Pages of Paperwork is the fifth installment in Levee Town's
catalog. With a sound built on years of constant performing and
songwriting, the band has created a hard-driving, smoothly-polished, soulful
record. Pages of Paperwork exhibits a maturity and
sophistication borne of heartbreak and the joy of personal resurgence.
Songwriters Hudspeth, Garoutte, and Meade share a convergent vision of the
world-at-large and craft their individual tunes in a similar vein. The
band chugs along with astonishing energy and focus. Vocally, Levee Town
is obviously comfortable performing an ever-widening array of styles.
From rocking shuffles to grinding slow blues to North-Mississippi-style rockers
to KC swing numbers, Pages Of Paperwork is an exhilarating breath of
fresh air and a joy to take in.
Adam Hagerman is the new member of LT. He is a great addition to the line
up, a BEAST of a drummer. He has toured extensively Hadden Sayers, Wes
Jeans,Smokin' Joe Kubek & Benios King and Anthony Gomes, just to name a
few. More on him will come later. We are very excited about having him on the
Garoutte multi-instrumentalist arranger and producer fills in the bass with
years of musical experience. From Miami
Oklahoma, Jacque lays down a deep
strong bass line, supplies quite bit of energy onstage, and sings with a smooth
single malt voice.
From Chicago, Jimmie Meade
plays the harmonica like a man possessed by...angels and demons alike. He will
make you smile as he jumps and jives during his intense harp and vocal
renditions of Dylan and Waters.
While growing up in central Oklahoma, Brandon Hudspeth
saw Johnny Cash on Sesame Street
and had to start pickin' on guitars. As he sings, he rings the neck of his
wide body Gibson like its a Flying Vee dipped in gasoline.
These guys are blazing hot! They will cause you to stomp your feet, clap your
hands, and maybe dance on the tables. Levee Town
generates a lot of excitement and a smokin' good time. For your own protection,
you better wear a fire suit!
