While Web Burrell's name is familiar to musicians, producers, and songwriters in Los Angeles, New York, New Orleans and Washington from his studio and live performances, this CD is his first effort as a solo performer. As a studio musician and producer, he has collaborated with Waddy Wachtel, Gary Usher, Keith Olsen, Andy Newmark, Curt Boetcher, The Subdudes and Randy Bachman to name just a few. His musicianship and original songs have been recorded and released internationally, with positive reviews in Rolling Stone, and an award from Billboard. From the exhilaration of the open road as depicted in the bluesy 'Black Cadillac', to the first-person depiction of life's devastation following the flooding of the Mississippi River in the rocking 'Hold Back The Water'. From the steel drums and percussion of the beach lover's dream life in 'Tahiti', to the precise acoustic guitar work on 'You've Got It Good.' The overall mood of the album reflects a positive outlook, with songs like 'Starting Up', which celebrates the excitement of embarking on a new direction in life, and 'Good To Go', a Jimmy Reed style blues groove that reassures an uncertain lover. There are also two instrumentals from this former session sideman -- a jazz-styled swing composition entitled 'Just Passing Through', and 'Wintermute', a slow-driving, moody keyboard piece. Web has performed at the Grand Old Opry, the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival, and on The Nashville Network. He is a voting member of NARAS.
