Album Notes
Kelowna, British Columbia’s Rick Halisheff - a.k.a. Poppa Dawg - turns in a solid set of traditional Blues penned by the excellent guitarist and singer.

‘Nobody Here Feels Sorry For You’ bounces between Hokum and Jump; ‘Croc Talkin’, a greasy, minor-key funk instrumental features some of the snarkiest wah tone ever waxed; and ‘This Man’ is a towering deep soul number. ‘I Ain’t Leavin’ shuffles with Stevie Ray Vaughan power, ‘1, 2, Gone’ swings like Ronnie Earl’s best work and ‘Cool Little Number’ is reminiscent of Little Charlie and Rick Estrin’s hipper stuff.

Great singing, tones, playing, songs and a refreshing variety of approaches make Dawg’s self-release ‘Same Dog, New Suit a winner.

Poppa Dawg is one of those ‘one-man-army’ crusaders that Blues (and all indie music) depends on so dearly. The concept of devoting one’s life to music with the Joy Factor being the no. 1 goal is something that the ‘greed-driven’ just can’t grasp. There’s always hope for music and mankind when there are crusaders like Rick in abundance and in some places (outside of North America) people who devote their lives to making and promoting blues are revered and respected. Besides leading his own band and making his own Blues, Poppa Dawg is ‘The Man’ when it comes to Interior, British Columbia. He keeps everything going, connecting clubs with artists, helping touring bands get gigs in Kelowna or Nelson, encourages venues to at least try live music and runs a website/e-mail newsletter that keeps us all informed. So, even outside of a recording context he is invaluable and irreplaceable.

Dawg has an easy-on-the-ears, natural blues voice and his guitar work betrays decades of influences from Johnny Watson to Elvin Bishop. Tasty and tasteful. But, it’s his song writing that really surprises. Great lyrics and humorous poetry abound set to catchy riffs designed for the sacroiliac. Several tracks are very memorable and worthy of ‘borrowing’, so let’s hope Dawg gets these to some ‘stars’ for exposure and royalties.
