Dixie Fried

Low down, dirty, sleazy Blues Rock

New tunes, and...

We are so much loving the creative process of finding the groove of new tunes becoming their own beautiful thing.

We have been working real hard with some tunes, knowing roughly where they were wanting to end up and we just jam them out.

It's like walking through some thick mist and seeing in the distance the blurry shape of what you know is the morning sun, and as you walk closer and closer to the light the fog starts to clear as the tune gets closer and closer to the finished article.

Last night we both got that almost eureka moment, as the fog thinned to having 3 tunes within touching distance of completion...it's an adrenalin buzz & a half...it's those feelings of the genesis that keeps us doing this, that then that moment when we get to unleash them for the first time to an audience, unbeatable.

Few shows being booked, final recording session for album booked, first 2 summer festivals confirmed...it's been a great few weeks.

Hope to see you all very soon

Not long...

...until we get to play some tunes all over Scotland with 2 other amazing acts.

Matt Scott from Kilmarnock is someone we have been very lucky to play with several times before, if you have never seen him get along to one of these shows, amazing stuff and a great guy. Here is a wee video he done recently

Full Fat are from Aberdeen, we played with in Dundee back in May. A 3 piece that will blow you away. Well we certainly were and know they will deliver. Here is a recent cover they recorded

Come along to one of the gigs and I can guarantee you will be entertained with top calibre banter, reasonably good looks, and some better than average music.

Keep it Dixie y'all

September check in...

The last couple of weekends have been pretty special in the old Dixie Fried camp, and now is time to share with you our good fortunes.

Over the moon to advise that our first recording session for album number 3 was mind blowing. We rehearsed like mad in the run up to those 3 days hoping to try and put to bed as many tunes as we could. Our full approach to these recordings was just another step up from anything we done before, and just listening to the first mix of all the tracks we got finished we know we are on to something just a wee bit special.

A big thanks to Graeme for his ears, idea's, space and willingness to try new things. Made the whole weekend one great experience.

The second session will follow soon, as we go away and get the next batch of songs ready to come back to the studio again. Already started on a brand new one which is completely different from anything we have done previously, but one we have probably planned much more than anything before.

Then, the following weekend we again got to attend Jocktoberfest on the Black Isle. We cannot say enough good things about this festival. The location, the people, the vibe, the bands, the beer, the brewers and staff, the food every facet is just right to being a great weekend...and it delivers. For sure we will be looking out for when the tickets go on sale next year, as it is very limited numbers. Do yourself a favour and like the facebook page and watch out for updates. Last year we took one mate up, based on our comments more than a dozen came this year, next year numbers are already upwards of thirty desperate to be a part of it, we cannot blame them.

There are more images available from both weekends on our gallery page, go have a wee look.

Keep it Dixie y'all, more news coming real soon
