ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Texas Voodoo Blues

Richard Cagle & the Voodoo Choir

The vision/concept for this album came to me several years ago. I knew I wanted to produce a Blues album, but instead of putting together a band, writing the songs, rehearsing and then recording, I wanted to do it all at once. I wanted it to be a true Zen moment. So, I invited some of the best musicians in Houston to join me in this adventure. The simple concept for each session is; four of us walk into our garage studio without knowing what we’re going to play. “Not caring about yesterday or what’s going to happen tomorrow. It’s just about what happens this moment”. In most of the sessions, the players had never met each other, much less ever played together. We wrote the song right then, and turned on the recorder to capture the results. Streaming our parts is the best way to describe it. Each of the songs on this album took an average of two and a half hours to write and record. After the initial songs were written and recorded, I brought in Rick Thompson to play keys on all of them, Gary Sapone played Harmonica on two of the tunes, James Hoover replaced my bass on Uptown/Downtown, and Gideon Cheshire helped me fine tune the lyrics. I’m proud of the outcome of this project and I hope you enjoy it as much as we did creating it. The Blues is all about feeling, and on this project, we all poured our hearts into it. Godspeed!
Rich

Richard Cagle & the Voodoo Choir is rocking the house with their

Unstoppable Texas style Rocking Blues
Richard Cagle & the Voodoo Choir is rocking the house with their recently released CD, “Texas Voodoo Blues” chocked full of unstoppable vibrant and energetic songs creatively crafted with down home Blues and an attitude of hard rock. Cagle’s vocals are rootsy and melodic while his exceptionally fine quality cast of musicians clearly defines what chemistry is all about within a band. This group brings infectious bouncy bluesy beats and well written lyrics to life on “Sally Sue,” You Got the Shake,” or “Sweet Marie” which also features an awesome guitar solo. Bringing the beat down a notch, “Black Hearted Woman” still retains an aura of bluesy feel with soulful keys, softer drums, and sweet walking bass line. Check out the guitars on “Mystery Moon” as it playfully interplays with the gruff and tough vocals. Fans of Stevie Ray Vaugh and ZZ Top will want to add the superb collection of Texas style rockin’ Blues of “Texas Voodoo Blues” as this album will surely please and is well worth listening to.
