Album Notes
David Essig and Rick Scott 'Double VIsion'

Two Canadian roots music veterans join forces for a dozen songs of life, love and loss seasoned with literate wit, the grace of grief and considerable kindness.

'Double VIsion' is acoustic roots music in the tradition of the Canadian singer songwriter, with one foot on the mountain and the other in the swamp, with influences of Delta blues, R&B, bluegrass and ole time country music.

David Essig is one of the world's great blues guitarists and songsmiths. His 13 guitars, steel, bass, mandolin, banjo and vocals are complemented by the lilt and groove of Scott’s Appalachian dulcimer and vocals.

Rick Scott is the lead singer of legendary BC folk trio Pied Pumkin and an internationally acclaimed family entertainer. DOUBLE VISION is is first CD for big folks in many years.

Fantastic country/blues CD
David Essig and Rick Scott have written a fantastic country/blues album with their release of “Double Vision.” Both musicians’ individual talents combine for a classic sound and all lovers of that old-time country blues sound is going to want to own this album. The moment the lush harmonies on “Willie P” wash over you, there is no doubt in your mind that this record is going to be amazing. Essig, a well known guitarist, shows off his skills quite nicely on tracks such as “Little Cross to Bear” and “Louisiana Mind.” Scott’s vocals are also well done on this record and naming just one or two songs as highlights just wouldn’t do him justice. His vocal tone screams of J.J. Cale and has a mature, rootsy vibe to it. This album, “Double Vision,” is a must have for any lover of old country blues!
