Burnside Album Details
Eric Hisaw, Nature Of The Blues
On Nature of the Blues Eric Hisaw delivers his best album yet, picking up where his widely acclaimed 2006 release The Crosses left off. The subtle and poetic disc finds it’s greatest strength in the 13 classic new Hisaw compositions including “Cheap Living”, “Shout Out Loud” and “Tomorrow”. If all things musical seemingly grow on trees in Austin, serious songwriters of Hisaw’s caliber are not one of them. Timely and timeless themes alike come to life in lyrics which are imbued with an ethereal optimism that surmounts the wayward despair of his scenarios and characters. Nature of the Blues eschews the quasi-70’s outlaw country sound in favor of a Modern bluesy-Folk rock that will appeal to fans of Alejandro Escovedo, Joe Ely and Tom Russell and features guest appearances by Ron Flynt, Ponty Bone and “Scrappy” Jud Newcomb.
