Livn It Southern Soul Style
Legendary blues guitarist and singer SaRon Crenshaw will release is first studio album, a two disc set featuring ten extended tracks, on OneTrickDog* Records on July 18th . The album, Drivin', contains all original material by Crenshaw composed over the last few years. While Crenshaw is influenced by the likes of B.B. King, Albert King, Albert Collins, Stevie Ray Vaughan and Buddy Guy, he describes his playing as "blues with a soul twist," and Drivin' reflects this, incorporating influences from country-western music as well as R&B. The inspiration for Drivin' came when Crenshaw bought a vintage Cadillac, which he says, "would run for two or three weeks before it predictably broke down, costing me a fortune." The result was the title track, and a double record set of long format, live-feel blues, imagined to a backdrop of traveling the road with his beloved "Lucille" model Gibson (signed personally by B.B. King). Crenshaw has consistently been described in superlatives.
