Talk about… Wamp Music.

MTV news article released today.

Taylor Hicks Planning to ‘Wamp’ It Up With New Sound On Debut LP.

There is a sound that I’ve kinda thought about and it’s called ‘modern wamp,’ ” Taylor Hicks said Monday during a break from recording his debut album. “It’s like swamp meets boogie meets jazz meets hip-hop. It’s cool


A few interesting bits:

Bryan Adams penned one of Hicks’ favorite tracks, and pedal-steel master Robert Randolph is playing on another.”- I love the sound of that!

Although the track list is still being finalized —… — he plans to include some songs he’s written over the years. – Nice

I’m going to put some horns on the road with me and have this killer soul band.”

The mentality I’ve always had is if you were gonna take a date to eat and then to a concert, where would you want to go?” Hicks explained. “And for me personally that’s music rooms, small theaters. I just feel like the ambiance of the room — for instance the Fox Theatre in Atlanta has the great starry sky — I think all of that is good for the music.”- Exciting!

    Funny. I’m sure Taylor’s just being Taylor, but it’s so cool to hear him saying things in interviews that we’ve all been begging for on the boards and blogs! I’m too humble to think he reads all of the online stuff and then drops these things in interviews just to make us happy. But, gee, it’s sure working! Ah, coincidence. or not. This is all good.

    The FOX in ATLANTA would be so cool!!!! That way I wouldn’t have to drive/fly a gazillion miles — just drive in from the Atlanta suburbs. Hint, hint, hint…

    Maybe if I think “Bamboo Room, Lake Worth, Florida” to myself over and over and over again, Taylor will get the message. 🙂
