you like your blues hard-driving, then you will enjoy guitarist
Dave Sadler’s new single release, “Fourth Street Ruckus”, a
frenetic paced, big blues sound with blistering harmonica and guitar
work accompanied by the precision horn work of Dan Cipriano. Roly Platt,
one of Canada’s premiere diatonic harmonica players teams with Dave on
this title track for the new EP, “Fourth Street Ruckus”, scheduled for
release late 2011. Platt, a Toronto native, has become a sought-after
live and studio musician due to his versatility and skill. Dan Cipriano,
one of the busiest saxophone players in New York, is also no stranger to
the music world having toured or recorded with
Wilson Pickett, Bruce Springsteen and
Hailing from Pine Bluff, Arkansas (home to blues legends Big Bill Broonzy and Cedell Davis), Sadler says he picked up a guitar at an early age, because his piano teacher failed to make any headway with him at all. The choice of learning to play a musical instrument having 88 keys versus 6 strings was no contest. “Have you ever tried to tune a piano?”, Dave has been known to remark.
Growing up on the edge of the Delta, blues inspired music surrounded Sadler. Where a typical teenager might have been found listening to the latest top 40 rock hit, Dave, a self- taught musician who plays by ear, would often be found locked away in his room listening to the likes of B.B. King and Elmore James, trying to emulate their playing styles.
“Fourth Street Ruckus” by Dave Sadler is now available on iTunes, CDBaby, www.davesadlermusic.com and other download locations.
