Michael Tarbox CD release
Friday, April 9, 2010
"Best known for the stomping swamp blues, gospel and Appalachia hillbilly-tinged roots rock of his Tarbox Ramblers, Boston area singer-songwriter-guitarist Michael Tarbox takes a bit of a detour with his new solo disc. A decidedly more acoustic affair, recorded in Nashville and filled out with the occasional piano, pedal steel, fiddle and trumpet - My Primitive Joy puts Tarbox's voice and acoustic finger picking front and centre, along with his shapely, dark, fateful songwriting." Michael is celebrating the release of his new record with 4 Ontario dates and will be playing two sets, one featuring the new songs and one songs of the Tarbox Ramblers.
"The way the Ramblers lay down their backroads grit and raw hillbilly-rock jive, you're unlikely to hear a more genuine blast of sandpaper rhythm and roots." Boston Herald
