"Nashville Left Music/The BloomLaters"

Bluesbunny always wanted a pickup truck. There was just something about a pickup truck that suggested honest pay for an honest day's work. Of course work needs a soundtrack. A soundtrack like that provided in this release from Nashville's Doug DeJoe and the Bloomlaters.

The highlight of the album is "Jesus Drives an Oldsmobile". Sharply observed lyrics on the consumer values that we appear to cherish these days and a quality vocal performance distinguish this song. "Watch the World Go On" shows intelligence and compassion with a message about how life goes on no matter what you lose. "Somewhere in My Crazy Mind" also impressed with its sentimental take on what life actually means. If you want something up-tempo and radio friendly, then take a listen to "More Than Half a Chance" that features some tasty slide guitar from Richard Bell. There is something about Doug DeJoe's voice that gives his performance a world weary charm that suits the material well. This is not music for spotty kids. It is music for real people who have real problems and need someone to sing the songs that they can actually relate to.

So, this is good, honest country music. Just like it used to be before things got too sugary (and simultaneously antiseptic) in Nashville. As you would expect of musicians who have been in the business for a while, the songs are well constructed and are performed with a fair degree of style. This album is the ideal accompaniment to that drive down the interstate of life. Available from CDBaby .

Jesus Drives An Oldsmobile----2007



The Album, "JESUS DRIVES AN OLDSMOBILE", is centered around the title track that originated in the parking lot of a Nashille Wal-Mart and the chance meeting of an aspiring songwriter and "Jesus Christ Himself"...and his Oldsmobile!!
DOUG DEJOE AND THE BLOOMLATERS is a group that sings about life, REAL LIFE, and it's accomplished with incredible lyrics and melodies that combine experience and originality to create performances that leave you thinking and humming long after the show! This is an eclectic group of players that have all been through the Nashville music "Mill" and have come out "Clean", on the other side!!
