Blue Track Records is proud to announce Nelsen Adelard’s sixth album : “Voodou By You”. Nelsen’s new release is a sweet mix of Blues, Blues Rock and down home Acoustic Blues.
Born into a show business family, Nelsen was already a professional musician at 15. A true "Blues Journeyman" Nelsen earned his stripes playing tough, gritty joints and taverns of the East Coast Blues Circuit. He opened for and shared the stage with such greats as Muddy Waters, James Cotton, Matt "Guitar" Murphy and Pine Top Perkins. Inspired by these legends, Nelsen developed a melodic driving style on both guitar and harmonics. A world class blues vocalist, Nelsen's voice is truly an expressive instrument. Striking the right balance of torment, and tenderness so essential to this style.
For the new 2015 album "Voodou By You", Nelsen hooked up with his old friend and band mate, Jon Puhl. Puhl brought with him a tight rhythm section of Mick Donner on bass and Phil Christman on drums. There’s even a guest appearance of Nelsen’s old friend and Sax Monster Mark Norris on a few tracks.
The album is a smoking example of their combined talents. Excellent performances, great riffs and a no nonsense approach to modern Blues. Mixed and mastered by Richard Robinson, "Voodou By You" is another notch on Nelsen's metaphoric Blues belt that is guaranteed to keep you listening.
Marty's review: "A Testament to the Blues"..What can I say about a man who has obviously paid his dues and honed his talents to produce an album that, in my opinion, is a testament to modern and traditional blues music. With scorching guitar licks, searing harmonica, a solid rhythm section and up front vocals that belt out Nelsen's lyrics about life, friends and what is close to his heart, this album is a must for your collection that will earn repeated plays.
