Album Notes
Lightning Hall. A native of the Gulf Coast city of Galveston, Texas and West and South-Southwest U.S. He sings, plays acoustic guitar, dobro and harmonica as a soloist. He early on acquired a love of acoustic blues and writes and performs original songs influenced by "folk blues" and other styles. Mary Ann Brandon, of Bluesland Productions says "As a songwriter he tells stories of broken relationships, struggle and survival. He paints vivid portraits of the the lives of his characters with words." And he is no stranger to broken relationships, struggle and survival. That qualifies as blues, no? He performs and plays guitar in spite of burn injuries to his hands he received when just eight years old in a brush fire. His brother and both parents were severely injured as well.
This collection of songs is all original, but live he also performs the songs of traditional acoustic blues masters like Lightning Hopkins, Big Bill Broonzy and Muddy Waters and some more contemporary blues and blues-rock artists. His live musical performance has been described as "First rate" by Ken Saydak, a well known Chicago based bluesman who has worked with performers like Johnny Winter, Otis Rush, and Lonnie Brooks. He has also been described as a "very compelling blues artist" with "impeccable guitar work and a soulful voice" by other blues-biz insiders and local promoters.
