Rock songs crafted to bring out the melodic voice and soul inherent in the electric guitar/
I've been working on this instrumental album for the last two years. I just kept picking it up and putting it down while working on other albums. It's challenging to create interesting instrumental rock songs where the balance of the composition is never compromised. Creating songs that work as instrumentals is just not easy. I was waiting for the right inspiration. Slowly but surely the pieces fell into place and I had a number of compositions that I was quite proud of. I feel that this album features some of my best guitar playing because I found emotions deep within that I could pull up without stepping all over the song. The feel of these songs is sometimes soulful and melancholy with a few places to step out with Stratocaster-styled showmanship. I wanted to create songs that improve with each listen, that also have a strong sense of melody.

Sink Or Swim, … is the brand new collection of guitar riddled blues rock music. These albums have been in the works for the last 18 months. So many songs written, over a hundred… and this is the cream of the crop. Classic blues rock treachery updated by thoughtful lyrics and punchy guitar. This is a work in four parts, by me: Gary Eisenbraun (singer / songwriter / guitar player / assorted mayhem maker). Rock and roll. Enjoy.

Thorsten Naslund, aka Totta, has been the lead singer in an excellent Swedish Blues Rock band since 1970. The band led the way for a Scandinavian Blues scene, and had made several records of classic and obscure American Blues songs by the time Spencer Bohren met them at a Blues Festival in Florida in 1983. Totta’s Bluesband was a major factor in spreading Spencer’s music to audiences in Europe, and this record is a direct result of cherished friendships and musical camaraderie.
Most of the songs were written by Spencer, but the recording sessions took place in Goteborg, Sweden in during the summer of 1989. The album made the Swedish Top 40, and yielded two popular radio hits in the fall of the same year. This record may still be available in Sweden or Norway, but it has never been released in the USA. Amazingly, the album contains songs by Rolling Stone Ron Wood and John Fogerty, neither of which are recorded by the artists themselves.

Delta Roux from Austin, Texas consists of Harry Bodine (guitars) and Mike Milligan (vocals, percussion). Backed by some of Austin’s top bass players and drummers, their CD, “Bad Wind Blowin'” was a strong debut on which some of the most crackling original blues/roots styles merged. Delta blues, New Orleans funk, Louisiana swamp blues and Memphis Deep Soul are all part of the Delta Roux gumbo.
Harry Bodine quit high school to move down South. In Austin, Texas, Harry made a name for himself as an expert on slide guitar. This was also where he met singer and percussion player Mike Milligan, a native Texan and Austin resident with a couple of years on club stages from San Antonio to Seattle as part of his resume. Mike is a very versatile interpreter with a lot of blues feeling, switching between the rougher style of his idol Otis Redding and the more elegant ways of soul/blues singers like Z.Z. Hill or Junior Medlow. With their soul band Memphis Train the duo Bodine/Milligan tested this new found collaboration on many Texas stages.
In 2002 they released their second CD, “Only A Fool.” With the drum slot now filled by Matt Ryan, the music of Delta Roux took a giant leap in to the boiling pot of gumbo goodness.

The Axxmann & Friends - No Fancy Cover

 8. Swang That Thang - 4:23
 9. The Storm - 4:49
10. When the Wolf Barks at the Moon - 3:11

Actually there is no cover at all for Matt “The Axxmann” MacDermaid’s latest CD. Seeing as the CD case photo supposedly shows The Axxmann trekking through the snowy woods of his home state of Michigan, perhaps his moniker refers to him maybe being a lumberjack as the guitar playing here is mostly unstructured shredding or wah-wah meanderings with only an occasional arranged solo. It isn’t specified if he sings any of the songs, as there are seven other vocalists listed without specifying who sings on which track. The nine band written originals are for the most part pretty tame featuring soul less vocals, except in the case of the three songs that feature female vocalists. In a few they sing about the blues, but there isn’t much in the way of blues songs here per se, save one cover and two originals. A nice boogie beat infuses “The Renegade”, a modern day outlaw song featuring soulful organ by Robert John Manzitti. Otherwise the delivery doesn’t ring true. “If I can’t sing the blues in heaven, there ain’t no place for me” is a line in “Ain’t No Blues In Heaven”. No place for you, because you don’t even sing them here in this song. Although Bob Tarinelli contributes some great blues harp, it’s a song about the blues, not a blues song. So far no lead guitar to speak of. On the tribute to the late Irish blues-rock guitar icon Gary Moore “No Moore Blues” we finally get some guitar soloing, mostly of the shredding variety. The female vocal is very soulful along with more great organ playing. The first blues song is a cover of Jesse Mae Robison’s “Sneakin’ Around” that features some good blues guitar. “My Baby’s Town” is a heavy blues song. Back to twiddling, shredding, directionless wah-wah and string bending on “Life’s Not What You Make Of It”. Some nice soaring guitar riffing lifts the plaintive female vocal on the strong effort of “The Storm”. Well ok, I guess “The Wolf Barks At the Moon” qualifies as a blues. Wish there was more in the way of good blues guitar elsewhere, as there is in this song and a few others. The gruff male vocal on this one is effective.
Good guitar playing on a handful of songs here doesn’t justify “The Axxmann” title, but his heart is in the right place and this CD surely has some good moments. The three songs featuring vocals by the ladies are well worth your time. Less hokey lyrics and more in the way of better arranged guitar solos would be welcome the next time around.

The Kenny Wayne Shepherd Band have announced the release of their new album Lay It On Down. The album is the follow-up to 2014's Goin' Home, and will be released on July 21. The album was written in Nashville and recorded at Echophone Studios in Shreveport, Louisiana.
"We’re still breaking new ground, not just repeating ourselves,” says Sherpherd. “Every album is representative of the things that are going on with me right now. Every album is another page in the book.”This album is somewhat of a window into my soul. But it’s also a window into my observations. Hard Lesson Learned, that’s a painful song. It’s a guy who falls madly in love with this woman, and she’s just bad news for him. Baby Got Gone, that’s just about this whimsical girl. The guy is kind of infatuated with her. She’s beautiful, she’s fun to be around, but she can’t stay in one place too long. She’s just kinda beyond commitment, a free spirit."
"Lay It On Down is written about people I know that carry a burden in life and don’t feel they’re good enough," says Shepherd. "It’s about the beauty you see in someone that they can’t see in themselves. That can be sad to me sometimes, and I always want to let that person know. Your mother. Your daughter. Your son. Your wife. At some point in life, we all feel that we’re not good enough. So that album title – Lay It On Down – you can interpret in a couple of different ways. It could be about letting go of life’s struggles and not trying to carry the load by yourself. Or it could be like when a band is really cooking and really doing what they do best and laying it down.
“Every song is on there to tell a good story. And I think if you listen to the album in its entirety, each song takes you on a different journey."
Lay It On Down is released on July 21.
