Terry Robb releases new album 'Confessin' My Dues' March 1
NiaSounds has announced the new album and release concert for Terry Robb, hailed as one of the finest fingerstyle blues guitarists on the international scene. "Confessin' My Dues" marks the second release from Robb on NiaSounds, and his 15th solor recording.
"Confessin' My Dues" will be available worldwide March 1, 2019. That evening Robb will give a free, solo in-store performance at Music Millennium at 6 p.m. Then March 8 at 9 p.m. NiaSounds and the Cascade Blues Association will present the "Confessin' My Dues" release concert with Robb's full band at The Secret Society Ballroomn. The release kicks off Robb's spring tour of the Pacific Northwest, California and British Columbia.
In "Confessin' My Dues," Robb draws on his deep knowledge of Delta blues, ragtime and swing in 13 original compositions ranging from blistering instrumental blues and melodic ragtime fingerpicking to soulful singing backed by a powerhouse rhythm section. At The Secret Society Ballroom, he will be joined onstage by renowned jazz musicians Gary Hobbs and Dave Captein, whose skillful playing is featured throughout the album, along with blues guitarist Adam Scramstad.
"I wanted a modern take on familiar themes without leaving tradition behind," Robb said. "I've been wanting to record with Gary and Dave for a long time. They are world class musicians, and I knew they would bring a fresh and unique approach to what I was after."
"Confessin' My Dues" will be available March 1 at Music Millennium and online retailer and streaming services such as Amazon, Apple Music and Pandora. Tickets for the March 8 release concert are on sale now, $22 in advance at secretsociety.net or terryrobb.com, and $25 at the door.
