"all fired up" Sid Whelan


Flood Waters RISING

With the upcoming release of their bluesy debut "Flood Waters Rising," Whelan has inaugurated their Americana Trilogy which will result in the country-inspired second release “Grandpa’s Rye” in 2014 and in 2015, their third: the rock-inspired “NY Taxi.” With humor, wit and biting sarcasm, the band’s lyrics typically shine the spotlight on disturbing trends and nefarious characters that lurk in the edges of America’s shadowed spaces. And while the lyrics occasionally depart from that grit into more personal territory, the music is always catchy, confident, supple, and muscular and it is consistently looking for a passage into the new from within the old.
