Ten Foot Tall Celebrates New Release At Legendary Stone Pony
Ten Foot Tall is holding a CD release party on Sunday, May 25th at the Stone Pony in Asbury Park, NJ.
There’s nothing better than kicking off the summer with a concert at The Stone Pony on Memorial Day Weekend, but the tunes from Ten Foot Tall’s new EP, “Get Back on the Highway”, will take you from the Shore to a wild ride around the country.
“We’ll start in New York, travel up the mountains and check out the view; go to Chicago, then glide down the Mississippi and flop in New Orleans,” said James Popik. “Funk in our feet, blues in our gut, jazz in our heart, and love on our mind. Whether its solo acoustic guitar fingerpicking or more jazzy electrified excursions, the songs paint colorful scenes and create moods evocative of the American landscape.”
“Get Back on the Highway” includes 6 new songs recorded with David Ivory (The Roots, Halestorm), a multiple Grammy-nominated engineer and producer. The CD brings the energy of a live Ten Foot Tall show into focus and highlights the band’s songwriting and vocals.
“With special guests Joe Deninzon (Stratospheerius)
Tyler Quiring in Blues Rock Review wrote, “On ‘Get Back on the Highway’, Ten Foot Tall weaves heartfelt songs focusing on the follies so typical to life while still creating a sense of hope and progress (the pertinent example being the name of the title track itself).”
Tim Louie from The Aquarian had this to say, “They have a sound that is comparable to The Allman Brothers, Lynyrd Skynyrd and even the Grateful Dead. I guess that’s more of a country rock sound. Either way, I really enjoyed it! Songs like ‘Get Back On The Highway,’ ‘Sleepin’ In The Devil’s Arms,’ and ‘Feelin’ Fine’ really make you want to drive out to the country (or South Jersey) with your windows rolled down, hair blowing in the wind, and blasting these tunes!”
