With simple just guitar and vocals. He calls it living room this series of tracks “blues…stripped down, unplugged, rough cut”. The album was recorded at home. Fred will be launching a series of performance videos of each song on his new album ‘Fred’s Blues Chair Blues’ will be uploaded to YouTube over the next 10 weeks.
Fred said in commentary “Things are difficult. It seems like every one
except the very wealthy are being squeezed. Then Covid hit and put us behind the 8 ball. Drug companies and Oxycontin wreaked havoc on the rust belt and beyond. This song was penned bearing all these things in mind and it is why the video is close captioned. Artists are performing in their kitchen, barn, patio, bedroom, wherever they can. It inspired me to video an hour show for the Facebook page/group Can’t Stop the Blues.”
With this, we at IndiePulse are so very happy to announce the release of the video “Hey Corporate Vandals”.
Fred Said “It is a non profit platform supporting blues music and artists. I was able to make a little money and donate half of it back to organizations supporting unemployed blues musicians. After that I did a playlist aptly titled Can’t Stop the Blues on Spotify for artists who have appeared on their live shows. I never thought much more about it until one September night when a voice woke me up with the words “release your living room recordings as an album.”
Fred Hostetler has an Old-Fashioned Blues sound, as it was originally created, a natural and organic sound, with a wholesome feel, natural textures and melodies that inspire images of a simpler life, good times and warm summer evenings.
There is something magical about Fred’s voice in his performances of each song, lyrically, his emotional connection to the music is obvious, and in the instrument performances, without the distraction of “technology”, electricity or effects, the music takes front and center. Fred is a truly gifted performer, and in this album, in its organic beauty, he is giving the Blues fan a spiritual calling to worship music in its purist and most perfect form.
