About this album

The CD release Volume: Blue is recognized as an underground classic, combining blues, hip-hop, and experimental music styles. Volume: Blue is Sol’s tribute to his blues and roots mentors and received international attention to carry Sol overseas to perform these sets live.

“…the shape of blues to come…”- David Whiteis, Living Blues Magazine

“While many young, white musicians attempt to replicate the blues masters’ art, Sol steers clear of imitation in favor of excavation and transport. Sounds carry beyond genre, beyond origin and often beyond the grave. Ancient truths of the blues arrive in some new place, through some new voice, through some kid who is Sol.

Who is Sol? Some kid, I guess. Then again, anybody would look like a kid if they were pictured sitting at a little table, next to a beer-drinking, truth-telling Cootie Stark and a sunglass-wearing, cool-staring guitar slinger like John Ferguson. That’s the only glimpse we get of Sol, and we don’t get that one until we pop open the Volume: Blue CD and remove the disc from its jewel box. Then you see a shot of Sol with Ferguson, Cootie and a Heineken, and that’s probably worth the price of purchase right there.

Once the disc is out of its casing, it might as well go into your CD player.
