Title track from the forthcoming Gary Hoey’s new album Dust & Bones.
Having listened to the title track I can hear how Blues are the Dust & Bones that fuel Gary Hoey guitar playing on his 20th album out 29th July 2016. A trio who are not about adrenalin fuelled power. Gary Hoey’s guitar is startling in its electric blue purity as it plays above the stylish darker blue rhythms. Matt Scurfield on drums, when combined with Bassist AJ Pappas provide a rock solid grounding for Gary’s vocals and guitar artistry to fly.
“This is where I belong—playing this ferocious blend of blues and rock music,” says guitarist Gary Hoey about his 20th album, Dust & Bones. “I did my last album, Deja Blues, to prove to myself that I could play authentic blues, and now that I feel more at home there, I felt it was time to mix my favorite guitar styles into something seamless, organic, and powerful.”
Released through Mascot Label Group, Dust & Bones showcases Hoey’s Fender Stratocaster-driven fury alongside open-D-tuned resonator guitars plugged into half-stacks. The massive sonic attack was essential for paying sincere and appropriate homage to some of Hoey’s influences, such as Johnny Winter (“Steamroller”), Robin Trower (“This Time Tomorrow”), and Brian Setzer (“Who’s Your Daddy”), as well as a thrill-a-minute mash-up of Robert Johnson, meets Led Zeppelin (“Boxcar Blues”). There’s also a classic power ballad (“Coming Home”) where Lita Ford sings a duet with Hoey.
“This is the biggest-sounding album I’ve done in years,” says Hoey. “From the guitars to the vocals to the rhythm section—everything was designed to produce a huge impact. I’m just so proud of this record.” Listen to the preview and hear how Blues are the Dust & Bones that fuel Gary Hoey guitar playing and influences on Dust & Bones out 29th July 2016
