I have been playing music on Street Jelly.com for almost two years now! From time to time I have recorded my performances and I have compiled some of the better tracks onto CD’s. The first was “Old Five and Dimers”, and now “Sweet Jelly” is the sequel! When I released “Old Five and Dimers”, Toni Taylor-Helser – the Barefoot Baroness – wrote a great review of it. And she has now written a great review of “Sweet Jelly”! She has a wonderful radio show on Sunday nights on Mixposure – Hard to get a word in edgewise on that chat page! Fantastic music to be heard over there!!!
This Barefoot music listener and fan of Bill Madison received a message from Bill a couple of months back that put a smile on my face. Bill said he had woke one morning with his song “Barefootin’ Boogie” in his head. Recording it and including it in his message saying he thought of Yours Truly. Soon this became the intro track to his new CD “Sweet Jelly”.
From this intro track and throughout the album’s collection of tunes Bill keeps your feet doing a definite boogie with his rich acoustic guitar accompaniment, and his distinctive vocal quality full of natural expressions.
Bill is the first artist I experienced with Online Busking on his Saturday shows on www.streetjelly.com, happily so, as I quite like Bill’s style and sound. His latest album/Cd is a 13 track collection from his Street Jelly shows. I find the natural feel of this album as easy and comfortable to listen to as it is to experience his shows online. It is a venue made for an artist like Bill Madison, and I am delighted that his was my first experience with concerts in this format.
This collection begins with his original tune Barefootin’ Boogie that absolutely sets the tone of ambiance for the listener. Bill takes us through a journey of classic cover tunes that will have you feeling you have been time warped in the most of nostalgic ways. Bill has an easy flow to his vocal tone that he compliments so nicely with his acoustic guitar which creates a rich full sound as a soloist.
From his inspiring epic “All Along The Watch Tower”, to the romance of Eric Clapton’s ?Wonderful Tonight”, to the closing track “Forever Young” this album will certainly inspire memories from days gone by as well as inspire new memory making today.
Get yours inspired today.
