The Doctor’s Blues & Roots Prescription October 8, 2011
Here’s an update on what I’ve been up to ….
I have been spending my time recently recording my new CD called “House Call”. Being a good “Doctor of the Blues” I figured it was time to make a House Call !!! House Call is another all-acoustic Neo-Delta Blues & Roots offering featuring more original material and a few select classic blues covers done Marshall Lawrence style.
Russell Jackson (former B.B. King bassist) is on stand-up acoustic bass with me again on this one. I have, however, changed harmonica players for this project. On “House Call”, I have David Hoerl (member of The Twisters and nominated numerous times for “Harmonica Player of the Year” by the Toronto Blues Society’s “Maple Blues Awards”) blowing harp. I also have a surprise guest on House Call !!! That session was a dream come true and a career highlight for me !!! More on that later. House Call is my “BEST” and bluesy-est project yet. I’m very excited about House Call.
I am pulling out all the stops to raise the cash to get my new CD released. House Call will be released Spring/Summer 2012.
P.S…. “Blues Intervention” received KILLER reviews in Living Blues Magazine and in Rootstime Magazine. Here are some quotes:
“…Few artists can match Marshall Lawrence’s solo acoustic presentation… A gifted translation of Delta blues expression… Blues Intervention should cement Lawrence’s reputation as a neo-Delta visionary…” ~ Living Blues
“… Marshall belongs to the group of artists such as Taj Mahal, Roy Bookbinder and Corey Harris who just like Marshall knows how to put new life into the old traditional Delta Blues style with an injection of raw energy and boundless enthusiasm …” ~ Rootstime
