David Vest - David Vest CD
Unlike Vest’s previous Canadian albums, which were recorded in Toronto, his self-titled release was recorded on Vancouver Island in British Columbia. The project reunites Vest with his old friend Peter Dammann, Chicago-born guitarist from the Paul deLay Band and a member of the Oregon Music Hall Of Fame. Blues fans will recognize the name of drummer and co-producer Billy Hicks from his days with Powder Blues, but the inspired playing of Ryan Tandy on upright bass will be a revelation, dubbed by Vest as "my secret weapon." Winnipeg native Tom Bowler, David's regular guitarist, rounds out the band. The album was recorded live-off-the-floor, with live vocals and minimal overdubs or retakes.
