On his 2005 CD release, LouD, Canadian guitarist Lou DeAdder shoots straight with ten blues rockers which have been described as Robben Ford meets Johnny Winter meets Jeff Beck. DeAdder doesn't shy away from the solos, as the initial cut, "Beer Drinkin' Mama" (a beer swillin' sing-a-long), features two extended solo sections - cool! DeAdder goes after the guitar lovin' market by ensuring each song is marked with passionate lead lines from his trusty Les Paul, Fender Telecaster and Gibson 335 guitars. His all-original material is flavored with funk and R&B elements, as well as plenty of smoking riffs and brassy grooves. And here's something you don't hear every day, a flute solo on a blues-based track ("You Said")! Assembling a team of crack musicians to play on LouD ensures a positive listening experience for anyone into guitar-oriented blues/rock.
Lou has been playing guitar for well over 30 years, beginning at age 12, and playing full time by age 18. Earlier influences include Jeff Beck, Johnny Winter, Eric Clapton, Jimi Hendrix, Mike Bloomfield and Jimmy Page (all are still favorites). He has lately latched on to pickers such as Robben Ford, Albert Collins and Stevie Ray Vaughan - all contributing to Lou's fluid style of playing. Lou has worked with many bands such as Shirley Eikhard, Brandy, Whip, 100 Proof, Mother Nature, Mason Dixon Line, Biggy Twiggy Band, Lockerbie, Level Crossing, Music Box, Hickory Creek and also did a single for about 12 years. After playing just about every style under the sun to survive as a musician, Lou went back to his musical roots (rockin' blues).
DeAdder is already hard at work on his next CD, having nine songs in the can. He and his band maintain a steady gig schedule in order to promote LouD.
