Through the history of music, people who are blind just know what to do. This will smooth you over, pinch you, then groove you into submission.
This EP has been a while in the making. With every intention to rebuild and develop, the the music on this album has captured some real tastes in music. From the soul of the 60s to the jams in the living room. Burdens is just that, trying to let go and be whatever becomes. Sometimes life asks so much of you and all I want to do is be. Be present, enjoy, and have a moment before it gets swept into the ways of the world. Each song has elements of triumph over the so called times in my life. If you are like me, and let the mind crunch and grind over everything that is what I want to do, this becomes the drain when it should be the stories of what I accomplish. So often I waste time thinking about what could do rather than actually getting out there and doing it. It has been said before but I will say it again, procrastination leads to that old chestnut of depression and the way out is to do something. Keeping doing something until it is not a thought anymore.
This album adds the soul to blues and will take you on an emotional sound ride with stories of love, life and growth,
While previously known as 'Mr Bodangles' the artist has developed a new sound that is captivating and powerful. This album has been a slow but enjoyable creative process with 4 years passing since his previous release. However a new man is born and we are proud to present to you 'Love arrows' by Benny Rowe.
