MTV news article released today.
“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!
