Imagine how you like yr blues. Do you like 'em traditional (whatever that is)? Creepy and slidin'? Sweet? Heavy? Tough and shiney? Weird and wiggy? Brilliant and stoney? That's how GravelRoad likes 'em too. Seattle's GravelRoad are deep blues fiends who have crawled through the vast black hole left by the deaths of Junior Kimbrough and R.L. Burnside, been absorbed into the razor light shining from the ancient beacon of Mr.Fred McDowell and have smelt the bleached burnt rubber black top left in the shadow of ZZ Top's last ride through and back to Greenville and in turn fashioned their own entity and identity out of Mississippi rain, dirty warehouses, downtown last calls, beer stank basements and Capitol Hill Country Hi-Rises. Songs, freakouts, grooves, stomps, humps, knuckle draggers and dirty remixes about bad women, worse men, brand new babies,and trouble. Plenty of trouble. How do I like my blues? GravelRoad Style.
GravelRoad will rock The Deep Blues Festival Friday July 18th
