Acoustic Blues trailblazer Lloyd Spiegel is back at Burrinja by popular demand!
After completing a massive tour for the 2019 album ‘Cut and Run’ Lloyd is back for more in 2020.
From the fiery boogie opener ‘Any Second Now’, through to the dark acoustic closing of ‘Old Wounds’, Cut and Run takes the listener on a trip from honest acoustic ballads to searing Blues Rock and captures Spiegel at his best as a vocalist and guitarist while providing some of his best lyrical work to date.
The new album, along with This Time Tomorrow (2017) and last year’s Backroads concludes a trilogy of albums and represents the fruits of an intensely creative time for the Melbourne-based bluesman.
Says Spiegel, “the last three years I’ve written one album while touring the previous so it’s a natural progression that each group of songs is a response to the last. Cut and Run has a positivity and clarity in it that for me, resolves a great deal of the questions I asked myself on the last two albums. It’s definitely the end of a chapter for me both musically and personally.”
Groovy lead track ‘Track Her Down’ has received extensive airplay on ABC, Double J and community stations nationally, hitting number 2 on the AMRAP regional chart and set up a buzz for the new album’s arrival, and Lloyd recently score three Australian Blues ‘Chain’ Awards for the release.
