John Fusco Switches From Film To Music With The Release Of His Debut Album

Musician and award-winning filmmaker John Fusco is preparing to release his debut on February 11th, through Cody Dickinson's Checkerboard Lounge Recordings label. Fusco is joined by his band, The X-Road Riders and he picks up right where the late-great Gregg Allman left off. Fusco may be best known for the films "Crossroads," "Young Guns" and "Hidalgo," as well as the new Kevin Costner-Woody Harrelson drama "The Highwaymen."

His new self-titled album features ten tracks that bring you back to the southern, soulful sounds of blues/country rock, which The Allman Brothers Band turned into a fifty year career. He begins with the swagger of "Rolling Thunder," as you are introduced to Fusco's ruff vocals, which perfectly balances the great guitar work of Cody Dickinson. The blues come pouring out with the songs "Drink Takes The Man" and "Hello, Highway" as you begin to settle in to this great debut album. The gospel-like feel of "A Stone's Throw" and the classic Delta-blues of "I Got Soul," showcases Fusco's sound well beyond his years as he sound like a veteran bluesman. He finishes up his new album with the exciting guitar-organ exchange on "Boogie On The Bayou" and the dual-guitar shuffle of "Crossroad Blues," featuring Luther Dickinson.
