An eclectic and energetic selection of tunes about real life, delivered with humor and soul.

This collection of songs has great feel reminiscent of early Steely Dan and Santana. The musicians performing on this record are all seasoned pros, some of which have played on nationally charting recordings (Jason Patterson with "Cry of Love, " Jeff Grimes with "Jimmy Castor Bunch.") Tuff Blanton played bass with the legendary "Unknown Hinson" for a time. Excellent players. Tasty performances by folks who wanted to play and record together!

Lyrically, as well as stylistically, the songs are varied. Some truth, some fiction. For instance, this writer did awake one night to Snoop Dog selling the wonders of "Girl's Gone Wild." Though product was never purchased (written in first-person to make the story work), there was a newspaper article several years later about one of the participants in a video suing the company. What was she thinking when she saw the camera and started removing items of clothing? In reality, a commentary on modern-day life, morals and a predatory legal system.

"Square Peg" is about obsession with the wrong person (something to which we all might relate). "Edge of the Knife" is a commentary on techno-overdose. "Anything Can Happen," well....pretty much a male fantasy, but amusing. The list goes on. Each song presents a different tale and perspective of life experiences.

Thanks for stopping by! Pick up a copy of "Anything Can Happen." :You'll enjoy it!

Living in the Baby Boom

Andy Swindell

Blues-driven songs about life, love, and fun from a baby boomer.

Andy Swindell is a survivor! Growing up in the sixties, Swindell’s love for music of all genres was all-possessing. After years of performing and recording as a member of the southern soul circuit institution, The Embers, it was time to reveal his eclectic take on life through his songwriting by recording Living in the Baby Boom.

With a little help from his buddies (including world-class guitarist Audley Freed who was kind enough to play three blazing solos on the record), Andy’s R&B roots are revealed (with a little bit of country, rock and jazz thrown in for good measure). From the swinging blues of Girl’s Got Rhythm to the reggae influenced She’s Got It, this is a fun record created by someone who’s comfortable in his own skin.

According to Swindell, “I think a good album should be like a letter from an old friend.” Give it a listen and you just may become one.
