Dudley Taft has teamed with Grammy-winning producer Tom Hambridge for his forthcoming blues-rock record Screaming In The Wind, due May 20.
Taft began his career in the Pacific Northwest rock community first as a member of Sweet Water and then as a member of the band Second Coming, which featured former members/associates of Alice in Chains. His rock and roll past is still part of his music but he's merged that with his passion for and knowledge of the blues.
His first blues-rock solo album was Left For Dead which he followed with Deep Deep Blue. Both of those records included a Freddie King cover and so does Screaming In The Wind. He's also taken a stab at Skip James' classic "Hard Time Killing Floor Blues" and contributed several of his own original compositions.
You can stream his version of "Hard Time Killing Floor Blues" while you wait for the full record to release next month.
