Dave Powell and the Lonely Gales - Recovery Blues

Well Schooled

This five track EP of Country rock and blues suggests a student of the Steve Earle school of gritty confession without the political passages. So musically speaking there’s a rasp in the voice and the rock is punchy and the ballads heartfelt.  According to the noisetrade site where this can be downloaded for free, the songs chart ‘his descent into substance abuse and depression, and the ragged road he trudged back home to health and happiness’. We wish him continued h&h, and this fine set of songs would seem to herald a positive future. Link here.
