Sweet Hearted Woman (2018)
available as a download and for streaming, Spotify, Youtube, Apple iTunes etc.
There are a few musicians on this record that I would like to mention here. Respect to my long-standing friend and musical partner, Paul Hartshorn. Paul has produced and played guitar on 3 of the songs on this, my latest album, "Sweet Hearted Woman". His professionalism and talent, not to mention his adaptability and his ability to draw the best out of me and my music, have never ceased to amaze me over almost 30 years of working with him.
Also, I'm very happy to include on the album, the versatile & soulful playing of Sean McBride on Tenor & Baritone Saxophones, and Flute as well. Over the years, Sean has often recorded and gigged with the band. His expressive playing is featured here on 9 of the tunes.
A huge thank you to the up-coming and exciting guitarist Ruzz Evans. The sweet sound he gets from that black Gretsch guitar of his on 3 of my tunes, has brought extra colour and character to the album. It was indeed an honour to return his gesture inviting me to contribute to his albums "Burn Out" 2018 and "The Heist" 2019.
Eddie John on drums is featured on 5 of the tunes here. Eddie's style and energy is perfect for me. When playing "live" in The Pete Gage Band, he seems instinctively to know what myself and the music require.
Also featured is Duncan Kingston, from the band, and the Blues Trio. Also featured on the album is Richie Blake on bass. I have worked with Richie on and off for more than 20 years, and Richie now features regularly with the Pete Gage Blues Quartet.
Then there's the brilliant Rob Brian, whom I first worked with about 20 years ago when I guested with the Innes Sibun Band. Rob is a very musical drummer whose timing never fails to amaze. His presence is always a bonus for the band.
Finally, the songs are not all brand new. Some of them I have kept on the back burner until the right time came along. All have been remixed and compiled over a 6-month period. It's not all blues this time, but I guess my voice cannot avoid that cracked blues-y edge. The end result is a collection of songs that reflect where I'm at on this leg of my musical life.
