Before Daylight
Neal Black - Before Daylight
Out of stock






With this new album (celebrating 20 years of collaboration with his French label Dixiefrog) Neal Black once again defies the stereotypical expectations of being a Texas Guitar Slinger. His lyrical content leans more towards a Bluesy version of Bukowski and his unique approach to Lead Guitar still tastes of Texas but comes closer to sounding like a Turbo-Charged Chris Rea or Peter Green.

The album’s underlying theme of “in darkness there is hope” is accentuated by Neal Black’s raw, smoky vocals that make us believe every word he sings is the Voodoo Gospel truth. With Songs like “Jesus & Johnny Walker” and “Dead By Now”, Neal Black crosses into new territory musically and lyrically.

“Before Daylight” is the 9th Album and a celebration of a 20 year relationship between Neal Black and Dixiefrog Records and features Neal’s incredible backing band “The Healers” including Mike Lattrell (Piano, Organ, Mandolin, Accordion) and Kris Jefferson (Bass & Percussion), both former Popa Chubby musicians, but also Dave Bowler (Drums & Percussion) and Bako Mikaelian (Harmonica).
