Album Notes
In his latest album, Grainy Days, Jon Waterman showcases 13 of his lyrically compelling original songs that reveal an exciting and eclectic mix of classic rock and roots. The styles in the collection range from the driving, electric blues-folk rock of "Walk As If You Won" and the Americana influenced "Thing For My Guitar" to the reggae inspired "Born That Way." Lyrically the songs range from seemingly simple pop song sentiments about love and need to songs that make subtel and not-so-subtle statements about social justice and the human experience. Several of the songs tell true stories- a child actor in the title track and a Tin Pan Alley songwriter in "Hughie Cannon's Blues." Others tell stores which could be true- a truck driver with a neurological disorder in "Tourettes Tommy" and a fictionalized tale of racial prejudice and injustice in "Mean Ol Debil Jones." Some of the artists that have influenced and inspired Jon Waterman are the Rolling Stones, the Grateful Dead, John Fogerty, the Kinks, Golden Earring, Peter Gabriel, Bob Dylan, Eric Burdon and War, the Pogues, the Clash, Lou Reed, Emmylou Harris, Gram Parsons, Jim Croce, Hank Williams Sr., Duke Ellington, Johnny Cash, Artie Shaw, Benny Goodman, Bobby Bare, Louis Armstrong, Fats Waller, Manfred Mann, Fairport Convention, Willie Nelson and many others.
