Album Notes
The second album from Scissormen is an acoustic tour-de-force featuring the slide guitar and vocals of bandleader Ted Drozdowski. It's 11 tracks resonate from the Mississippi hills to the urban canyons, spanning the history and heart of the blues, adding new songs to the Scissormen canon and borrowing tunes from the likes of Muddy Water and Screamin' Jay Hawkins.

“One guitar, a drum kit, two guys blasting through 100 years of music history to get to the future. If you see Scissormen and don't discover the roots of a classic song or a new favorite by them then check your pulse. They're phenomenal.”
- Wayne Andrews, executive director
Arkansas Blues and Heritage Festival

“Drozdowski is one of the blues' most distinctive and exciting stylists - a stalwart slide guitarist bringing some contemporary perspective and technical flamboyance to vintage sounds.”
- Ron Wyn,
Nashville City Paper

“Like the Black Keys, Scissormen leader Ted Drozdowski is a white guy raised in a depressed Northern city who's drawn to the haunting and primal sounds of the Delta. But while the sound of his hipster counterparts from Akron bears a certain retro fetishism, Drozdowski's music is a little more forthright and a little less, well, du jour. It's also raw, hypnotic and occasionally jarring.”
- Jack Silverman, editor
Nashville Scene
