After a short holiday break, Lanark Records returns with their critically-acclaimed weekly digital series, “52 Singles In 52 Weeks”, providing a wide range of roots-based tunes from a variety of artists. This week’s release is from Nick Kane, who is a former guitarist for multi award-winning band, The Mavericks. Nick spent much of the 90’s with the band before once again embarking on his solo career. “Operating In The Blue” is a bluesy rock number reminiscent of Dr. John & George Thorogood all wrapped up in one unique style that is purely Nick’s.
Also coming up in the series is the South Central Pennsylvania based band, Little Leroys, with their take on the Rolling Stones classic, “Time Is On My Side”. Guitar veteran Mickey Dean Fisher and vocalist Cindy Little extract the best from roots rock and lace it with an improbable twist of blues and honky-tonk. See them perform at this year’s Lancaster Roots & Blues Festival. www.lancasterrootsandblues.com
Chan Romero will connect with the series again at the end of the month with “Tamale Man”. Mr. “Hippy Hippy Shake” proves he’s no one-hit wonder by offering a soulful, rockin’ tune that will instantly make you search for more from him. This is his second tune in the series after the Christmas single, “Letter To Santa”. More info on upcoming singles coming soon!
