"Beau Weevils - Songs In The Key Of E is the culmination of a long held desire of James
Stroud and myself to do a project together.
We had worked together, with James in the capacity of producer which had resulted in
some of our most successful albums for The Charlie Daniels Band, but James is one of the
finest and most soulful drummers in the business and I figured we could get together,
musician to musician, and come up with something special, we just needed a vehicle in the
form of songs that would fit the bill.
The whole thing started one day when I, as I so often do, was fooling around with my guitar
and came up with the opening riff on a song that eventually turned out to be 'Mudcat' which
set the style for the rest of the songs I would write, that all lent themselves to being played
in the key of E, hence the title.
Charlie Hayward, CDB’s rock solid bass player, for the past forty-three years, and counting,
comes from the same school of the Soulful-Bluesy-Dixie Fried approach to interpreting a
song as James.
Now we needed another picker who shared the same type of 'Downhome, Swampy, Rock
meets Funk with a little taste of 'Delta' type of style and Bill Crain and his sizzling slide guitar
was just the ticket.
Holla, The Beau Weevils!!"
