Blues Master Wily Bo Walker & New York’s Danny Flam top the download charts?!!
In a wealth of caution, I’ve held off on the following announcement but – Wily Bo Walker remains the #1 UK Indie Blues Artist in the Myspace charts and ‘Same Thing’ is No 3 In UK Blues and No 9 in the US!
Today in fact, (8/8/2010) Bo’s great stuff is at #7, #9 and #10 on the US Myspace indie blues chart. I’ve been working and co-writing with Bo for about 19 months now. We got in touch with each other via gearslutz. (gearslutz rocks!). I lay down the brass tracks back in May 09. Then I had a few new ideas, and Bo did too… which became a multitude of new ideas… and we ended up recording the final tracks using New York’s finest players including Keith Mack, Ruslan Agababayev, Tony Gorruso, Michael McGovern, Kenny Rampton, Scandal, Benjy King . The idea was to tap into the incredible talent base that congragates here, and meld the old school music style with modern sound. I guess it succeded…
I’m a fan of the song “Same Thing.” The opening ambient sound of twilight’s crickets makes it unique and really brings the listener front and center for Bo’s gnarly growl. The mix is great, and the brass ain’t bad either. 😉
Is this a great start to the week or what? I am so fortunate to be making music with this stellar artist.
