Will Sexton Returns With The Sounds Of "Darkness" & Carla Olson Is Traveling Again With More "Harmony"

Texas-born guitarist Will Sexton will release his first new album in over a decade. The new release titled "Don't Walk The Darkness" will be available on March 6th, through Big Legal Mess Records. The ten new tracks are inspired by his recent dwellings in Memphis, as Sexton is backed by the Crescent City legends, The Iguanas. Will begins the new album with the bluesy, guitar-boogie shuffle of the title song "Don't Walk With Darkness (Through The Day)." You can hear a renewed sense of performing with the energetic southern rocker "Temptations Call," while "Witness" is a laid back country hymn that will remind you of his early days back in Texas. He returns to the blues of "Only Forever," as you can't help but fall in love with Will's songwriting. He always seems to find the perfect melody for every set of lyrics. He closes out his new album with the up-tempo, swinging rhythm, rockabilly feel of "What My Baby Don't Know" and the quieter, mild touch of "Fell In Straight View," which finishes the album off with a soothing lullabye.

Also arriving in March is the latest release from another Texas-born artist, Carla Olson. Here new album "Have Harmony, Will Travel 2" will be released on March 20th, through Sunset Blvd. Records. It is the sequel to her successful 2013 album "Have Harmony, Will Travel," which found Carla duetting with some star-powered artists like Juice Newton, Peter Case and John York. Her new album continues the tradition with eleven more tracks, beginning with the acoustic rocker "Timber, I'm Falling In Love," which features the wonderful work of Stephen McCarthy (Long Ryders). Next, Carla goes all out country on "A Child's Claim To Fame" with the help of Timothy B. Schmit (The Eagles) and then you find her vocals fit so perfectly alongside Peter Noone's (Herman's Hermits) on their cover of the Searchers' hit single "Goodbye My Love." Carla Olsen also knows out to rock, as she works alongside Ana Gazzola on the Stephen Stills' original "Uno Mundo." Terry Reid steps in for the quiet, acoustic ballad "Scarlet Ribbons," before Carla closes out her new album with a return to the country with the help of I See Hawks In L.A. for the sweet strumming of "Bossier City" and then the famous Gene Clark (The Byrds) performs one of his originals "Del Gato," which Carla adds the perfect vocal compliment to.
