Description

Blues Rock guitarist, singer/songwriter Popa Chubby drops a brand new album of original music,  and like so many others his latest was conceived and recorded in lockdown… Popa explains:  ” I was home in isolation with a bunch of guitars, drums, amps, microphones losing my mind.  I started writing songs. I wanted to make people feel better so the first was “Can I Call You My Friends?” No musicians in the studio so I had to use my skills, my gall and my soul. All I had! Luckily there was a never-ending flow of ideas that stemmed from what was going on in America and the world.  This record is as true as I have ever been in  my 60 years on the planet. It’s birthed from love, desperation, fear, frustration, pain, joy, sorrow, and resolution. Like you, I have been pushed to the limits of my humanity by the pandemic. But music sweet music has set me straight once again and I offer this work with humility and devotion to you all”.

I think we can all share in those sentiments even if we can’t emulate his creativity and, in typical Chubby fashion the messages are real, shot with humour (when appropriate) and also rarely seen tenderness: “This record is dedicated to the memories of all the souls who departed this mortal coil due to Coronavirus disease. May truth be our light to guide us through this dark night”.
