Country Music Icon Philip Claypool Releases 'Come On Back Home' - His Most Personal, Revealing Album Yet!


Philip Claypool is the real deal. His passion, songwriting and drive to connect to the listener is why he is a success!

Nashville, TN - Much to the excitement of his fans worldwide, legendary country music singer/songwriter Philip Claypool has released 'Come On Back Home', a new album poised to be his most personal, revealing album yet. Says Philip, “I wanted to do an album that expressed the core personality of who I am as a singer on both fun and emotional levels. I also, wanted the album to exhibit songs of inspiration, and on the other side of the coin my love of a good gut-buster honkytonk song.”

The album is produced by veteran hit producer Michael Lloyd. Lloyd has produced more than 100 gold and platinum records, as well as many number one singles. Says Michael, “I've been a record producer for many years, and it's been my good fortune to have been involved with many great artists and projects. It's not often that an artist comes along who is special – but Philip Claypool is truly special. I'm amazed by his talent. He has a unique way of touching you with his passion and emotion, and on his latest CD, 'Come On Back Home', he's at his best.”

As with his previous releases, Philip is writer on the bulk of the album's material and he teamed up with his pal and co-writer Jeff Silbar (“Wind Beneath My Wings”) on many of the key tracks. Most every song has a real personal life story behind it.

The album also features two additional cuts from top Nashville songsmiths and a stellar rendition of Eddie Arnold's “You Don’t Know Me” that Claypool delivers with true Memphis soul. Philip adds, “My producer Michael Lloyd and I assembled the very best players in Nashville and we cut 14 tracks in only 2 days. I had worked with most of the guys on my previous projects and it was like a band getting back together. It was natural and most of all fun! Many of the vocals on the album were cut live on the first or second take.

Philip Claypool describes himself as a Southern-singer-songwriter. Growing up in Memphis, TN, he was raised with a love of music, wildlife conservation, hunting and the outdoors. With many musical influences ranging from gospel to rock and country, Claypool pulls together many diverse techniques in his music, but the main defining quality of his music is his emotional and passionate performances. He puts his heart and soul into everything he records and performs. 'Come On Back Home' is all about the real Claypool, not just another polished, picture-perfect mold of the stereotypical country artist. In this album, fans will be able to see the full revealing of the honest, transparent and passionate Philip Claypool they've come to know and love.

“Philip Claypool is the real deal. A man that loves what he does and does it well. He has passion when he sings and not only takes the listener to a special place but he is right there with them. Every song is life, his life, your life and my life. We can all relate to every word.” - George Davis, KBXB Sikeston MO.

“This former Curb artist of the 1990s is back with a chin-up, positive-think rocker. I love his drawling phrasing on this driving, relentless production. The icing on the cake is that it is extremely well-written.” - Robert K. Oermann, Music Row

In support of the new album, Philip plans to tour on regional and national levels. There are lyric videos out on YouTube for the singles “Strong One” and “Come On Back Home”, as well as a fun homemade video of the track “Jack Daniel and Mr. Jim Beam”.

Rock Review: Aunt Mary-New Dawn

Release Date: 12th February 2016 Label: Wind-Up Website
Aunt Mary, as a name, somehow suggests an “older” band and it came as no real surprise to find that they are a Norwegian prog band from the 70’s. The band were considered by many to be one of the best prog bands in Norway with their brand of music a mixture of heavy hard rock tunes plus clear indications of a more symphonic nature, although that only really showed itself on their 3rd, and last, studio album, Janus, in 1973. Last that is, until now, with the release of New Dawn. This would appear to be an apt title for a release which follows 24 years after an album of blues covers, released in 1992. 

At their height, Aunt Mary were “up there” with the likes of Deep Purple, Ten Years After, King Crimson, Jethro Tull and many more. After the release of Janus in 1973, the band split up but did a few sporadic appearances, as well as releasing the blues covers album mentioned earlier.

3 years ago, the Norwegian guitar legend and producer, …

Alternative Rock: mariaFausta -Million Faces

Release Date: November 12, 2017
Label: Independent
Website mariaFausta is a European alternative rock vocalist. Recently her album Million Faces became available. I knew that she would probably sing with an accent and she does. Here is the thing with that aspect of a recording artist, either you cannot get past it or you like it, there is no middle ground. After that process and you decide you like it, you realize it is part of the charisma and make up of what the artist is presenting. For my ears things landed on the positive side in all aspects.

Maria’s sound is a varied approach that works very well. It certainly is alternative rock and one of the most original and different albums I have heard in 2017. I hear a ton of instrumental music and sometimes find it difficult with redundancy regarding my words. That is something that all writers worry about. You are cognizant of that fact at all times. Well let me tell you, this music was a total joy to hear and then have the opportunity to p…

New Age Instrumental Review: Anaya Music-AONKI – Gateway of Love (Cosmic New Age Music)

Release Date: February 2, 2018 Label: Anaya Music Website
Around this time a year ago I had the experience of listening to Anaya Music and providing coverage of Eternity.  It was an uplifting experience and a memorable listen as I recall.
Now with February drawing closer AONKI – Gateway of Love (Cosmic New Age Music) will arrive.
Once again, the recording features several exceptional collaborations between Anaya Music and a live virtual symphony orchestra recorded in the heart of Prague, the capital of the Czech republic. The orchestra combines members of the finest ensembles in Prague, including the Czech Philharmonic.
I think they should rename the orchestra to “The Live Spiritual Orchestra.” If you have been exposed to Anaya Music you will understand what that means. If this is your first journey with this music you will find out very quickly. Either way, this is spiritually uplifting music that leaves a smile on your soul. It’s like the term digital footprint, there is an everlasting m…
