Gerry Spehar is a folk country troubadour from Colorado, back with a brand new release hot on the heels of last year's critically acclaimed "I Hold Gravity." I See Hawks In L.A., Double Naught Spy Car, Tommy Jordan, and John David are the studio band. Red State trigger warning: This is a hard-hitting political protest album in the spirit of Woody Guthrie, albeit with psychedelic guitars and funky New Orleans horns. Trump fans beware!
I HOLD GRAVITY
With I See Hawks In L.A., multi-instrumentalist Tommy Jordan, Nashville keys ace Chris Tuttle and Gabe Witcher as his backup band, this album is the return of Gerry Spehar: encompassing leisurely swamp grooves, fingerpicked folk, country funk, and some psychedelic country rock: "I Hold Gravity."
It's the upside of a long hiatus: the spirit of the 70s, fresh and unbattered and ready for a world that needs a bit of optimism and, yes, erudition. It's country, folky, dark, witty. Alt country from an OG picker.
25 MILES TO BRADY
Bonus Track for I Hold Gravity: Smack in the heart of football crazed Texas lies the little town of Brady, population 5,553, home of the Bulldogs. This song’s for all the young pups out there looking to be the next best QB - like Brady himself! Are you ready world?
