TOMMY TALTON NEW CD "SOMEWHERE SOUTH OF EDEN"

NEW RELEASE
Tommy Talton/“Somewhere South of Eden”

Tommy Talton is a familiar name to many music aficionados, especially fans of Southern rock. Talton figured heavily into that part of music history co-founding the band “Cowboy” who was signed by Capricorn Records. Seems they were discovered by none other than old friend Duane Allman, who, as legend has it, banged on their door at 7 a.m. one morning and asked to hear some new songs.

It's clear that Tommy Talton is still making music for the sheer joy of it. He manages to perform with both the energy of a music-obsessed kid and the restraint of a seasoned veteran-because, at heart, he is both!

On this latest collection, Tommy has gathered together some great musicians, both old and new friends, to help bring to life these songs that have in his words, been “pulled from the sky as they were floating by.”

Lots of musical territory is covered in these 11 cuts, from Latin- flavored instrumental “Poblano,” to Bluegrass-funky “Don't Go Away Sore,” through the novelette title track “Somewhere South of Eden.”

Tommy is covering the guitar parts and vocals while the foundation of all tracks is drummer Bryan Owings [Tony Joe White, Buddy Miller, Emmy Lou Harris] and bassist Chris Donohue [Emmy Lou Harris, Lucinda Williams, Alison Krauss]. Foundation tracks were recorded by David Pinkston, in Hendersonville, Tn.
Keyboardists Chuck Leavell [Rolling Stones, Eric Clapton, Allman Bros.], Spooner Oldham [Muscle Shoals “Swamper” fame], Ike Stubblefield [Motown organist extraordinaire], Steve Conn [singer-songwriter, Sonny Landreth, Bonnie Raitt], John Ginty [soloist and organist with Dixie Chicks], Kenny Head [John Barry, Georgia Satellites, Tommy Talton Band] have contributed on various tracks, along with Jeff Mosier on banjo, [Blueground Undergrass, Col. Bruce Hampton]. Old friends Randall Bramblett/ Tom Ryan [Shawn Mullins] add saxophones on the first track “I Can't Believe It.” Vocalist, Deborah Reece adds soulful harmonies to three of the tracks here and Markham White [engineer/mixer for the album] adds guitar parts on two of the tracks.

After two critically acclaimed releases in the last few years, “Let’s Get Outta Here” Oct. 2012,and, “Until After Then,” Oct. 2014, with HittinTheNote Records, the new release “Somewhere South of Eden” is certainly worth the three year wait! email:

TOMMY TALTON NEW C.D. "UNTIL AFTER THEN."
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Hittin’ the Note Records
770-640-1124

TOMMY TALTON
Until After Then

Release Date – October 28, 2014.

Tommy Talton’s fourth release from Hittin’ the Note Records. He is at his finest when reflecting on life, love and social issues. As a wordsmith his lyrics are as timeless as the melodies he creates. As a guitarist he has an exquisite sound that is totally his own. While many of his songs go deep and are reflective, he is not above bawdy humor on occasion. Listen to the lyrics well and you will pick up on some of the cleverness that is ever present but usually understated.

The 11 original songs on this album are each unique - different time signatures, different keys, different genres of musical styles - but they all have that down home Talton sound. It's a real pleasure listening to Tommy's excursions - from his home base of Southern roots music to Sgt. Pepperish Beatles to country into raw, Zeppelin type surf music - these songs are wonderful gifts to be enjoyed time and again. Classic Talton!

Tommy Talton is a familiar name to many, especially fans of 70’s Southern rock. Talton figured heavily into that part of music history co-founding the band Cowboy, discovered by none other than Duane Allman, who, as legend has it, banged on their door at 7am one day and asked to hear some songs. He then recommended them to Capricorn label owner Phil Walden, who sent Allman Brothers producer Johnny Sandlin to check them out; Sandlin ended up producing several Cowboy albums for Capricorn. Cowboy was recently chosen as one of the Top 10 Country Rock Albums of all time by About.com. http://countrymusic.about.com/od/top10lists/tp/Top-10-Best-Country-Rock-Albums.htm Tommy’s played guitar with the likes of Gregg Allman, Bonnie Bramlett, Dickey Betts, Kitty Wells and Clarence Carter in addition to his own band.
