A few words about the new album…
I wanted to get back to the basics, to the beginning. Traveling through the deep south and seeing the landscape and the poverty has an impact on you. Growing up in Fort Worth Texas does too. I became taken by the sounds of the John Lee Hooker, Muddy Waters, Robert Johnson, and Ralph Stanley. Haunting sounds, sometimes just a guitar and a foot stomping were all that were on some of those tracks. I’ve played the huge venues and recorded the huge anthems, and there is a place for that, but I wanted to strip it all down. I didn’t want to make the same old blues/country album you’ve heard a million times. I wanted to take those old sounds and do something new. I took a board and built a foot pedal I could stomp on while I play solo. That’s the “thumper” you hear on all the tracks where there is percussion. There were no computer enhancements of any kind. All the mistakes and imperfections are there. Hopefully you will hear real, raw, American music. ~Devin Leigh
