From Doug MacLeod
“I was thrilled to hear the news that Break The Chain won The Blues Music Award for Acoustic Album Of The Year last night.
I’m especially honored because it was in a category with artists I greatly respect. Since I couldn’t be there last night, I’d like to say some words of thanks here.
Thank you to – The Blues Foundation, my manager Miki Mulvehill, my record company Reference Recordings, Denny Croy, Jimi Bott, Oliver Brown, my son Jesse who co-wrote the title song and sang and played on the album, and finally the love of my life- Patti Joy. Without her love that chain would have never broken.
I’m hoping this can be an inspiration to all who have suffered abuse to know that even from a pile of manure a rose can grow.”
Break The Chain
In this release, his third album for Reference Recordings, Doug MacLeod continues to explore the breadth and depth of the human condition. Recorded by Reference’s Grammy-winning engineer ‘Prof.’ Keith O. Johnson at Skywalker Sound in Marin County, California, Break The Chain brings twelve new MacLeod originals. Each song is extremely personal and at the same time, universal; covering subjects topical, humorous, and soulful; from the satirical to the sublime.
Don’t forget that we’re celebrating with a Blues & Jazz 15% off Sale! Save on all of our Doug MacLeod releases and more!
