Check Out These New Blues Releases From Dave Kalz and Eamonn McCormack

Arriving June 25th on Gulf Coast Records is the debut solo album from blues artist Dave Kalz titled "Relish." Kalz was one of the founding members of Devon Allman's Honeytribe, which opened shows for the legendary Allman Brothers Band, as well as Dickey Betts, Little Feat and Molly Hatchet. Dave Katz's new album was produced by Gulf Coast Records founder/co-owner Mike Zito, who also plays guitar on a couple tracks on the album. Kalz' new set kicks off with the southern swagger of "Mexico," which showcases the skills he picked up on the road, working with these established blues bands. The album continues with the guitar driven title-track "Relish," as Dave's skills on the six-string are on full display peeling off solo after solo. His sound gets a little funkier with the rhythm of "Flying High," before slowing the tempo down for the ZZ Top-style of "Werewolf Blues," which features Mike Zito on slide guitar. The energy picks back up with the swift moving "Route 666," before Dave Kalz wraps things up on his new album with the short, but sweet guitar boogie of "Coffee With Muffin" and the loose jam of "Playing The Blues With My Friends."

Just last month, international blues artist Eamonn McCormack released his latest studio effort "Storyteller" through BEM Records. Eamonn has worked alongside many of his blues idols like Johnny Winter, Rory Gallagher and ZZ Top and his latest release showcases the exceptional songwriter and guitarist that Eamonn has become. The new eleven track release begins with the emotional, picture perfect story of "The Great Famine," as Eamonn uses his guitar skills to lay down the groundwork for this rocking opening number. He slows the tempo down for the great build-up of the politically charged "Help Me Understand," while the nostalgic flow of "Tie One On" sounds straight from classic big guitar rock of the seventies. The slow blues of "In A Dream" combines Eamonn's stellar guitar work with his beautiful songwriting, as the words come straight from the heart. He wraps up his new album with the adrenaline fueled, straight-up rockers of "With No Way Out" and "Make My Move."
