INTERVIEW | David Robinson about ‘The Cold Heart Revue’s new album “Renegade Heart”

Hard driving Guitar solos are all over the place and their thriving vocals and harmonica melodies complement the sound of The Cold Heart Revue perfectly. This band knows how to bring Rock ‘n Roll, Blues and Guitar Rock out a stage. They already had a chart-topping Number #1 hit on the iTunes Blues Single Chart with “You’re A Picture on a Wall” and now they released their second EP “Renegade Heart”.

Like many other notable British Blues musicians, David Robinson of the Cold Heart Revue stands out in bad ass guitar solos and blues rocking arrangements. Their newest EP “Renegade Heart” is a shout out for the revival of hard blues rock and that is what we are waiting for!

David Robinson ( Vocals/Lead Electric Guitar/Lead Slide ) started performing as a solo acoustic blues artist under the name ‘The Cold Heart Revue‘ in 2014. Struck by the authenticity of blues music when performed he recorded his first EP as a solo artist and decided to recruit a full band to perform on the follow-up ‘Renegade Heart’, earlier this year. ‘The Cold Heart Revue’ became a 4 piece band in2017.

Interview about The New Cold Heart Revue EP “Renegade Heart”

Curious about the recording process, the band and the blues scene in England I spoke with Frontman David Robinson about the upcoming The Cold Heart Revue Album “Renegade Heart.

BBB: “All songs on the EP contain arrangements with additions that make the music powerful. For example, The harmonica additions in “American Rain” also the Backing vocals in “Tattoo Girl”, are very appealing. Can you tell something about the recording process? And did you gather some guest musicians?”

David:”Thank you for your encouragement. I am a regular reader of your blog and I am happy to be featured in this article.” “The harmonica on ‘American Rain’ came from a need to add extra heaviness to the sound. The harmonica is a great instrument that ties hard rock to the blues and does give the song a kick. The backing vocals on ‘Tattoo Girl’ came from simple joyful exuberance and they were enjoyable to do. It also helps to differentiate the verses and the choruses. The core of each song was recorded live – the drums, bass guitar, rhythm guitar and lead guitar was recorded with the amplifiers in separate rooms and mic’d up. I then added the vocals, piano, Hammond organ and harmonica.”

Blend of Country and Funk infused Blues on NEW The Texas Gentlemen album TX Jelly

The bluesy sound in  “Habbie Doobie” and “Pain” reminds you of two of the three kings in blues. Albert King and Freddie King would probably like these tracks as the show groove, funk, and soul in a blended mix of Southern Rock. We’re talking about The Texas Gentlemen who released their debut Studio album TX Jelly this September via New West Records.

‘A band Slowly Coming Together’

The band describes this record nicely “Sometimes, authenticity can sneak up on you. The first sounds you hear on The Texas Gentlemen’s debut studio album, TX Jelly, is that of a band slowly coming together.”

“Habbie Doobie” Blues and Funk inspiration

“Habbie Doobie” is remarkable for its grooving guitar riff, which reminds you of Albert King’s “Born Under a Bad Sign”. Also, the Honky Tonk Piano additions in this track make you very happy. On their website you’ll read that it is “a low-slung piece of vintage country-funk that slams out of the speakers and announces the Texas Gentlemen as a force to be reckoned with”, I couldn’t agree more!
