Album Notes
Between Life & Death shows Studebaker John at the top of his lyrical and musical powers. The album incorporates many styles and influences – blues-rock, improvisational jam and groove, New Orleans R&B, West Coast swing, and, of course, Chicago Blues – and has a stripped down live-in-the studio feel that is true to Studebaker John’s stage performances.

Destiny cannot be denied. Remarkably, the recording session for Between Life & Death came about by accident.

“Shortly after returning from a month long tour of the UK, I was called into a recording session, along with drummer Earl Howell & bassist Felton Crews, by a well-known blues artist who shall remain nameless. We arrived at the session to find that it was canceled because this artist had over-indulged at a local pub and was in no shape to work. We seized the opportunity handed to us to record these songs, which we had been playing daily while on the road. After two years of planning and frustration, the record was completed in one marathon live-in-the-studio session that felt "just right" to everyone involved. I hope you enjoy listening to these songs as much I did writing and recording them.”--Studebaker John

“As a songwriter and musician, Studebaker John has emerged as a major creative force in the world of the blues today. With the release of Between Life & Death, John unveils his fully-realized, progressive variation on the blues. Ahead of the pack, with vision and foresight, creating a new standard and landscape for this music’s future… with John at the wheel, the future is now!”
….Michael Dixon, Blues DJ & writer
