SOUTHERN HOSPITALITY RELEASES “EASY LIVIN”
Damon Fowler, Victor Wainwright, and JP Soars are Southern Hospitality and in March 2013 “SOHO” will debut to the international roots music world with a release on Blind Pig Records. Easy Livin’, promises to be one of the most exciting CDs of 2013. Damon, Victor, and JP are musician’s musicians, each bringing a unique style and fresh translation of the great Southern soul, blues, and rock music that came before them. Together, their mutual chemistry, high energy and musical talents create a cohesive vision, with echoes of Muscle Shoals and Macon, that organically flows together into an entirely original and dynamic form of Americana and Southern soul roots music with a modern sensibility. Produced by Tab Benoit and recorded at Benoit’s “Whiskey Bayou Studio” in Louisiana the record’s journey stays on a southern musical trail. The CD’s heart felt lyrics and the melding of the styles of Damon, Victor, and JP who are three top virtuosos on today’s roots music scene created a great soulful harmony that flows beyond the music as it enlightens the listener and separates the band and it’;s music from anything out there today.
