AMERICANA FUNK: A mix of Classic Rock, Early R&B, Blues and Country riffs and licks wrapped up in contemporary Soul Jazz offering a unique new yet retro familiarity that appeals to young and old alike.
After ten years of digital music composition and production, and foraging through Classic Rock, Early R&B, Blues and Country music I was familiar with from my years as a drummer and bandleader, I evolved into what I call Americana Funk which is a combination of riffs and licks from those old tunes that I wrap up in Contemporary Soul Jazz. The result is unique with a touch of a retro yet familiar “sound”.
This genre is prevalent in my last two albums, Raw (‘30s & ‘40s inspired) and Medium Rare (‘50s & ‘60s inspired), and both led to Well Done which was inspired by today’s music trends. Enjoy the groove.
