Album Notes
“The Rumble Strip”—Preacher Boy’s 11th album—is a genre-defying collection of disruptive 21st-century Alt. Blues that pairs old-school Americana ingredients such as National slide guitar, banjo, harmonica, upright bass, and Telecaster, with wicked trash can drums, spooky organ, and a rich tapestry of found sounds and sonic effects.

The album builds a musical bridge that connects early innovators such as Captain Beefheart and Ry Cooder with modern indie blues acts like Fantastic Negrito and The Record Company. The influence of 90s-era innovators such as Soul Coughing, Beck, Morphine, Nick Cave, and 16 Horsepower can be heard in the album’s moody production, hard-edged aesthetic, and eclectic textures.

Preacher Boy’s signature gritty vocals and densely narrative lyrics complete the tapestry, and the end result is a funky noir-scape that serves to both reinforce and redefine the raw and poetic power of the blues tradition.
