I recently finished recording an album in the Oak Cliff neighborhood of Dallas with producer Stuart Sykes, who's made albums with Catpower, the White Stripes, and a lot of other great artists. I've been doing lots of solo acoustic shows lately and really enjoying them so I decided it was time to do an album that reflected the way I've been performing.....also, I wanted to challenge myself by recording solo with live vocal and guitar the way my heroes Robert Johnson, Mississippi John Hurt, and Jimmie Rodgers did, We brought in local legend Don Cento to play lead guitar with me on a couple of tracks, but other than that and a tasteful Waterphone overdub, its all recorded "old school". I wrote 10 new songs for the album that reflect my travels as a touring artist, my home in Mississippi and my favorite big city, New Orleans. I'm going to self release the record on my own label....I've paid for the recording, now I need some funds for mastering and manufacturing.
