Album Notes
Lightnin Malcolm has come to exemplify the modern day Deep Blues Guitar groove. Its a sound which traces back to the origins of blues, when a single guitarist rocked the house all night long. When these ancient droning patterns consisting of bass, rhythm, and lead syncopated together are plugged into modern sound systems and teamed up with driving drum beats, Malcolms guitar becomes larger than life, bringin state of the art primal Mississippi Juke Joint Blues to the big stage.

In 2009 Malcolm won Blues Music Award for Best New Artist and toured the world with Cedric Burnside on drums. In 2011 he released the critically acclaimed album RENEGADE, a true showcase for Malcolms developing songwriting and vocals, infusing soul, reggae, hip hop and rock into his hill country sound. 2011 also saw Malcolm serving as “musical director” on Hubert Sumlin and Honeyboy Edwards final tour of their lives, which also included rock band Big Head Todd and the Monsters.

Released in the spring of 2013, "Rough Out There" contains 14 original songs that continue to push the hill country sound into a modern fusion that displays the many talents of Lightnin Malcolm yet continues to hold true to the roots of that style of music. Featured on "Rough Out There" is Grammy award-winning artist Luther Dickinson, playing slide guitar on several tracks. Other guest artists include inspirational rapper Larry P. and 15-year-old drumming sensation, Stud.

Stud is the grandson of blues legend T-Model Ford. "I have known Stud since he was one, he grew up watching me and T-Model play all over the world. Now, he's totally kicking ass on the drums, giving me the best match for my music that I've ever found," shares Malcolm.
