To my incredible fans -- I could never thank you for all the love and support you’ve given over the years. Your encouragement has done so much for me, and I appreciate you all. It’s with great joy that I let you know that my upcoming album, Midnight Believer, is ready and that you have the opportunity to pre-order it, get some cool exclusive merch items, and participate in experiences not available anywhere else. I’ve put a lot of blood, sweat, and tears into recording and am so excited for you to finally hear what I’ve been busy working on.
I wrote all 10 of the songs with Greg Barnhill, whom I owe a lot to in regard to this project. I was experiencing something of a dry spell with writing, and I really did know if the fog would lift, but Greg saw through all of that, lit a new fuse, and before you knew it, the songs were literally coming faster than we could write them down. Sometimes you just need a little help from a friend.
Speaking of friends, I was so happy The Fairfield Four joined me on “Sunny Days” with their eternally soulful voices. Two truly amazing bands played with me on this record, which I believe represents very accurately the artist I am today. I love many different styles of music…but for me it all goes back to The Blues. Blue-Eyed Soul, Jazz, Rock n Roll and Country all have the same Daddy and that Daddy is The Blues. As long as it’s soulful, I’m in. Muddy Waters was right -- “The Blues had a baby and they called it Rock n Roll!”
It’s funny because most folks think of me primarily as a slide guitarist, and to some degree that is true, but I played ‘regular lead guitar’ long before I played slide. There is plenty of slide guitar on this record, but there is some ‘regular lead guitar’ work from me as well, including on the opening song, “Hours In Between.” What you’re hearing there is one continuous lead guitar track from me…one pass going down with my band and no fixes. I wanted to work on it more, but the band told me to leave it alone, so I did. Sometimes…in fact, quite often…that’s when the true feeling comes out…when you don’t mess with things too much. That’s a lesson learned in maturity, and only now do I feel like I’m truly hitting my stride…lifers don’t quit, you know. I believe Midnight Believer is the best work I’ve done to date. I hope you enjoy it!
