Recently, the band released their debut self-titled CD. It was originally recorded at SGS Studios and mixed and mastered by Kevin Bomar of Final Stage. “After Kevin’s magic touch, the album became what it was meant to be,” said Bobby.
The CD contains a dozen tracks that catch your attention. The first track, as well as first single, is “You Know Where We Came From.” The rowdy anthem has become the battle cry for the Bay Area and I absolutely love how it starts out. “This song was meant to be our introduction and we use it to let people know what to expect from us. Right off the bat, we establish that!” said Vinnie. The band also shot a video for this song and featured some of the hottest women in Clear Lake. Watch for it on their Facebook page (www.facebook.com/sixgunsound.)
“We wanted to make a song that hits you hard, then harder, and then lands to K.O.” said Bobby, in reference to the searing track “Not Satisfied.”
The mellow track with a few well-placed growling vocals “Love From Gravity” began to take shape after Rardin was “free styling” at practice. “The guys fell in behind me and literally 10 minutes later, we had written what is probably our favorite track on the album,” he says.
“Sold Down River” was written the day after “Love from Gravity” and Vinnie explains, “We were in some kind of zone and the flood gates were open all the way at this point.” Bobby was so passionate about achieving the perfect guitar solo that it took over 8 hours to get it just right. “Over 60 takes on a 45 second piece of music, you know you have got want it!” said Vinnie.
The first song that we actually sat down and worked piece by piece with Kevin Bomar was “Something In The Way.” Rardin said, “It absolutely set the pace and the bar for the rest of the album.”
The only cover to make the CD is Johnny Cash’s “Folsom Prison Blues.” Rumor has it that Cash’s son John Carter Cash said this is the best cover he has ever heard of his Daddy’s song.
Other songs to note are my personal favorites “Where The Moss Don’t Grow,”
“Wonder,” and the blues laden “Filthy Breed.” I just love the composition of these songs. The last track “Just For Now” shows off their acoustic talent.
Overall, Six Gun Sound’s debut is everything I have come to expect from the band. It sounds very professional with timeless songs with relevant lyrics that run the gamut of party songs to dealing with everyday emotion. It was well thought out and executed. Get your copy at a show, Itunes or any other major digital retailer.
