hoog niveau. Voeg hierbij de basgitaar van Andy Palmer en het drumwerk van Doug Lang toe en de oplettende lezer weet genoeg.
Dit is een heerlijke band die met Dusty Road een erg knap album heeft gemaakt. Deze band verdient het gehoord te worden.
Mocht je in de gelegenheid zijn de band live te kunnen aanschouwen aarzel dan zeker niet.
How has the reaction to your latest CD been?
Great, it has been really well received and has been picking us up new followers worldwide. It's a record we're really proud of, but the new record that we are currently working on will be even better!"
Who are your musical and non-musical influences?
All sorts! Musically, Hendrix, Clapton, Jack Bruce especially, Vince Gill, the list goes on...! Non-musical? I've never been asked that one before! I'm a massive Football/Newcastle United fan, so when I was younger I would probably have said Alan Shearer, but now I'll probably stick with the safer option of my family!"
What inspires you to do what you do?
"The fact that when we release an album or a song, someone many thousands of miles away who we haven't, nor may ever meet can connect with us and what we have created, which I still think is a pretty cool thing!"
What was the first LP/tape/CD you bought with your own money?
"A child of the 90's so the first album was 'What's The Story (Morning Glory)?' by Oasis. Still a great record!
What has been your most memorable moment in your music career so far?
"Making a record and seeing it on the shelves of record stores I used to visit as a kid!"
What embarrassing songs might I find on your MP3 player?
"I teach, so it's quite varied! I think there's some Take That on there somewhere, but mostly it's all good!"
What does the next 6 months look like for you?
We're coming across to Holland in August to play the Culemborg Blues Festival on the 22nd. That is a show that we are really looking forward to! Some more UK dates and finishing off then hopefully releasing studio album number 3. We have just signed to Amsterdam Music Promotors to look after us for bookings in Europe so there should be more dates on the continent. We are already booked to come to Belgium in December. So, pretty busy really. Just how we like it!!"
What can people expect to see at your live performances?
"We like to put on a show. It's a real Rock & Blues show. 100mph from the first note! We play a lot of material from the studio records, but also classic covers given our own unique touch! We aim for no one to leave the show disappointed!"
