"Beat Up Pushed Around"

beat up pushed image smI am proud of my latest work, “Beat Up Pushed Around,”  (BUPA). I recorded it at Matthew Knights' County Line Sound Studio using his band, The Witnesses, composed of drummer Kevin Heuer and bassist Don McGraw, and the muscular bang of Knight’s guitar. It’s Knights who produced, mixed and engineered the effort. I want to say how much I value keys man, Brad Durden. I contacted Brad, out of the blue, after about 25 years and asked him if he would play on it. I didn’t think he would, but as I said to him, I thought it was worth a shot. And, it was. It’s his distinctive keys that make the record sound unique - especially his piano work, the Fender Rhodes rolling, rolling rolling. Brad is the key man for former Lynyrd Skynyrd drummer, Artimus Pyle.
