Art Block Some superb guitar playing in the bluegrass, slide guitar blues tradition. Recommend this feast for the ears. Favorite track: Princess Blues (feat. Nathan Peter Illes & Brady Jo).

Brian K (The Brian Jin) “Princess Blues” opens with the kind of riff that would make anyone want to play guitar. The lyrics are intelligently observational and a tongue-in-cheek social commentary, yet simple enough to be sung along.
“Hudson River Blues” creates a soundscape that is created by someone who lives life outside the confines of backlight and thumbnails. This type of feeling can’t be created without real life and it’s all here and genuine.

We were casting judgment on the boulevard Dreaming of the days we’d be free and ground And we’d save a princess like we were taught by the school board Come to find no princess wants to be saved anymore All the cars they were the sweet moonlight And the tail lights were the bright killing sun And I’m stuck here petting my dog with no backseat to call my own And I’m stuck here petting my dog.. If we figured the whole thing out Then we haven’t talked boys like me what to be With no princess to save anymore. I swear by the rain that keeps fucking up my hair By opening up a door I’m somehow firing up flares Lord let me have a lover I swear I’ll treat her tender I swear Lord let me save a princess… If we figure the whole thing out Then we haven’t taught boys like me want to be With no princess to save anymore.

Left my good intentions Been thrust out of the state I’ve come to find that home’s a point in time Not a place Settled west of the river Looking for somewhere to hide Everyone can see me But no one looks me in the eye Burnt out on the Hudson I’m done facing all my fears I’ve got all the freedom in the world But it cost a lot up here Snowed two weeks late last winter Advised to stay inside My heart turned as cold as that river I still haven’t thawed my mind And memories serve as flights of fancy At least they don’t take up my time That’s all spent making money But I can’t buy what I left behind Sold my soul for a shelter Some might say that’s a mistake No time left for the future You can’t drink at your own wake I remember why I came here But it’s time to travel on I’ve been moving around so quickly I forgotten where I belong Burnt out on the Hudson I’m done facing all my fears I’ve got all the freedom in the world But I’ve lost a lot up here
