Dudley Taft CD release shows at Jazzbones Tacoma and Highway 99 Blues club Seattle.
Singer-songwriter and guitarist Dudley Taft is a tour de force in the blues world. His unique sound—Delta riffs and Texas sagebrush served with edgy Seattle rock intensity—reflects the eclectic journey of his 30 plus years in music. Dudley embraces the Blues—the foundation of all the great late ‘60s and early ‘70’s rock he loved as a teen. Local guitar hero Rob Swaynie in Indianapolis taught Dudley the value of music theory interspersed with B.B King, Led Zeppelin and ZZ Top riffs. Taft's background includes study at the renown Berklee College of Music; and years touring with the hard-rock bands Sweet Water and Second Coming.
"The band and I are very happy to be playing a couple of shows in the great Northwest in July. We have a whole bunch of new songs in our set from the new album, Screaming In The Wind, plus two newbies that will be on the next album and a few cool new cover tunes for your enjoyment. I hope you all can make one of these shows." Dudley Taft.
Taft is back by monster Northwest musicians, Eric Roberts on Keyboards, John Kessler on Bass and Carl Martin on drums.
