Bluessmyth Makes Their Mark With Self-Titled Blues-Rock Release
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
August 21, 2006-- Calgary, Alberta--Bluessmyth may be Canada’s answer to ZZ Top after the release of their sizzling new album Bluessmyth. In the tradition of that little old band from Texas, they are a power trio with the drive and authority that makes people stand up and take notice. In addition to the compelling musical onslaught the band so veraciously pumps out, the trio of Chris (guitar and vocals) and Jason Yaholkoski (bass) with Calvin Becker (drums) has a few things to say along the way.
This is not your typical blues about drinking, sex, and other sundry subjects, this band uses their time in the spotlight wisely to pound home a message to anyone within earshot. The primary objective of the recording is to shed light on “The Story of Emmett Till,” a true story about racism and cold-blooded murder that took place in the 1950s.The song is a three part composition that fits snugly at the mid point of the release.
The vocal style of Chris Yaholkoski is that of a man that has lived a hundred lives. His deep growling soulful style brings the lyrics point home with feeling and meaning. The music that accompanies the lyrics is as moving and expressive as the vocals provided, making it a formidable triangle of electricity and vigor that is hard to ignore.
Chris says," This CD is heavier, and in some ways more thoughtful, than our first CD 30 Pieces Of Silver. On Bluessmyth, the songs speak about permanent and universal things everyone goes through, like the choice between good and evil, the finding of your own place in this world, and of life and death. On this CD we wanted to tell stories."
