ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Mississippi John Doude is blues, rock, folk and country all rolled into one, yet none of these would quite describe his unique sound. Listening to his music conjures images of abandoned shacks overrun with kudzu, beat-up pickup trucks barreling down dirt roads, and old-time tent revivals. More bluesy than blues, John’s music is undeniably genuine and pure. “…at some point in my development , I quit trying to be anything in particular, and just let whatever comes naturally happen,” says John, “Truly inspired music flows through you, not from you.”
At shows, people invariably stomp their feet, clap, and whoop and holler a lot. They just can’t seem to help it. The steady throb of the kick drum is infectious, and the swampy sound of an old dobro and finger-picked guitar just gets people excited. From mountain bluegrass to delta blues, his raw, stripped down roots music takes you back to where American music began. Whether he’s performing as a one-man band, or with his rotating back up band, “Skinny Vittles”, John always provides great entertainment.
Growing up in Mississippi exposed John to a unique blend of music and culture, which reflects in his songs. From church, where his parents led the singing every time the doors were open, to the juke joints he would slip off to on the weekends, music was always his therapy, his escape. “I was actually discouraged from listening to blues, rock, and country by my family. That’s probably why I love that music so much.”
A rebel from an early age, John continues to do things his own way. With a degree in Recording Industry from MTSU, he opted to start his own record label and recording studio. He now records and produced his own music, as well as others’, and is steadily developing a loyal underground following. With his unique songwriting style, and “do things my own way” attitude, he is rapidly earning a reputation as one of the up and coming artists to watch.

John Book, Music For America

Homemade and proud
Mississippi John Doude is a one-man powerhouse, playing almost all of the instruments on this album, a great testament to what is being known as Americana. All of the songs here are very personal, feeling like pages from Doude's private diary, and whether he plays an acoustic guitar, a slide, a dobro, or drums, he knows how to do all of it with precision.

His stories are bold and he sings them in a manner which feels as if he is singing to you, or perhaps making the listener feel as if they are singing his words, which in turn may become yours. In songs such as "Cornbread Time", "Hangman's Rope", and "Rollin' Like A Freight Train", his voice has a lot of conviction and even when his vocal approach is by-the-book, or it sounds as if he's trying to catch up with a chord change, you hold on and hang on because you know he is a storyteller, and one who deserves to be heard and acknowledged. There's rock, blues, country, folk, and even a bit of worldly flavor. When he has a story to tell, he does so with passion. When he sits down on the patio to jam as the rain falls, he does this too, as he does with J. Adams on djembe in "Drunk Buddha", or as he does in "Katrina", he lays on a bluesy electric guitar solo where you can feel a bit of the sorrow and hurt that is expressed in his playing.

The CD cover has him just playing an acoustic guitar and the drums (which he often plays at the same time, one-man band style), but his music is not as simple as the cover suggests. Homemade and proud!
