ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"Natural Remedies" is the second full-length album from St. Louis' own supremely soulful singer/songwriter himself - the genuine article: Al Holliday.

Here we have a man who is undoubtedly, as Thelonious Monk liked to say, most like himself - and a band - that hits like a sledgehammer.

The record was cut live to analog tape by the nine young men and women that are The East Side Rhythm Band - using equal parts blood, sweat and tears with equal parts Fried Chicken and Potato Salad.

The musicality of this group is a truly inspired, natural blend of sounds - stirred by the raw power of Joe Cocker, the soulful reverence of Mahalia Jackson, the organic artistry of Van Morrison, the down-home essence of Taj Mahal, the timeless songwriting of Leon Russell, all played with the edge that only comes from The East Side's own: Ike and Tina Turner.

"Natural Remedies" is a true revelation of an artist - and an undeniable document of the crew that is The East Side Rhythm Band - teeming with striking liveliness in every cut and searing performances, captured live in the studio.

Certainly not a bad follow-up to 2013's "Made it Through the Mill, Again" - a "startling debut from a 25-year old white guy singing like a sanctified soul shouter." (Riverfront Times, Christian Schaeffer) - which since it's release, Holliday has traveled across the country with the band, been named St. Louis' "Best R&B Artist" and "Best Male Vocalist", and has come on - hands down - as one of the region's hottest acts - and judging by what they are puttin' down: Sho' ain't no doubt - they' temperature is risin'.
