We are thrilled and elated to announce that Chicago's own intrepid songwriter and lightning-fingered banjoist/guitarist Al Scorch has joined the Bloodshot ranks! We will release Al's (outstanding!) new album in early 2016. The Bluegrass Situation has the scoop here.
Scorch is a staple of the Chicago DIY music scene, and we've seen him entertain at all sorts of venues with all sorts of bands. It's an experience (and a party) every time.
Not only are we excited to add another Chicago-bred musician to the fold (we only have a handful of hometowners these days), but Al just plain gets it: "Chicagoans have a way of making art: we keep our noses to the grindstone, hardly ever looking up. People notice what gets done here because it is truthful and of quality; not because we've greased the palms of those that tell the sheep where to graze."
