Producing exceptional talent, Canada has joined the ranks of the major US blues centers including the Delta, Texas, Chicago and Memphis. Big boss man Kirby Sewell from Calgary sings his bona fides as a visionary powerhouse demanding to be heard. Following two releases in 2010 and 2012, this third album is a blockbuster of uniquely original, contemporary blues-based music.Ten tracks written by producer/guitarist Neil Gunhold, save for “Kiss You Tonight” co-authored by Sewell, are kicked hard by Morgan Turk (lead guitar), Jae Cho (bass) and Jim Johnson (drums). Jungle drums and ominous bass open “The Devil’s in the Details” with a musical heads up. Funky and shuffling guitars dynamically underpin Sewell accusing in his deeply textured, expressive voice “Youʼre gonna have to take a bank loan, to pay back the wages of your sin. Oh the devilʼs in the details, he knows exactly where youʼve been” as Gunhold and Turk crank razor notes. The soulful R&B ballad “Simply Not Enough,” with country harmony guitars, finds Sewell pleading “There ain’t no time like the present, to walk away from the past. Or step right in to my future, find a love thatʼll last. And someday when you see me, you’ll know me at last.” The title track mashes rocking stop-time verses and a jazzy swing groove for Sewell to humorously observe with inflamed libido “Is that a map of southeast Asia? I bet you’d be helpful on a trip. Does that vine stop at your skirt line, or go all the way up to your hip?”Blues and early rock ‘n’ roll on “Carry Me Home” encourage Sewell’s dramatic, emotional phrasing of “I watched a movie of a book I’d read. They changed the ending to a happy one instead. I asked the question, could this be right? Do I need to move to Hollywood to change my life?” matched by Turk’s sympathetic solo. The funky “Stop and Go” contains Turk’s genre-crossing slide solo, while Sewell vents carnal frustration with “It’s up and down, back and forth. It’s a show of hands to show what hands are for. And it’s alright, you know all you need to know. You feel it coming, my topʼs about to blow. I know you know it ʻcause you stop and go.” “$1.11” is a rush of urgent boogie rock that must be killer live as Sewell roars out his confession “I sold my soul for a dollar, I sold my dreams for a dime. I sold my heart for a penny in a pawnshop on the corner. Now I got a $1.11” while Turk rakes over his frets.A contemporary Nashville vibe colors “A Better Reason” with Sewell’s honey chops imploring “…baby, I’d love to have a better reason. Oh baby, Iʼd love to be a better man. I can tell you ʻbout the nights holdinʼ on so tight ʻtil I felt your love slipping right out of my hands. Try to understand, maybe that’s just who I am” as Turk picks hot country licks. Sewell bares his desire on the Stones-y “Kiss You Tonight” with “Put on that pretty dress tonight, we’re gonna dance barefoot under the moonlight. The ciderʼs spicy and the bourbonʼs mean. And you look so good to me, oh, out of sight. I waited all day to kiss you tonight” as he and Turk build to an explosive climax. Menacing bass pumps the heavy rocking, minor key “Cryin’ All the Way Home,” Sewell lamenting with pathos “She took my wallet and my calfskin vest. I checked the bank account, there’s six bucks left. I’m gonna need a beer and a quarter for the goddamned phone. Callin’ up my mama, cryinʼ all the way back home.” Chicago blues meets country rock in the closing “Till the River Starts to Overflow,” acoustic and electric guitars blending evocatively while Sewell recounts his hardships culminating in “Oh my Lord, I ain’t got nothinʼ left to lose. I got so many tears, nobody knows. I’ll just keep cryinʼ till the river starts to overflow.”
Kirby Sewell sings with enormous passion and expression, blurring the line between art and life rare in much modern music. With the blues as his constant “rider,” he transforms all he touches into the deepest listening experience.
