Tony's been a regular Shedder for over a year now. He came to The Shed as a bass player, but he had a few original tunes up his sleeve. And he likes to sing. He's also very keen to master the black art of production. Earlier this year we posted 'First Class Ticket', a song Tony wrote, sang, played bass on, and produced. Pretty handy fellow to have around !!
For his second original offering, YOU AND THE BLUES, Tony asked Kerry to sing lead and Jock to provide back-up vocals. Nice teamwork Tony !
You And The Blues is Jock's PBGB debut. Well done Jock !! Welcome aboard the good ship PBGB !
Jock wandered into The Shed late last year, and is now a very welcome regular. We had heard about Jock through her appearances at the Candelo Blues Club Sunday jams. Word was that Jock could really belt out a blues, and that became very evident as soon as she sidled up to a mic. and let fly. Jock brings a truckload of enthusiasm........ she's great fun to make music with. We can't wait for Jock to feature as lead vocalist on one of our songs............watch this space, won't be long.
Kerry has added her vocals to a half a dozen PBGB songs now, including a couple of her own originals. She really enjoys afternoons in The Shed and seems to be feeling right at home.
Anyway, Kerry and Jock are showing real promise working together..............a powerful synergy............don't you agree ?
Tony explains that You And The Blues tells the age old story of how people are attracted to musicians, but sometimes grow tired of the commitment to music that comes with the territory. That commitment frequently involves many late nights, expenses, trips away, and, well, the word obsession springs to mind. It is no coincidence that the very first PBGB Value reads "Family First.....No rock and roll widows or neglected children here please". So yea Tony, we know where you're coming from !
You And The Blues is Tony's second shot at producing a PBGB song. He's putting hard yards into mastering the ins and outs of production, and it shows.
