Citizens Of Nashville

Bob Menzies

Songs were ready to record and NashvilIe beckoned. I wasn’t too sure what would happen when I brought my batch of folk/blues tunes to a country studio but one thing I did know: I would find some of the best musicians on the planet down there and they would serve the songs well. So that credit for the great sound we got is theirs and I will of course take responsibility for the songs.

As in most of my work these are songs of longing and loss, hope and despair and love at the joy of being alive. The musician ship is nothing short of amazing with the line-up including some of Nashville’s finest musicians (session credits)

We decided to head down to Mississippi first to get to the heart of Blue Country where it all started. We got to Clarksdale and stayed on the old Hopson Plantation to re-work some of the songs to get them ready for the studio. Hung out at the crossroads of Highway 49 and 61, visited Robert Johnson at the Church Of The Holy Zion graveyard, crossed the Tallahachee and back to Nashvile for a whirlwing recording session. The album was finished in 6 days and a hard drive sat in my pocket till we got the tapes back to Toronto’s Lacquer Channel Mastering’s Phil Demetro.

I’m not exactly sure what we’ve got here. The Nashville engineers said it sounded like Country Americana. Time will tell.

One More Highway

Bob Menzies

"BOB MENZIES – One More Highway
Bob Menzies has become one of my new favourite singer-songwriters. I realize it’s a tired old phrase and describes a million different musicians out there, but Bob harkens back to some of our long-lost musical heroes: the troubadours, the storytellers, the minstrels." Jaimie Vernon,Jaimie “Captain CanCon” Vernon has been president of the on again/off-again Bullseye Records of Canada since 1985
