Blues man Terence Lording releases new single ‘Forecast Lightning’

The songwriter of blues music known as Terence Lording has released his latest official single, “Forecast Lightning.” The single has been proudly published without the influence or participation of the corporate music power structure. A sonic landscape of shadows, mystery and intrigue, “Forecast Lightning” by Terence Lording is a contemporary reminder of how very ice-cold cool blues can sound.

Terence Lording has cited as main artistic influences such musical legends as the Beatles, Jimi Hendrix, the Rolling Stones, Michael Jackson, and Led Zeppelin. His own sound takes elements of each of these (the innovative creativity of the Beatles, the slyness of Hendrix, the blues and rock blend of the Stones, for example) and makes of them a fresh amalgam that is not often found in modern blues music.

Asked to describe any themes or meanings which his “Forecast Lightning” might have in store for listeners, Lording writes simply that his sounds are intended to paint “musical imagery.” In this, his latest track excels in spades. For this reason, the song is not only excellent for personal, casual listening, but also lends itself easily to background scores for cinema and other purposes.

Terence Lording is a born American, raised in the west and south of the United States, as well as in Europe. His music journey began at the age of four, when he started learning to play guitar. Largely an autodidact, he was classically trained at the ages of eight, 17 and 25, but leans mostly on those lessons he taught himself. His college years found him playing in experimental music crews, while by his thirties he had picked up bass guitar.

He has stated that his main music interests include blues, jazz, soul, hard rock, blues rock, classical music, rock ‘n’ roll, rhythm ‘n’ blues, pop, and writing and recording.

“Forecast Lightning” by Terence Lording is available online worldwide.

Karen Clancy Releases Self-Titled New Album

Album Cover, “Karen Clancy”

Karen Clancy, a blues singer/songwriter from Florida, has released her first LP, self-titled. “The album, Karen Clancy, is a culmination of a life that has always had a soundtrack,” says Clancy.

The record showcases her adroit, tender handling of traditional blues tenets while remaining a modern interpretation of classic, deep-south undertones. The album is markedly comprehensive, boasting rich components of jazz, classical, and Irish folk music, and marks the beginning of her available catalog.

Her collaboration with Mark Hodgson inspired the inclusion of several blues classics, such as Bessie Smith’s “Baby, Won’t You Please Come Home,” Rosa Henderson’s “Don’t Advertise Your Man,” and the standard, “Nobody Knows You When You’re Down and Out.”

Geoff Weeks accompanies on the piano, of which performance Clancy has said, “His talent must be mentioned fervently…these songs came to life in his hands.”

“Back in the Day” is Clancy’s memoir of growing up on the beachside of New Smyrna: “Back in the day I used to sneak, underage, into the local clubs to hear Southwire, a band in which Billy Chapin played guitar. Who would’ve thought all these years later I would be recording my first album in his studio?”

Of the Gaelic influence on her work Clancy writes, “As the youngest of ten Clancy siblings it is difficult to ignore the Irish influence written into my DNA. ‘She Moved Through The Fair’ is a nod to that history while breaking with tradition using the Universal Energy of the Sitar as an accompaniment, played beautifully by Rick deYampert.”

Clancy’s influences include Bessie Smith, Muddy Waters, Junior Wells, Ethel Waters, Stephane Grapelli, and Big Mama Thornton.

She has performed at myriad locales, including New Smyrna Beach, Miami, Key West, Tampa, New Orleans, Houston, Colorado, Chicago, D.C., Vermont, Hana, Madrid, Bruges, Paris, and Venice.

The LP “Karen Clancy” is available for purchase and download from iTunes, or at her website,
