If you’re on the wrong side and in the gravel you’re not too good and if you’re on the median strip that’s not too good either, so being in the middle of the road is the best place to be”, according to Eric. Eric Gales’ new album will be released on February 24, 2017.

Description:

In the tight-knit musical community of Austin, Texas, it’s tough to get away with posturing. You either bring it, or you don’t. If you do, word gets around. Praises are sung. And one day, you find yourself performing a duet with Bonnie Raitt in a documentary, or standing onstage with the Allman Brothers at New York’s Beacon Theater, trading verses with Susan Tedeschi. You might even wind up getting nominated for a Best Blues Album Grammy three times in a row. In addition to your six Female Artist of the Year/ Koko Taylor Blues Music Awards. For ”Joy Comes Back,” Foster wasn’t merely singing about love and loss; she was splitting a household and custody of her 5-year-old daughter. Music was her therapy. In the warm confines of Austin producer and former neighbor Daniel Barrett’s home studio, she found a comfort level she’d never before experienced while recording. It gave her the strength to pour the pain of her family’s fracture and the cautious hope of new love into 10 incredible tracks, nine of which are by a diverse array of writers from Mississippi John Hurt, Sean Staples and Grace Pettis, daughter of renowned folk singer Pierce Pettis, to Chris Stapleton and Black Sabbath. Yes, Black Sabbath; Foster re-imagines ”War Pigs” as a jam session with Son House. She also covers the Four Tops’ ”Loving You Is Sweeter Than Ever,” written by Ivy Jo Hunter and Stevie Wonder.

Description:

The very title The Front Porch Sessions suggests what Reverend Peyton’s Big Damn Band deliver on their sixth album: stripped-down, simple, down-home blues. Reverend Peyton began using the term “Front Porch Sessions” back in 2014, when he started posting live clips recorded on his front porch onto the internet, but this 2017 album was indeed cut in a studio: Farm Fresh in his native Indiana. It may have been made in a professional studio, but The Front Porch Sessions delivers on the intimacy and immediacy of its title, while also sounding very, very big. Almost of this lies on Reverend Peyton himself, who has a muscular howl that tends to overshadow the other two members of his big band, but that’s by design. The Big Band deliver a big sound by focusing on a down-and-gritty groove, a boogie that naturally comes to the forefront on the handful of instrumentals, but is also felt when Peyton is bellowing his lungs out. This palpable sense of soul, combined with a strong set of songs — there are a handful of standards, including Furry Lewis’ “When My Baby Left Me,” along with solid originals — elevates The Front Porch Sessions to the very top rank of the Reverend Peyton’s Big Damn Band albums. – AllMusic Review by Stephen Thomas Erlewine
