I started a quest to find terrific blues music and incredible musicianship when I was just a little kid. I also have a tremendous appreciation of fine musical instruments and equipment. One of my greatest joys all of my life was sharing my finds with my friends. I'm now publishing my journey. I hope that you come along!

Gulf Coast Records artist: Ole Lonesome - Tejas Motel - New Release Review

 I just had the opportunity to review the most recent release, Tejas Motel, from Ole Lonesome and it's a cool, modern, interpretation of traditional blues with a grungy rock feel. Opening with Yvette, Zachary Feemster on vocal and guitar sets a solid foot in the mud with thick blues but with a modern, blues rock edge. With J. Wesley Hardin on bass, Gregory Mosley on keys, Jimmy Devers on drums and Greg Achord on guitar, I really like their stripped down guitar driven, but not overplayed approach. Gold Chevy has a cool, 60's vibe with it's heavy footed bottom by Devers and Hardin and power guitar riffs by Feemster and Achord pushing Feemster's vocal call, giving it pseudo Zep feel but in a fresh, grungy way. Another LZ influenced track, Momma's Worry will have you rocking out with a great bottom and excellent melody. Otis Rush influenced, Ain't No Good, is the most traditional blues track on the release and clearly shows Feemster's vocal work and fluid guitar blues runs.  Wrapping the release is title track, Tejas Motel with a Willie Dixon / Wang Dang Doodle feel. I like it's saunter and stroll with guitar and vocal. With glistening electric piano by Mosley and a perfect bass work by Hardin, Feemster stands back like a circus barker and paints a great image vocally. Excellent closer for a real tasty release.
