Neal Black and The Healers – Handful of Rain



The Blues of Neal Black is a Blues of true life stories . It wasn't something he learned from a video clip or read from a book. Like the real Bluesmen, Neal black has lived his Blues : true stories of hard times in Texas (after a "disagreement" with the local Sheriff and Judge), loneliness in New York City, homesick in Mexico ...

The Blues of Neal Black is sung with a voice that's somewhere between Tom Waits and Howling Wolf after a carton of Marlboro. The Blues of Neal Black is colored with dark rage, sweet melancholy and drenched in smoking guitarwork that burns like a Tequila Sunrise.

"Handful of Rain" is Neal Black's 5th album released on Dixiefrog, this new album is filled with his lyrics that bite and scratch at your soul, and opens doors of long forgotten shadows in the back of your mind.
