Demon St. Rations
This recording of all original tunes was made exclusively for the 2018 International Blues Challenge. Although the band plays a lot of blues covers in live shows there was very little in their media to show how dedicated they are to blues and it's roots to later rock music. This album is a Demo in a matter of speaking, and the title is a thinly veiled anagram. The four tunes highlighted here are the center of the band's competition act. and what earned them the winners of the Kentuckiana Blues Society Blues Challenge.
Released by the band in 2017 this first project was done before the complete group was formed.
All the music and lyrics were written by Amanda and recorded with a gathering of musical ideas and contributions from musical camaraderie.
The highlights include "Sailing", a reverberating tune about loving those struggling with addiction. Also, "Bartender", a blues tune with a unique banjo interlude by Joe Bollinger. And finally "Heart to Hold Onto" featuring a violin solo by the indomitable Carolyn Dutton.
