The Soupbone Blues Band has three songs already recorded and 14 more ready to get polished up for their follow up CD.

“We just want to take a breath and savor the moment then get right back to recording again. We are still actively gigging and rehearsing to support the CD locally and throughout the province.

“You can’t rest on your laurels, you’ve got to keep digging,” says Grosso.

The album was recorded last fall in Grosso’s rehearsal studio in Williams Lake in a marathon session with professional recording engineers Marcel Keatting-Olivier and Lorne Seaton from Vancouver.

It was then mixed in another session in Vancouver and released on the Chilli Dog Records label.

Rather than recording individual tracks, the band recorded the album “live from the floor” with everyone playing together in the tradition of the great blues artists because they wanted the album to have that authentic live feeling to it.

The band has also recently been added to the Nanaimo Blues Festival this summer and will be hanging with some heavyweights in the blues world including The Downchild Blues Band.

“The CD is really opening up some doors for us. We put our heart and soul into this thing and it’s nice to see the hard work pay off. The guys were on top of their game for this project and I’m proud of them all,” says Grosso.

The CD is available at Sight & Sound, Audio Video Unlimited, The Station House Gallery, and Cool Clear Water.
