NEW ROAD - Music by Alan Babbitt
DEBUT ALBUM RELEASED AFTER SEVEN DECADES!
Very few musicians wait until they're almost 70 years old to release their debut album. Alan Babbitt is one of them.
"What's the hurry?" says the singer - songwriter who chose April Fools Day as the album's release date.
"I was pretty busy for 65 of those years," he goes on. "Hopefully, the 2nd album won't take quite as long."
NEW ROAD is an eclectic mix of musical styles including folk, folk rock, jazz and a new genre Babbitt calls "Grump Rock."
"There are more than a few things in this world to be grumpy about," he says with a smile, "I don't think I'll run out of material anytime soon."
NEW ROAD features nine original songs - ranging from humorous to quirky to thought-provoking, with a few stops in between.
The album is infused with catchy melodies, jazzy arrangements, and rich vocal harmonies.
Lyrically, Babbitt weaves together little stories and impressions, and offers some intriguing, and at times, wacky, perspectives. Thanks for listening.
