Solomon’s Architects – “The Edge Of It All” goes beyond pure musical pastiche

Bryant Micheal Waghorn can make your head spin with his creativity and output as a singer, songwriter, project leader and musical collaborator. The album, “The Edge Of It All” by his pet project Solomon’s Architects, featuring multi-instrumentalist and producer Luc Michaud, as well as collaborator Josie Elysia, is a nod to the great pop, prog and rock crossover artists such as Peter Gabriel, the elaborate tropes of The Mars Volta, the complex bombast of King Crimson and the shuddering rhythms of Rush, with a thick smudging of REM-styled, organic singer-songwriter flair. Add a clear-headed ear for melody and arrangement to

Ramirez Coiva regards himself as a Citizen of the World, who has been writing and making music since 2000. His single “I’m Walking Away” was written and recorded in Istanbul (Turkey), a couple of years ago. The song is a hybrid between the alternative rock guitar sound of the past and a look toward a more modern, sleeker pop sound. One thing is clear on this track, there are very few people that can match Ramirez Coiva’s all-embracing songwriting talent. Regardless of style, whether it’s heavy guitars or strings, keyboards and drums, a great song is a great song, and

PAUL BARRERE & ROGER COLE: “IN MY TIME OF DYING” – From Gospel To Blues

This is the kind of down and dirty, hard-core, unadulterated, ‘slap-ya-momma’ type of blues that I love. Paul Barrere & Roger Cole are definitely in their element here. “In My Time Of Dying” feels as if Cole and Barrere had been wanting to make a track like this for a long time. This song enables them to cut loose and ‘do their thang’. Nothing fancy, nothing prissy – an upright bass, an acoustic guitar, a voice and not much else.  This thing just plain ROCKS!

This track could easily have come out at the time of the Chicago Blues explosion during the late forties and early fifties. Often you listen to one of those seminal Blues artists from that era and wonder, “what if they had captured this person at the top of their game, doing some of their better material with better musicians, in a more modern recording studio?” Well, here is that recording!

Barrere&Cole-400There is only one way to describe this recording and that would be sheer joy! There’s nothing phony or forced on this work; it’s because Paul Barrere & Roger Cole are in their zone, unleashing the Blues as well anybody possibly ever could on “In My Time Of Dying”.

If a person has any affection for this genre and doesn’t love this song as soon as they put it on, then he or she must be seriously out of tune. There’s no hidden meaning here or elaborated arrangement to absorb; this is the ABC of how it all started back in the day. In fact, if you’re an established musician, you should play this occasionally, to make sure that you haven’t strayed too far from the basic heart and soul of what we bastardize as rock music today.

If you’re only just listening, then buckle up, relax and enjoy the ride, because Paul Barrere & Roger Cole will be chauffeuring you in the best possible manner. The bass and guitars pound like a slow train through your brain, while the vocal is strong as ever. Cole and Barrere obviously had a vision their minds when they produced this track. This is what modern-day blues artists want to sound like, and older blues players could have potentially sounded like.

Paul Barrere & Roger Cole, capture the fury, the soulfulness, and the fire better than most on this version. Anyone who doubts that rock and roll is just bastardized blues should give this a listen. Arranged by both Cole and Barrere on the album “Riding the Nova Train” , the song was originally released in 2013 but is only gaining attention now. Barrere contributed the bluesy guitar runs heard throughout the single, while Cole recorded, edited, mixed, and mastered the track.

“In My Time of Dying” is a gospel song that has been recorded by numerous musicians. A couple of well-known versions that come to mind are by Led Zeppelin on their 1975 “Physical Graffiti” album and Bob Dylan on his self-titled debut album. The original recording was a traditional gospel song recorded by Blind Willie Johnson, titled “Jesus Make Up My Dying Bed”

The single by Paul Barrere & Roger Cole is currently available via platforms such as iTunes and Amazon Music. More information is available at www.betterdazemusic.com.
