Dan Treanor’s Afrosippi Band with Erica Brown delivers an incredible mixture of Blues and Roots that is brimming with Fire and Soul on their new CD Release “Tangled Road Again.” The CD showcases the entire band–Erica’s powerhouse vocals along with Merrian Johnson’s sultry voice, resulting in an emotionally charged trip through the a Blues landscape. Afrosippi is far from a one dimensional band, they cut a path that is so wide it covers a rich array of Blues. From a downhome field holler to a smooth ballad to visions of Koko Taylor when doing 2 standards like Earnestine and Wang Dang Doodle. Erica IS the queen of the Colorado blues scene…and the rest of the band is as equally talented as Erica. Dan Treanor on harp, guitar and Khalam; Mike Hossler on guitar, lap steel and gitjo; Mike Wysocki on bass and Gary LaDuke on drums are all consummate pros at the top of their game. Mix in a little help from friends like blues violinist Lionel Young and the Subdude’s John Magnie on accordion and you get a remarkable collection of original music full of passion and the deepest love of the blues. This CD is the blues and nothing but the blues!
