JOHN LILLY 'State Songs' JL-2017-CD
Blue Yonder lead singer John Lilly has been putting out strong albums of mostly his own compositions for a quarter century. On State Songs - exactly what the name implies - he used the largest backing bands of career including at times Sonny Landreth and Joel Savoy. In these homages to various states, Lilly features not only the classic, honky-tonk groove that fits his vocals so well, but uses to horns, keyboard, fiddle, and electric guitar to explore styles ranging from Cajun to jump blue[ to rockabilly.
