Knick Knack Records is proud to announce the release of GravelRoad’s fifth studio album on December 9th (advance copies available now) and we wanted you to be among the first to check it out. The album was engineered by Brian Nelson at Elliot Bay Recording Co and was mixed by Jack Endino at Soundhouse. Rick Fisher did the mastering at RFI. It features two guest vocalists, Andrew Chapman (Princess, The Keeper) on DD Amin, and Lisa Kekaula (The Bellrays, Lisa & The Lips) on the Junior Kimbrough song, Lord Have Mercy. The album art is by Kyler Martz.
This is GravelRoad’s best album yet. They’ve taken the North Mississippi style of blues and pushed it into some really heavy territory where Black Sabbath might have been had they grown up in Holly Springs Mississippi instead of Birmingham. You can help us spread the word by sharing the link below.
