Daddy Long Legs
New York City’s most blueswailing trio, have been spreading their gospel throughout the globe since the release of their debut album ‘EVIL EYE ON YOU’ (2012/Norton Records). Now the boys return with their second full length offering, ‘BLOOD FROM A STONE’ – 13 stunning new studio tracks produced by Matt Verta-Ray (Heavy Trash), which sees the band maintain the wild, raw energy of their first record, but reveal a growth in both songwriting and production. The end result is the original, unbeatable, revival-tent mayhem that alternately sweats, bleeds, shouts and stomps real-deal roots and blues. Daddy Long Legs’ new album, ‘BLOOD FROM A STONE’ is released June 10th through Norton Records – you too shall be converted!
It’s a weathered, twangy upright piano straining the old barn floorboards beneath it, stoic and waiting for the next soulful awakening. It’s the steel rails that restrain the power of an electrifying guitar like a freight train cutting across the vast and varied countryside. It is an homage to old America: sophisticated, meticulously crafted, and tough as shit. It’s an energetic fever pitch, channeled into the razor-sharp focus and discerning taste of a connoisseur.
J.K. Vanderbilt is a true son of the Hudson Valley with his feet firmly planted on both sides of the tracks. You may find him professionally preparing drinks or lovingly making food as Josh Rosenmeier. Share a meal with him and be prepared to feast into the early morning. A wild spirit of electricity splitting at the seams, unharnessed yet still refined, he doesn’t write songs because he wants to. He does it because he has to. You can hear it in every syllable of every sung word, in the intensity of every instrument (all played by Vanderbilt himself). This is "How To Build A Fire," J.K. Vanderbilt's debut album, recorded and produced by Chris Hansen and Matt Pond and being released in early 2017, and “Shine a Light” is the first single.
