Six Pack “Yellow Moon”

Bobby Lindstrom Live in Central Oregon USA Tonight

Hey Central Oregon Peeps!!!!

Hey hey it’s Saturday night at Velvet with Bobby Lindstrom and Ed the Whistler joining him.
I’m thinking Bobby might be talked into giving us a prerelease performance of a tune or two from his coming to you soon new album, recorded at Sound Concepts Studio in Nashville this past summer.
Along with Bobby’s enormous and vast repertoire the evenings tunes will keep the toes tapping and the heart rate pumping.

 

Bobby Lindstrom’s Hefferdust Blues (sneak peeking to upcoming new album)

Please allow BMG to introduce you to Bobby Lindstrom Hefferdust Blues.

Bobby is a Oregon home-grown guy originally born and raised in Coos Bay Oregon, now residing with his wife and guitars in Bend Oregon (if you haven’t yet been introduced to his Hefferdust Blues)  As this post is being typed Bobby is currently in a Nashville studio laying down tracks for his new Cd – all original material.

The following video performance is one inspired by a trip to New Orleans last fall with his bride Sharon, Bobby not only memorialized a significant trip to the Big Easy but he (as is his style) shares an important universal message through song.

* Note: ft Ed The Whistler accompanying Bobby.

 

Bobby Lindstrom – Vocals, Guitar, Songwriter

Genres: Singer Songwriter Blues / Rock

Label: Hefferdust Music Co.

Born in a small timber town on the Oregon Coast, Bobby’s passion for music began at Christmas at age 10 with his first guitar. Many bands and guitars later he connected with his treasured 1968 Les Paul in 1970. Now named “Bessie Mae” (named by Little Milton’s long-time road mgr, Scrap Iron, while on the Blues Cruise Oct 2010) She has been his constant companion for 4 decades, bearing witness to this passion which has taken him across the USA sharing his gift.

His friends and fans know the intensity and love of music that he exudes while performing, which is truly justified watching any one of his animated live shows. His songwriting has exploded recently, with 4 cd’s released since 2010, 3 of which are all original songs, some of his best work yet, and one a cover of his old blues favorites with some amazing musicians backing him up.

“He is a high energy, blues influenced rock ‘n roller at the top of his game.” His full soul is fast becoming known and welcomed as “one of the most prolific singer/songwriters in America.”

Bobby’s long road to success has been well worth the journey. He just seems to always have a good time. At home in Central Oregon Bobby embraces the opportunity to play with some of the best musicians this side of the Mississippi every chance he gets and it’s always a wonderful surprise to discover who might be joining him on stage. With the same love of music and perseverance he has always embodied Bobby continues to promise and deliver all great things still to come.

Paying his dues after performing for years all over the Northwest and meeting people from all over the world Breedlove Guitars added Bobby as a Breedlove endorsed Bluesman when they handing him a 5k acoustic beauty he lovingly named “Belle.” A finely crafted instrument, the tones and sounds it makes magically complement Bobby’s voice. It was given to him by the company to perform to the masses, carry the music, and do a little advertising for them, which he proudly does with every performance.

“Belle” Bobby’s beloved Breedlove

Whether a solo or duo show; with funny stories, soulful ballads, rocking the blues…or with his band which includes some of the best talent anywhere, you can catch him performing at many popular venues and clubs. Bobby Lindstrom receives rave reviews from fellow musicians and critics alike. Available for private house parties, weddings, family reunions, celebrations of all kinds. You will not be disappointed by hiring Bobby Lindstrom!

BRICK FIELDS GOT SOUL TOUR BEGINS!

Seems almost surreal that they’re on the road.

Brick Fields began planning, booking, and promoting this month long tour about a year ago. Miss Rachel agreed to journal the tour as Larry navigates and pilots their tour van Gypsy west. It takes little imagination after reading Rachel’s first entry to be able to hear the AWEsome harmonizing that must be going on in that van with Rachel, Larry, & their 3 girls.

August 4, 2014 at 11:33pm

Many of you have requested that I keep you updated and tell you about the journey. Also since so many of you are the reason we are taking this journey I very much want to share it with you so here goes…

 

First things first! Thank you to all of the beautiful and amazing folks who are supporters of our music and mission. We could not continue doing what we do if it wasn’t for you and that is the truth. I am beside myself and humbled by the love and support we have received over the past few months as well as over the years. Everytime I think we are about to be without God provides through you and I am reminded that this is the path He has put me on. Thank the Lord cause I wouldn’t want to be anywhere else other than right here and right now. So from the bottom of our hearts Larry and myself both thank you. May you be blessed for your outpour of blessings. Now, on with the journey.

 

After a concert at the Owen’s Theater in Branson MO last night where the good folks of the Owens’ theater took such great care of us we headed out toward LA this morning. This is probably the 7th or 8th time I’ve made this trip in my lifetime but this time is different because I get to share it with my children who have never really been too far from the Ozarks and I know the sites will be a grand sight for them. So far it has been a smooth ride. Gypsy (our new/ old 1983 conversion van) is running like a champ and Larry drove all day getting us here to Tucumcari New Mexico safe and sound. Today my children got to see miles and miles of massive windmills throughout the prairies of Oklahoma, the big skies of Texas and acres of ranch land where the cows roam wild and free. These sites were all so new for them compared to our beautiful Ozarks Mountains and it was just breathtaking. Today God provided perfect weather and clear blue skies for the occasion.

 

We have made plans to stop for at least one restaurant meal a day on this journey so that we can enjoy the different foods in the area and maybe stop at some of the restaurants we’ve seen on food network. Today we chose to stop at the Rock Cafe in Stroud OK for lunch. We pulled up to this old rock building on Route 66 blooming with character. The inside was homey and warm with framed autographed pictures of different folks who have stopped there as well as newspaper articles raving about this humble little dive in the middle of nowhere OK. I loved it right away. The restaurant was featured on the cartoon movie “Cars” so there was a lot of memorabilia from the movie which interested the kids. Larry had a cheeseburger, CC a club sandwhich, Sally a hot dog, and Riley a Hamburger. I tried the famous Spatzel which was a type of mac and cheese but the noodles were more like tiny dumplings and there were onions and peppers with tomatoes mixed in. Everything was amazing and we signed the wall in the hallway before we left.

 

Today we did a lot of riding but we did get to stop for a short walk in the Texas Canyon wind which the kids were hoping to catch flight in. We also drove through this small nearly deserted Texas town that reminded me of a western movie. I kept expecting to see a draw in the middle of the dusty road but no such thing happened. I must say, Larry is being a trooper couped up in the van with 3 girls and a Mama. I only had to have one screaming fit before we left town to let the girls know that there would be no nonsense. It seems to have worked. So far they are getting along pretty good. This will make for some good songwriting…..

 

Tomorrow the kids will see the New Mexico desert for the first time as well as the Arizona mountains. I hope to stop for some white sage along the way and teach the kids how to make smudge sticks.

 

If you’d still like to book a concert in the area we are traveling through or would like us to stop and sing or pray for you or your family members in the area. Contact me at brickfields@brickfieldsmusic.com

“Come’ on Train”… next stop The Trevor Sewell Band (interview pt 1)

Barefoot Music’s Exclusive Interview w/Trevor Sewell

Part I of II


Some of the best Blues musicians globally are not from the southern region of the USA where the roots of Blues was founded. Trevor Sewell’s British Blues Band – The Trevor Sewell Band reaches the rocky and soft shores of Blues-hounds everywhere, bringing his fantastic storytelling through his lyrics and guitar.

Vocally & musically I have become a hard fast fan of the band’s.

I find Trevor to be the epitome of a consummate lead guitarist and singer/songwriter. Though I have not had the pleasure of seeing the band perform live (yet, albeit on my bucket list) his persona & showmanship comes across even in his recordings and videos. Trevor’s vocals & guitar chops speak Front-Man without question.

Hearing the rich timbre of a bluesy vocalist like Trevor Sewell is why I like listening to someone….singing the blues.

 

With release of Trevor’s latest CD titled “*Independence ”  and receiving the 2013 Hollywood Music Media Award for Best blues (more details to follow) on the same day no doubt swung Trevor’s life into full motion, yet he still finds the time to share with his fans. Being a generous person is only a glimpse of who Trevor is; and in that spirit he took time for an interview with wonderful details about himself and his music. Because Trevor so pleasantly surprised this writer by his openness and sharing, he inspired this to be a two-part series, which is an amazing & humble honor for Barefoot Music.

So on that note, as a favorite DJ of mine often says; “ You didn’t come here to listen to me…”

Up first is Trevor’s award-winning song “The Train” which on a side note let me just add; as you’ll see Trevor is playing his 3-string Cigar Box guitar with his amazing slide work.

Enjoy.

 ” The Train. “

 
Interview Part One:
 
BM: When I first was introduced to your music I heard a definite Mark Knopfller influence, which you shared with me was not the first time you had heard this.
Who is it that influences you musically?
Trevor:   ” Yes I get the Mark Knopfler comparison quite a lot and this may possibly be in part because we both come from the same place as I actually went to
the same school with both of the Knopflers (I was in the same class as David). In those days Mark was very into Bob Dylan and I always take any comparisons with him as a compliment – he was great player even in those days and I have a lot of respect for him. Other major and perhaps more direct influences can really be pinned down to 3 very specific albums. The first being John Mayall with Eric Clapton and the Bluesbreakers, the second Are You experienced by Jimi Hendrix and the third Burglar by Freddie King. I only really discovered Freddie King in the mid 70’s but I learned how to play guitar by working out the Eric Clapton and Jimi Hendrix albums. “
BM:  As  I write these questions I am listening to “The Train”  from your new CD INDEPENDENCE, which you won an award for recently. I think all your fans might  wonder like me;  How did you find yourself writing this powerful song?
Trevor:  First up I have to say that the Train is not in any way autobiographical in nature but is an anti drugs song. The idea is that I’ve used a train metaphor to hopefully suggest a scenario that outlines just how easy it is to board the train but that it is a much different story when it comes to trying to get off. There are references e.g to mainlining and taking away my self-respect etc. but I wanted it to have a more positive message near the end where it says ‘just lost control for a little while that’s all and ‘I’m gonna stop you train right now – gonna stop you in your tracks – c’mon train disappear and don’t come back ‘ In the story the subject is determined to beat the train (drug habit) but acknowledges that it may be a difficult task. I hope you get the feeling that the subject is very determined to win and that the outcome will probably be a positive one.
 INDEPENDENCE  The Trevor Sewell Band
BM: Tell us about the artwork for your cover of your new CD Independence.

Trevor: The Artwork was designed by Doug Wallace a very talented Design Student at Northumbria University (well technically he is actually a graduate of the Interactive Media Design course there). The photo was taken in Shaw along the Blues Trail in America by Paul Blackburn. I wanted something that suggested Independence and blues but with a more contemporary edge and I think Doug has hit the spot with this. I also liked that it wasn’t just another picture of me. 

BM: You’ve been in the industry for many years, working with some fantastic musicians and studios; how would you say your music has changed over time?

Trevor:  Well when I very first started – my first ever gig in fact I can still remember the set list as we only knew 3 songs. We were supporting my brothers band and it was quite a big event so we used their gear (well we didn’t really have any of our own) we started off with well respected man by the Kinks then did one of my own songs called ‘out of sight out of mind’ which if I’m being honest had more than a passing resemblance to ‘can’t explain’ by the Who and we finished off with Walking the dog – the audience were great and shouted for more but we hadn’t actually thought that far in advance so we didn’t have anything else we could play. Later I played a lot of Eric Clapton and Jimi Hendrix mixed with a fair smattering of Soul, Motown and early rock music like Deep Purple, Spooky Tooth, Santana, Joe Cocker and Sly and the Family Stone –so my roots were probably pretty well established when I discovered Freddie King and Tower of Power in the 70s. I then drifted into resident jobs in the Middle East and Europe for a few years where I had to play a very wide range of material everything from Jazz standards to Rock of the day which was good experience for playing sessions. In the 80’s I was signed to EMI records with a band called the Revillos and when that split I toured with The Monroes on EMI Norway. After founding Made to Measure Music in 1988 I had another detour in direction where I was writing music for different purposes that ranged from Dance to Ambient and beyond some of the companies I worked with included Sony and the BBC. I still do music for adverts etc. but gradually I was starting to look back to my roots and after a long period of extensive gigging on my own I one day around three years ago had a kind of light bulb moment when I just thought ‘Why don’t I just do something for myself’ and so I recorded the ‘Calling Your Name Album’ I didn’t have a plan or a market or anything in mind I just wanted to have some fun and it really helped me rediscover why all those years ago I wanted to learn how to play guitar and that it had nothing to do with making money or earning a living – it was just because I liked it. After so many years with record companies and managements etc. telling me ‘what I should be doing’ I just thought ‘I’m just going to do this anyway even if its only me that gets to hear the end result’ and this return to my roots has brought with it perhaps some of the biggest surprises that I have had to date and no one is more surprised than me about just how far it has gone in such a short length of time and all without a record company.

Tune back in tomorrow for part II and learn more about bluesmen Trevor Sewell. A BIG THANK YOU Trevor for taking away from your valuable 
composing and studio time to chat..

Before concluding Part II of the interview with Trevor Sewell I want to thank Trevor again for his time he gave to us his fans in sharing for this post and for his music he brings to our lives. It enriches our lives.  Please take some time and visit Trevor's web site and also look for his new album "Independence" at the retail outlets lined below. I am fortunate to have acquired Independence and his album Calling Your Name (another personal favorite) in my own collection which adds nicely to my blues collecion. I don't think one should be without

Both Trevor and I want to thank his loyal fans for your attention. Trevor’s wishes to also welcome and thank  his newest fans.

Trevor Sewell Band at The Cluny –   ” 100 Years”

Part II


BM:  You are a brilliant composer & storyteller. What is your process for creating your lyrics and music?

 
Trevor: Thank you Toni that’s very kind of you – my process changes all the time I tend to write all the time -sometimes it may be just picking up my guitar and starting to sing something – anything. I usually stick my phone on to record the rough ideas and sometimes I might even be watching TV while its happening I just open my mouth and make grunting noises while I’m experimenting with some chords – it sounds awful but if I get something that I like it sort of means something to me when I play it back. Sometimes I go into the studio and maybe stick a drum loop on and just jam – I try not to think about structure at that time or in fact anything really. The words usually just come in their most basic form at the same time. I have no idea where the words come from I have a theory that there is a little bloke inside my head with a desk and a pen and paper and he sort of just does that – I never think about them as he always delivers something that I like – very occasionally there might be a line which I think may sound like a very strong line but if it just doesn’t’ sit well with me, I throw it out but that’s pretty much the only times I disagree with the little bloke in my head.
 

BM:  With all that you have experienced as a musician what has success come to mean for you?

Trevor:  Success is just such a movable concept as the goal posts are always changing. I tend not to think about it and I definitely don’t measure it in any financial terms. I like being able to do what I like and I am generally a happy sort of person with a lovely family around me who put up with having to hear the same song blasting out of my recording studio over and over again while I’m writing stuff. I’m happier now than I have ever been musically because I just do what I like and its really great when other people seem to like it. The other major thing is that everyone from my area and on Facebook have been so incredibly supportive sharing things and generally giving me the encouragement that perhaps you don’t always get on a label who tend to be more interested in the financial side. Once you remove the money side all together it gets to be much more fun and I feel that I am more or less back in the same mindset as I was when I started at thirteen years of age with my first guitar- In other words I’m back to playing just because I want to!– I guess that is sort of a success in its self. I feel very lucky that I discovered playing music all of those years ago and that I still really like doing it today.    

BM:    As an award wining bluesman, performer, & recording artist, can you share some of your best tips for an aspiring artist?

Trevor:  This might sound like a ‘I’ve heard all this before’ scenario but (and I had this said to me many times over the years but chose to ignore it –DOH!) – Just do something that you want to do and stop trying to please everybody – if you like it then the chances are that someone else somewhere will too – its more a question of finding like minded people and growing your own audience and in this day and age with social networks etc. its all possible – in fact that’s how I met you Toni   – like I say I wish I had taken that on board a lot of years ago but I suppose I had to discover it for myself –I think hindsight would have come in very handy at times.

BM: A little gear speak, can you please tell us about your favorite guitars
Trevor:  I have a selection of guitars which I use for different purposes. I have two vintage Gibson Les Pauls  a 1969 Goldtop and a 1973 re-issue. Also A contemporary series Fender Telecaster which date to 1984. The one I use the most live at the moment is an artist series Fender Stratocaster which has been very heavily modified. The body has been grouted out to make room for the electrics I imported from America which gives it midi capabilities when couple with an Axon Fast Response system. One of my other favourites is my Cigar Box which I use on songs like the Train. It was made by an English guitar maker called Chickenbone John – all of his guitars are one offs and I have a 6 string resonator made from an oil canon order from him but you can’t hurry Chicken-bone John, so I may have to wait a while yet.
Trevor:   I don’t have a playlist as such as my phone is usually just on Random and it contains such a wide variety – Freddie King and Robert Johnson are both in there as are Kate Bush, Green Day Black Keys The Byrds The Clash Funkadelic Imelda May, Patto. Paloma Faith, Mumfords The Pogues Brooke Nickerson and loads of others actually way too many to mention – I’m always open to new ideas (and old ones) 
 
Thank you once again Trevor Sewell for your always outstanding musicianship. 
 

if you you’re in the UK Newscastle area and you get the chance go out to see Trevor and his band.  Live at The Cluny, last time around catch us back at The Cluny on Friday December 27th – tickets online from www.thecluny.com or if you see me just ask 🙂

Friday Night Blues w, Inedependent Artists The Brick Fields Band

Apologies for the quiet days here on Barefoot Music. Though this blog has been devoid of the diverse music postings my ears have not. 
I’d like to introduce you the fantastic brother-sister duet The Brick Fields Band. ( for a short biography see notes below video)

Brick Fields Music

Friday Night Blues w/ The Brick fields Band
  “ Just like good old fashion medicine, we all need a taste of this invigorating music”  ~ Brick fields.
“On The Vine”

Included is the band’s biography from their artist page for several reasons.

{One] because promoting independent music is a personal passion that I believe in voicing my support for. {Two} because it is my experience that the fans of independent artists tend to feel a closer connection and bond with their favorite musicians and bands.  (Three) In that spirit of musicianship I believe in sharing good music forward. I’d like to ask you to do the same.

Please treat yourself to a visit  to Brick Fields links below, acquaint yourself with more of their richly organic & natural style and sound, They would like to know you were there so please; say hello and where you’re from.

From the band’s artist page: ( find their music here)  http://www.mixposure.com/brick-fields-music

Larry Brick and Rachel Fields-Brick both Arkansas natives, come together with their natural approach Original Arkansas Blues using a Gospel platform as well as an Americana Soul feel.  Larry, on guitar and background vocals along with Rachel using her ambrosial voice while playing guitar and flute, bring together a stormy performance each and every time.  The team are definitive blues artists, although there repertoire includes originals written by both and of various genres including Gospel, Ballads, R&B and well-tested standards.  The collaboration of these different genres of music touches the heart and soul of all walks of life.  Known for presenting enriching concerts, Brick Fields offer American entertainment for the young and old alike.  Just like good old fashion medicine, we all need a taste of this invigorating music. The Nashville Blues Society has called Brick Fields Music an “Unleashed cleansing of the soul!” and New Music Of Tomorrow says, “Brick Fields is by far the most soulful artist I have heard in years!”

Bio

Brick Fields is comprised of two individuals, Larry Brick and Rachel Fields, who prior to joining forces, have had their own impressive artistic history.  To better understand the force behind these two individuals, one needs to know more about them to have a full understanding and appreciation of their music today.

Larry Brick was influenced by Memphis music being relatively close to that area.  On the weekends they would observe musicians from the doorways of the clubs.  He moved to Colorado where he met another Arkansas musician Larry Womack.  Larry Brick traveled to Florida to play some shows but was invited to begin playing Gospel Music in churches.  This led him to a Christian label, Maranatha Records.  They would play for the Calvary and Vineyard Chapels.

Rachel Fields was influenced by her musical family.  She started playing flute at the age of eleven in school and left home at 16 to attend a private school in Vicksburg, Mississippi where she studied classical voice and flute.  Rachel later moved to New York City where she studied musical theater, acting and dance at The American Musical and Dramatic Academy.  She had the opportunity to play with some of the members of Big Brother and the Holding Company.  She toured with the Jerry Garcia Band along with she and a few of the JGB players toured as a group called Big Folk.  Rachel married and gave birth to twins in 2003 but in 2006 found herself as a single mother with three children and back to Arkansas.

Larry and Rachel met in Eureka Springs, Arkansas one night when Rachel was performing at an outdoor venue.  They have been together ever since and are now married giving birth to the duo Brick Fields.

Please Meet Independent Artist Kit Mann

Kit Mann

Introducing Independent Artist 
Kit Mann
Kit Mann is an independent artist I learned about on a live streaming radio broadcast I have become a fan of. (That’s a post for another day)
Kit writes and plays music that touches the soul because I believe he truly creates from his own. 
It can be his sultry blues tune like his “Cajun Queen” which will get you dancing in your chair and let you feel that southern New Orleans‘ vibe, which Kit shared with was written before Katrina when all the places he sings about were still standing. 
Or it can be his cathartic expression of what it is like to feel trapped by pain in his “Cry For Help” that first grabbed my heart-strings as he expressed what I felt, but could never find the adequate words.
Kit Mann’s music will touch something inside, and it will ignite strong emotions.
I have a strong belief that is what music should do. 

I have had the distinct pleasure of chatting with Kit; he is a humble & incredibly generous artist. I want to note and say thank you to Kit for sharing his music with free downloads for his fans. I find this quite an honor to have his music in my collection. 

Kit’s music indeed touches me. 
And isn’t that what music should do? 
Please visit Kit Mann & his music. And say hello to him & that you were there.

From Kit’s artist page:

I am a former Police Officer, Sheriff’s Deputy, EMT and Soldier.  I learned everything I could so when someone was at the worst moment of their life, they could look up, see me and know they are safe.  I have 10 songs on my first CD, “A Cry For Help”, and I have 12 recorded for my next CD “Guitar Mann”.

My motto with music is:  If I can touch one person with one song my job is done and I’m happy, then I try and do it again.  Thank You

You can visit my music page at www.reverbnation.com/kitmann  All songs are free to download and listen to.  Soft acoustic music, Blues Music, Mild Rock, Country, instrumentals and a Christmas song.
