"Sansietch Releases Latest CD, New Mexico Son, on Blues Farm Records"

Sansietch's ninth album, New Mexico Son, will be available from Blues Farm Records,, on October 31, 2008.

The CD has 11 songs, and each one is written with a southwestern feel that can only come from time spent in the desert, or out on the plains. Sansietch makes his home outside of Clovis, New Mexico, where you can find him performing acoustic sets in cafes and at local businesses and eateries. The album has no acoustic tracks, however, and the artist is never more at home then when he's wielding an electric guitar. He made that clear on his last CD, Off The Cuff, an instrumental album full of blazing improvisational melodies.

On New Mexico Son, he's no less out there, but this time he combines the power of his hands with that of his voice. Unique, rich, and at times haunting, Sansietch sings about the musical outlaws and legends of Clovis' past, while charting a new direction for the city, and the entire southwest.

With an extensive online presence, the best thing about Sansietch is he has a Rock website, an acoustic website, and of course, there's the Blues Farm Records label website... all loaded with tidbits for fans, and devoted to music enthusiasts. You can sample all of the new songs.

There is no title track, but the first song, High Plains Callin' sets the tone and the scope of the album. Slide guitar is the mainstay, but there's no lack of blistering, flatpicked solos either. Though the album bears little relation to anything commercial, it's difficult not to sing along with the choruses. The lyrics are centered around the mythos that is the old west, and sort of brings them up to date.

When the troubadour sings “high plains callin', big wheels roll again, today” the listener can envision a Harley rather than a horse. Western Warrior, a song about a fictional character who might have been a sheriff, or a bounty hunter, and Wasted Way, another smokin' hot rock song that lets you know he's “wild like the wind, free, like the open road”, are both testament to the tough, outlaw lifestyle.

There are so many gems to be found on New Mexico Son, but undoubtedly, the final track, Where Giants Roared, is the track that is most notable. It pays homage to the musical greats who came before him to make music in Clovis. “Gonna find out what it means to lay down tracks where giants roared, and where outlaws came to sing.” The song is a tip of the hat, and possibly a warning, as Sansietch sings, “Look out Clovis. Here I come.” - Blues Farm Publishing
