Album Notes
This long awaited album "Peace & Distortion" solidifies Spacek's reputation as the "godfather of San Antonio Blues". His guitar playing is in fine form sporting a unique sound weaving blues, rock, and soul together with an explosive Texas punch. His music captures a fire and soul emerging from fine players who came before and those in the world today serving up captivating sounds; with a distinctive style that's all his own--a style that, "is a cross between Jeff Beck's muscular jazz - rock approach and Eric Clapton's more fluid lead lines."

The album was recorded at Edit Point Studio in San Antonio and mixed by engineer extraordinaire Kelly Donnelly at Studio Plush in Austin. Kelly was able to work on the project in and around his busy schedule with guitar great, Eric Johnson. As one of best mix engineers anywhere, he pulls out those unique guitar tones as if the listener is right there in studio.

Jimmy's songwriting is up front and center with tracks chanting typical hard line blues themes, but dig deeper on "Broken Man"; about a military veteran who finds himself out on the street. And "Peacemaker" echoes the never ending quest for peace. A plea for better understanding of our common goals and needs are heard on "Division Fare" with a sweet Telecaster crying notes that drive this message home. The notorious West Side Horns notch it up (with members) Al Gomez (Trumpet) and Henry Rivas (Sax) on "People (Rain & Shine)" and "South Side San Antone", the latter being a tribute to the artists that Jimmy heard and was influenced by growing up on the Southeast side of SA, that feeling described in the line--"I learned to listen to the heart and play from the soul".

Jimmy Spacek has certainly payed his dues with tours across the water, four other noteworthy releases under his belt, and a "shared the stage with" list that includes some of the very best players and artists: B.B. KING, JOHNNY WINTER, ROY BUCHANAN, ALBERT COLLINS, JIMMIE VAUGHAN, JOE WALSH, DELBERT McCLINTON, LEON RUSSEL, GEORGE THOROGOOD, NEAL BLACK, JAMES COTTON, JOHNNY COPELAND, BARBARA LYNN, CHRIS DUARTE, LONNIE MACK and RICK DERRINGER.

This new batch of distinctive music on "Peace & Distortion" affirms this guitarist as one of the elite players from the "Lone Star" state.
