CD Brings Good Ol’ Country, Soul And Rock & Roll To Life With Vintage Amps, Instruments And Halford’s Finely-Crafted Songwriting

Nashville, TN (May 19, 2017) – Singer/songwriter Jeffrey Halford’s eighth CD, Lo-Fi dreams, drops today – taking listeners to places they’ve been … and places they will never go. Dirty Linen called Halford “Hemingway armed with a Blues guitar” and it is an apt description, but one that falls short of portraying the pure aural wonder of this new disc. To salute the release, Roughstock premiered “Door # 3” yesterday. The Alternate Root will shine the spotlight on “Good Trouble” tomorrow. Fans can purchase in vinyl or digital formats at iTunes, Amazon, Amazon UK and retailers everywhere.

The 10-track collection, recorded in San Francisco and released on Floating Records, offers listeners a stripped-down journey of tube amplifiers pushing the speakers to obliteration. Adam Rossi and Jeffrey co-produced, using vintage equipment and Sears Silvertone, Danelectro and Harmony brand guitars from the 1950s and ’60s to create a warm, fuzzy sound. Halford composed all the songs, and reigns supreme on his National Resophonic guitar.

That signature sound is featured throughout. “Elvis Shot The Television” rips and tears its way through the last bloated, storied Las Vegas days of the King, while “Door # 3” shimmers and shines with “surfer” guitar while imagining love American-style as a game show. “Good Trouble” was inspired by civil rights leader and Georgia congressman John Lewis. The revivalist feel is compelling and the message is as timely today as it has ever been. A picker’s journey home, “10,000 Miles” relates the desire for the road and a lover left behind as it pulls the track relentlessly forward. The disc closes with “Great Divide,” a story of a couple’s breakup put forth as a metaphor for America’s current political partisanship.

No Depression compares Jeffrey to “Tom Petty singing vocals for the Eagles as BB King plays dirty Blues.” On Lo-Fi dreams, Halford has created a world within a world, sketching a unique American landscape where the California surf slams into the mud of the Mississippi Delta. “Jeffrey Halford should definitely be on your list of favorite artists and this one deserves a preferred spot on your playlist,” notes Indie Voice Blog.
