This live recording from Norway in 2016 captures the raw soul of Willie Walker. It is as good as any of his studio recordings. This CD features the talents of Kid Andersen and special guest Rick Estrin. Using the Nightcats as the rhythm section and featuring an outstanding Norwegian horn section, the performance crackles with fire and enthusiasm. Producers Kid Andersen and Jim Pugh both are featured and always add the right flavor to the song without overpowering the vocals. Covers of Sam Cooke, The Beatles and Bobby Rush sit alongside updated versions of his 60’s classics and round out this snapshot of this talented singer in his prime.

Label: Catty Town Records | Release Year: 2016

This Seattle-based band has been at it for 14 years and this new album from Ruby Dee & The Snakehandlers, Little Black Heart, is a definitive statement. Aside from the sheer joyfulness, sexiness and bawdiness of their rockabilly-meets-Memphis-meets-Americana-meets Western swing, et al twang, it s got its serious side, as this is an album born of a near tragedy. Eight years ago, Ruby Dee had a devastating scooter accident that caused significant brain injury and trauma; she was, in many ways, forced to almost start over from scratch. It s a testimony to her courage and willfulness to be able to regain the ability to write songs (let alone do everything else that was crucial to her life) and resume her other career (she s been a successful restauranteur in Seattle as well). Recorded in Austin and kicking hard, this album sounds as raw as it feels in a great, natural way.
