Here’s a heads-up on three upcoming projects we’re excited about.
Good Thang, the new disc from The Soul of John Black, is just around the corner with a June 7 release. The album explores R&B, rock, pop, and electronica, but it’s all about love: JB’s love for classic soul and blues, love of driving old-school synth-funk bass, and, most important, love for his family. Check out a “first listen” preview track below.
Mary Flower is also in the studio recording a new album of her inimitable blend of acoustic blues, folk, and ragtime, which will be available in late summer. The session sees Mary joined by a series of duet collaborators in what is shaping up to be her most intimate recording yet.
And the Asylum Street Spankers’ swan song, a CD/DVD combo entitled The Last Laugh, is in the works for a fall release. Stay tuned for a near-future post with details of the Spankers’ finale extravaganza shows next month in Austin.
