ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"You don't sing like Elvis but you're the best songwriter I've heard in ten years." —Sam Phillips, Sun Records

"Americana, Shmericana. That's just another flavor of the month pigeon-holing term. Listen to Mr. Hamner's tumultuous take on Muddy Water's delta apocalypse classic "Two Trains." Unfortunately, that's not on the album. You'll have to catch him live to witness that song. Lowry Hamner plays rock 'n roll!"—-Will Bedard, Music Critic, The Record Review

So why is he profiled in an acoustic blues guide? Because anyone who has ever heard him play the blues will attest that Hamner’s blues are as deep as it gets. He usually brings the house down with his fiery renditions of the classic country blues. He may be eclectic, playing Americana, folk and Alt-Country, but the blues is his essence. Equally versed as a fingerpicker and slide player, Hamner’s approach to the old blues is rooted in a lifelong intrinsic connection to the music. Still, when he gets out the old Epiphone that he has had since he was a teenager, he kicks out the truest blues you’ll ever hear. There is an ethereal, gritty feeling and profoundly moving sincerity and authenticity to Hamner’s blues. This is not something he learned. This is something he is and has always been. —-The Country Blues.com

I call it 'Crossroads Music.' It's an intersection where a variety of different influences meet. I'm possessed by it." —-Lowry Hamner
