Bruce T. Carroll’s new EP, “Finding You,” is the perfect follow-up to his first official album release “Ruckus and Romance,” hailed by No Depression Magazine as “devilishly brilliant” and “intensely beautiful.”
Bruce is joined here by another outstanding group of musicians and vocalists including Adrien Reju (Vocals), producer Andy Stack (Guitar, Bass & Keyboards), David Bernz (Banjo), Sara Milonovich (Violin) & Jeremy Baum (Organ & Accordion) Brandon Morrison (Bass), Lee Falco (Drums).
Bruce T. Carroll's songwriting style relies heavily on irony and imagery as tools in the trade. While promoting the CD (Ruckus and Romance) over this past year, Bruce has shared the stage with the likes of Slaid Cleaves, Jimmy LaFave, Dan Bern, Ellis Paul, and Rita Coolidge.
“Finding you,” a six-song EP, is a sort of lyrical tone poem, with the theme of finding or regaining, something that might be missing or lost. The opening song “Fox In The Henhouse” may, or may not be, his definitive statement on the state of the union.
>>1) "Fox In The Henhouse"... this song is an impressionistic take on how it once was in America, and how it is now. 5:27 - *LANGUAGE WARNING (ass & son of a bitch)
2) "Just Like Finding You"...an evocation of heartbreak in the heartland, with a nod to Ry Cooder. 3:38
>>3) "I Will Never Leave"...written on November 9th, 2016, when every bone in my body said, "get the hell out of here." 3:51
4) "If That's Way You Feel"...a song written about falling in love when I was still in love. 3:39
5) "Who Never Felt The Need"....the only song I know that is not censorious about how it feels to fall in love with someone else's wife. 4:11
6) "If You're Still There"...the bones of this song were written when I was separated from my wife and children during Thanksgiving and Christmas while I was hospitalized many years ago for drug addiction. 5:06
All songs written by Bruce T. Carroll (BTCSongs, ASCAP). Produced by Andy Stack, co-produced by Bruce T. Carroll. Recorded and mixed by Andy Stack at Buffalo Stack Studio, Beacon, NY, mastered at Lurssen Masterin, Burbank CA, Photography by Billy Burns.
