Feelin Flush: Musically Turning Up The Heat, Southern Style - Page 2
KT: That’s one of the things I like about it. I kind of have a soft spot for southern rock and southern blues. A lot of great bands came out of the south…even to this day. I just think they get it right most of the time.
LH: For sure, there’s so much energy down here when it comes to music, you know it dates back so far. I love it. I don’t even consider myself a northern boy anymore. I’ve been down here 15, 16 years and I call it home.
KT: Your bio said you and Chuck put a plan together to record an album. Well, the album is out. Question is: did it all work out according to the plan?
LH: Yeah, without a doubt. You know when we sat down and decided to do the album; it was more that we just wanted people to hear the music. That’s where we were at. We were sitting down writing these songs, and we were having so much fun and you have people stopping by and listening and getting excited.
We were doing acoustic shows and people were liking it so we were gonna do an acoustic album. Mike Martin (guitarist) from Stuck Mojo was going to produce it out of Atlanta, but it would have been too difficult trying to do the album and a six hour commute, so we decided to do the production of it here. There’s a producer Corey Plaugh, who lives here in South Carolina, he’s one of the best and he got on board with the mixing and mastering. We ended up with something we really love and we’re really proud of it. We are just excited to get it out there for everybody.
"Takin a trip to New Orleans,Voodoo Dolls and tambourines,
I know you can, I know you can"
KT: When I heard the opening notes of “I Know You Can,” I was intrigued. It’s a really strong first release, showing off your clean, blues vocal and some sweet guitar work from Chuck. And, I love the imagery of “voodoo dolls and tambourines.” Give me some background on how you guys put it together.
LH: I was up one night watching a White Stripes documentary believe it or not. I’m just sitting there picking the guitar and Jack White had an acoustic session with these elderly people and the vibe of it was so awesome; it had a real country-southern vibe. So that kind of brought the chord progression on to me when I wrote it. But the song is actually about just trips to New Orleans that I used to take with my friends over the years. All the experiences. It’s just a fun place, there’s so much music and energy. Continued on the next page
