New CD

 Backyard Temple

 

Gerry Kamin is a Los Angeles based artist.  He is a songwriter and a multi-instrumentalist with his primary instrument being the guitar.  His music summons the psychedelic magic of Hendrix with bluesy-jazzy jams and classic rock sensibility.  The energy of the music is high, vital, and current. 

Originally from the Detroit- Windsor (Canada) area, Gerry’s music embraces the freedom and high energy of the classic Detroit sound.  He is joined on this Backyard Temple by fellow Detroiter Mark Damien on drums, along with Sam Morrison on vocals and together they weave a spell of high intensity Detroit style rock and roll soul.  For example, listen to the jam on Hoodoo Woman.  This is 1967 Detroit with a 21st century dynamic.   The other songs range from the sweet, melodic, Time Keeps Moving, to the orchestral The Explorer, to the hard boogie of Shake.

 Is this music retro?  Only in the best sense.
