My work on the new album, Sophomore Sizzler, is going great, and I wanted to share a song from the upcoming album with everyone. This song is called “Trapped in Blues”, and it’s named after the big musical influences that can be heard in the song.
The drums/percussion are straight from Atlanta’s trap music scene which is popular in the area. It was a lot of fun playing with the fast hi-hats and varying the drums under the same musical patterns. The songs chord progression is also very similar and can be heard in a lot of blues music. Of course, the bass is heavily influenced by the funk, and the breakdown in the middle with the synth bass reminds me of the Gap Band.
