ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Atlanta-based musician returns from extended Australian sabbatical with much-anticipated, introspective and moving new solo album

(Atlanta, Georgia) The last time that many of his fellow Georgians heard from musician Blair Lott, the jovial singer/bandleader was the frontman for the rock ensemble known as Ruben Kincaid. Since then, Blair has lived in Australia, written and recorded a new solo album, and gathered together an ensemble of seasoned side-men who are now proudly known as The Blair Lott Band.

Rooms and Boxes, Blair's first-ever solo CD, is slated for release on October 3. Several years ago Blair bought himself a one-way plane ticket to Australia, where he took his time carefully writing and recording tracks in Melbourne with able assistance from Aussie producer/rock star Michael Spiby (leader of a popular and critically acclaimed roo rock outfit, The Badloves). Michael brought his passion for Southern American rock and Gospel to the table, creating a rich backdrop of Americana (or, perhaps, Australiana) to the sessions, without letting the songs drift into blues-rock clichés. Blairs writing on Rooms and Boxes is focused and at times deeply personal, with a song-to-song continuity that suggests a concept album or even a movie soundtrack.

One especially moving number, Clear, is dedicated to the memory of slain American journalist Daniel Pearl (executed by Iraqi insurgents while covering the war overseas), a gesture made at the request of a close personal friend of Pearls. The entire collection is dedicated to bassist Stuart Speed, a well-known and much-loved sideman among Australian musicians, who recently passed away after a prolonged illness.

Rooms and Boxes started out as a personal release but has since been picked up by GGP records and distributed through Select-O-Hits, both of which operate out of Memphis, TN. Select-O-Hits was co-founded by Sam Phillips, the legendary label boss of Sun Records. It is fitting and proper that the Southern-steeped Rooms and Boxes has become part of this longtime tradition.

Rooms and Boxes first single, The Promise, is already picking up steam on commercial radio stations throughout the USA.

Allen Vance

Solid and mature
A solid mix of slow to medium tempo ballads
and minor key and jazz-influenced rockers, delivered
in Blair Lott's appealing baritone.

The overall effect is one of maturity and control,
with Dying in Time and She Touches Water providing
clever mutual cross-references. The Promise, likely to be
a first radio cut, bookends the set nicely (I preferred
the final-track "Atlanta Version" - but maybe that's
because I'm biased by living there...).
