Listing Detail Tabs

2017 release from the alt. Country/Americana outfit. Led by the songwriting
and vocals of Jay Farrar, Son Volt was one of the most instrumental and
influential bands in launching the alt. Country movement of the 1990's.
A movement that was the precursor to what is now widely referred to as
Americana. The 10 songs on Notes Of Blue are inspired by the spirit of the
blues, but not the standard blues as most know it. The unique and haunting
tunings of Mississippi Fred McDowell, Skip James and Nick Drake were all points
of exploration for Farrar for this collection. The album opens with the country
soul of “Promise The World”, followed by “Back Against The Wall”, a song
that could stand alongside the great Son Volt songs of their early albums.
Farrar possesses one of the most distinctive voices in roots, rock, country or
any genre. He exudes a soulful longing combined with a wise-beyond-his-years
command that is as arresting and compelling as ever. As a songwriter,
Farrar's depth and poetic penchant has been the foundation of a thoughtful,
deep and intelligent body of work. Both attributes are on full display on Notes
Of Blue, as he touches on themes of redemption and the common struggle, both of
which are at the core of the blues. Whether you call it alt. Country, Americana,
roots rock, insurgent country or just good ol' rock 'n' roll, musical trends
appear and disappear on regular basis. Notes Of Blue is a testament to the
legacy of inspiration and creative spirit that Jay Farrar and Son Volt continue
to uphold.
