ABOUT THE ARTIST

Genre: Blues

Join the celebration of the release of Dave Specter’s new album on Delmark Records, Blues From The Inside Out.

From the album’s liner notes by Chicago writer and radio host Dave Hoekstra:

“Blues From The Inside Out” is the most expressive project of Dave Specter’s 35-year career. Featuring his debut as a vocalist, the album is an exciting and timely celebration of blues, soul, jazz, funk and gospel.

Imagine the blues as a color diamond you hold up to the sun. A dynamic light draws out brilliant hues at every turn of the rock. That’s the inherent beauty of this project.

These are fine times to hear Specter, an evolving artist who embraces growth and discovery.

“Blues From The Inside Out” includes a guest appearance on guitar by Jorma Kaukonen of Jefferson Airplane/Hot Tuna fame, who also co-wrote one of the album’s 12 original tunes. Specter wrote the uplifting soul anthem for change “March Through the Darkness,” he takes a deep dive into Meters-Neville Brothers inspired rhythms with the instrumental “Sanctifunkious” and sings on the blues shuffle title track. Besides Kaukonen, Specter recruited his long time collaborator/keyboardist Brother John Kattke who sings 4 tracks, the Chicago-based Liquid Soul horns and Latin-percussion ace Ruben Alvarez, each playing on three tracks.

Drummer Marty Binder and bass player Harlan Terson lay the foundation for the recording as a rock solid rhythm section.

“I was always content focusing on guitar as my instrument and voice as a musician,” Specter explained. “I’ve worked my entire career on the art of backing up singers and writing/playing instrumentals and never felt a desire to sing until fairly recently. I’m getting inspired to write more songs that I sing, as I’m honestly more comfortable singing my own words than somebody else’s. I’m looking forward to seeing where this road takes me.”

Watch out.
