ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Chris is a veteran player who has shared the stage with such greats as B.B. King, Albert King, Buddy Guy, and Taj Mahal. He has also recorded with popular artists such as Boz Scaggs, The Pointer Sisters, and Van Morrison. That experience is evident on Seven Rivers. The music is not overly flashy, just tight and tasty.

The first two cuts ('You Got Me By The Heart' and 'Eleven Dollar Bills') are propelled by the ripping harmonica playing of Norton Buffalo over Chris'
riffing guitar lines. The rest of the blues tracks feature great interaction between guitar and keyboards and a tight band. And while blues tracks make up the bulk of the CD, the track 'Your Father' mixes heavy percussion, 80's style chorused/delayed rhythm guitar, compressed lead guitar lines and some heavily processed near-rapping vocals. Definitely not your father's blues.
Seven Rivers also features two beautiful ballads, the chimey 'Seven Rivers' and the infectious 'Ireland'.

A selection of reviews from different publications.
"Seven Rivers"
Mark Starlin, in Better Guitar Magazine, 2000:
Imagine that your uncle is a professional musician who has toured with many famous performers over his career. He never lost his love of music and still has the chops to prove it. One day he calls you up and asks you come over to his house. When you get there he has a bunch of his old playing buddies over for a jam session. They proceed to cook through some tasty blues and blues/rock numbers with a skill that only comes from years of experience. That is the feeling of “Seven Rivers”, the latest disc by Chris Michie.

Chris has given us another satisfying CD of great tunes and tasty playing. Chris' layed-back vocal style and polished playing are as comfortable as a favorite old pair of shoes. There isn't much shredding here, but if you're a fan of good songs and tasty blues guitar playing, you'll want to get this one.

Vicente Zumel, Barcelona, Spain, 2001- Chris Michie "Seven Rivers":
Excellent piece of work coming from this genuine blues singer and guitar player that gives us a bunch of stomps, shuffles and good music. A southern heavy rocky music well played and performed. The valuable collaboration of Norton Buffalo at diatonic and chromatic harmonica (pay attention to 'Arcadian Blue') must be calmy tasted. Along the 60 cd minutes Chris gives us an splendid work, refreshing, emotional and with authentic climax that will not let you indifferent. An attractive genuine blues cd with a very special flavour.

"Brown Bagger", Texas Blues Magazine, August 2001
When listening to Chris Michie's cd release "Seven Rivers" I was enjoying some really smooth blues. Two of the first three songs, "Eleven Dollar Bills", and "Club Medication" were really good.
