Live at Schmitt's Saloon on Sunday January 5.
When you think of Saving Abel, words like foot stomping southern rockers, down home boys with charm, no frills and whiskey drinking’ ways are some things that come to mind.
Their southern rock hooks, contagious melodies and dominating guitar solos have been burning up the charts since their debut “Self Titled” LP in 2008. Reaching top 40 and charting number one on several charts with their debut single “Addicted”, these boys have been a force to be reckoned with ever since. The platinum selling single helped
sell over 750,000 copies of their first record and also charted 2 more top 10 hits with the emotional military dedicated “18 Days” and the fast track rock song “Drowning (Face Down)”.
Their second album, Miss America also topped the Active Rock and Hard Rock charts and stuck out again to every listener and fan, with the infectious melodies delivered. The principal single “Stupid Girl (Only in Hollywood) showing the darker side of fame started the charting machine all over again. The raw and catchy, “The Sex is Good” charted top 10 on several charts, followed by the heartfelt explosive title track “Miss America” once again showing their military support rounded up this sophomore record, showing that the sophomore jinx never hit this hard working band.
Eagerly wanting to take it back to their roots of front porch jams and backyard gatherings, Saving Abel couldn’t wait to get back into the studio with Grammy winner and long time producer Skidd Mills of Skiddco Music (12 Stones, ZZ Top and Saliva) and do it all over again. Hoping for that trifecta, exploring new depths of their sound and bringing in “what they know best”, those old country roots, Jason, Jared and Skidd left no mandolin, banjo, water jug or jaw harp unturned. Accomplishing what they set out to do, their 3rd record “Bringing Down The Giant” is a perfect mix of old school country reminiscent of old Johnny Cash and Hank Williams, while still demonstrating these boys are deeply rooted in their rock n’ roll ways. Giving Saving Abel fans a plethora of emotions and showcasing their talent in songs like “Me and You”, “Michael Jackson’s Jacket” and “Pictures of Elvis”.The incomparable powerhouse that is Jared Weeks’ raspy voice and unparalleled rock driven sound played by guitarists Jason Null and Scott Bartlett, bassist Eric Taylor and drummer Michael McManus Saving Abel have cemented themselves in their generation of music.
