Seven-time Blues Music Award nominee, Tad Robinson returns with more powerful soul/blues on Day into Night.
Backed by the Severn Records House Band, Tad digs deep into his soul/blues roots for 12-tracks of the most dazzling songs in his catalog to date.
From the opening stunner, “Soul Lover” to the gritty harmonica-driven “While You Were Gone” each track underscores Tad’s rich, persuasive vocals. Highlights include “Need Some Better” and “He’s Moved On,” plus tracks featuring blues guitar heavyweights Alex Schultz (“Nightwatch”) and Anson Funderburgh (“Lonely Talking”).
The songs here are reflections on the way we connect, love and remember, each flowing from soul celebrations of sturdy, tested love, to the blues of relationships tangled up in doubt, old flames and new attractions, with the inevitability of Day into Night.
Check out Tad’s other Severn titles: Did You Ever Wonder?; A New Point of View; and Back In Style.
Big thanks to the entire team that helped get this project done. Thanks to my beautiful and wise wife, Amy, for good advice along the way. And thanks to my parents, Ray and Phyllis Robinson, for raising me in a household filled with music, laughter and joy.
