© ℗ 2013 Trampled Under Foot.
After several acclaimed self-released albums, Trampled Under Foot debuts Badlands
. Toughened by years of nonstop roadwork, Badlands
reveals a musical sophistication well beyond the band’s years. On Badlands
, the band worked again with producer Tony Braunagel at his Ultratone Studios in California. The drummer in the Phantom Blues Band, Braunagel plays some percussion on the album and recruited veteran keyboardist Mike Finnigan (Jimi Hendrix, Bonnie Raitt, Etta James) to play keys. Johnny Lee Schell, who also recorded the album, adds acoustic guitar to one track and even mother Lisa Swedelund provides some additional backing vocals.
ReviewsEchoes of blues and R&B greats like Freddie King, Buddy Guy, Etta James, The Temptations, and The Allman Brothers ring through the accomplished new album from three-sibling Kansas City band Trampled Under Foot...in essence this is a powerhouse rocking blues band well worth a listen. - Seattle PI
