“Can’t Say it Again” comes from Stew Culter’s fiery new album ‘The Blues From Another Angle.’
“‘Sing On’ was the very last song written and recorded for the album and as often happens it is the first single. The song is about what to do in the face of suffering.” – Jason Lee McKinney
“The title track and central theme of this EP is learning and knowing when to turn inside and rely on the passions that fuel you.” – Clay Melton
Blues-Rock Prodigy Clay Melton Ready to Release Powerful New EP ‘Back to Blue’
“I set out to write and arrange tunes that put my favorite styles of rock and blues front and center and possibly turn younger listeners onto the blues.” – Clay Melton
“I had always wanted to do an album of covers and when 2020 sort of derailed life it seemed like a good time to get creative in a new way. The tracks for this record reflect songs I have always loved regardless of how they ‘fit’ with what we do as a band.” – Jason McKinney
This is the third live release from The Weight Band, and for my money the absolute greatest. Stripped to its bare bones, roots music gets a proper hat tip (and wine toast) from a group that knows it best.
“The song represents a sentimental snapshot in time; reminiscent and longing.” – Jesse Brewster
“One of the basic principles of songwriting is ‘Write what you know.’ In the beginning, I was inspired by my own experiences. Over time, I branched out into telling other people’s stories, too.”
