Product Description

Selwyn Birchwood, Florida's rising young blues fireball, is a guitar and lap steel playing bundle of pure energy. He delivers his original songs with a revival tent preacher's fervor and a natural storyteller's charisma made all the more impactful by his raw, unvarnished vocals. Birchwood plays high-octane blues - at once deeply rooted, funky and up-to-the-minute - with true passion and honest emotion. With his band feeding off his drive and exuberance, the striking 6'3" 29-year-old with his trademark Afro roams the stage (often barefoot), ripping out memorable guitar licks with ease. His ability to win over an audience - any audience - is proven night after night on the bandstand. With his warm, magnetic personality, Birchwood is as down-to-earth as his music is fun, thought-provoking and vital. His mission is to spread his music far and wide, to share his joy, to play his heart out, and to push the blues into the future. "There's nothing I'd rather be doing than playing the blues," he says. "And I try to convey that with every song and with every performance." In 2013, Birchwood catapulted from local hero to shooting star. He won the world-renowned International Blues Challenge, beating out 125 other bands from the U.S. and abroad. He also took home the Albert King Guitarist Of The Year Award. It wasn't long before Alligator Records president Bruce Iglauer offered Birchwood a contract. His debut album, Don't Call No Ambulance, is a fully realized vision of contemporary blues. Birchwood's original songs range from raucous romps to hill country stomps, from searing, serious slow blues to modern blues rock. Between his uninhibited sense of fun and adventure and his serious-as-a-heart-attack musicianship, Don't Call No Ambulance is a window into the future of the blues. "All originals and no filler," he says of the album. "It's that genuineness of emotion in the songs that people can hear." "A genius revelation and a pleasure...roaring guitar and down-home lap steel" - Blues Matters "Selwyn Birchwood is making waves, surprising people and defying expectations. Be on the lookout. He revels in the unexpected." - Living Blues

I like this a lot. I had never heard of him 'til I came across this Album. he comes from Tampa Florida apparently. His voice sounds like a combination of early Tom waits and Chris Rea only with a bit more funk added to the rhythm. This is, for the most part, boogie with a couple of blues laments and a helping of RnB lobbed in too. What I like is the horn sections contribution on many tracks, especially when Selwyn hits out with some hot lap steel guitar work. That is a very tasty combination. He does fantastic picking work too. I am not a nerdy discographer so I am not going to catalogue every track and who ate what and when. Suffice to say this is a fantastic find. The drummer whacks his kit with a satisfying vengeance too ( that's as technical as I am prepared to get ). My favourite track is 'Tell Me Why'. If you listen to the lap slide work on that alone you'll be sold on Selwyn Birchwood. I hate categories, as you could say some tracks are Blues and you could say others are Rnb. I prefer to say the whole thing is 'Blues With Soul'

There are some stunning new blues artists out there and this fellow is right there in the vanguard with his funky, horn inflected blues. His guitar licks are something special though and his raspy fruity voice is amongst the best around, a bit like a more cheerful Mark Lanegan. In a genre that is often repetitive and derivative, there are real signs here that new furrows are being ploughed and artists likeSelwyn Birchwood are driving the tractor.
