European-based singer/songwriter George St. Clair has used his memories of growing up in Texas for the basis of his new album "Ballads Of Captivity And Freedom." The new 12-song release begins with the country-twang of "Tularosa" as he paints the perfect picture with his lyrics. He continues with the steady acoustic strumming of "The Places Were They Prayed" and the eight-minute country tale of the "Autumn 1889." George knows how to delivery that classic country sound with "Good Times," which sounds like a hit single decades earlier. The beautiful acoustics of "Cynthia" showcases his knack for adding a traditional Mexican-folk vibe, while "Up To Fail" is a politically-charged electric blues. George St. Clair finishes up his new album with the southwestern, acoustic folk appeal of "New Mexico" and live, in-studio recording of "Talkin Mesquite" as tribute to the classic folk troubadours of the 50s and 60s.
