Searing guitar, wailing harmonica and undeniable vocal power are woven into this collection of well crafted soulful songs. Eleven tracks that flow seamlessly from Blues to Southern Soul where just a touch of Southern Rock can be felt. The Beat Daddys ninth CD release also marks the first studio project of original songs released by the groups' songwriting team of Larry Grisham and Tommy Stillwell in over 21 years. A product of the music of the 60s & early 70s when the lines between musical genres were not as pronounced as they are today, their songs keep you "looking around every corner" to hear what's coming next...
Deeply rooted in the Blues, you can hear the influences of Howlin' Wolf, Muddy Waters and B.B. King. But you also hear the British influences of Eric Clapton and Peter Green. There are soulful offerings that sound like they came from somewhere between Memphis, TN and Jackson, MS, but all are undeniably The Beat Daddys.
An amalgamation of blues and Southern rock, the Beat Daddys are comprised of Lewis Ross (drums), Brill Morris (bass and vocals), Larry Grisham (guitar, harp and vocals), and Britt Meacham (guitar and vocals). Meacham, from Mobile, Alabama, was a member of Jackson Highway, a group that recorded for Capitol Records, and also toured with soul-blues man Little Milton Campbell. Bassist Morris was part of Mercury Records' David and the Giants and performed in a popular regional Gulf Coast band, Magik. Drummer Ross, also from Mobile, was a founding member of Wet Willie, and he was involved in co-writing the band's hits "Keep on Smilin'," "Red Hot Chicken" and "Macon Hambone Blues."
The Beat Daddys formed in Evansville, Indiana in the mid-1980s and released their own self-produced album before signing with Malaco Records. Their two mid-1990s Malaco/Waldoxy releases, No, We Ain't From Clarksdale and South to Mississippi, are not straight-ahead blues, to be sure, but fans of blues, roots-rock and Southern rock can find much to appreciate in either of them.
