David Gogo - Vicksburg Call CD
Vicksburg Call is Gogo's 14th release and is poised to add even more acclaim to an already impressive inventory. He's earned numerous accolades, including four JUNO nominations and multiple Maple Blues Awards. He has thousands of tour miles under his belt and has shared stages with Johnny Winter, B.B. King, Otis Rush, Albert Collins, Bo Diddley, ZZ Top, Buddy Guy, Charles Bradley, and many others.
Undoubtedly a rockin' blues album, Vicksburg Call was recorded in a studio with a live, intimate atmosphere, which yielded an overall grittier sound with lots of feeling. Gogo was affected by the loss of some very influential blues legends and colleagues while creating this album, and the songs explore themes of love and loss, reconciliation, regret, acceptance and hope for new horizons. Gogo's passion for all kinds of music, but especially blues, and his extraordinary, virtuosic guitar talents are laid bare alongside his emotions on this album - a combination that grabs you from the opening bars and keeps you hooked through all 10 tracks.
Special Guest features: Kim Simmonds (Savoy Brown) and Shawn Hall (The Harpoonist & The Axe Murderer)
