KIM SIMMONDS & SAVOY BROWN ARE BACK!
Legendary…a blues/rock institution…true innovators. These are just a few of the ways Savoy Brown has been described over the past forty years by music critics and fans.
One of the earliest of British blues bands, Savoy Brown, with founder guitarist Kim Simmonds at the helm, helped launch the 1967 UK blues boom movement that brought blues music back to the USA invigorating the style forever. In the process, the band became part of the framework that launched the rock and roll music of the 1970’s. Their influence now stretches into modern rock as we know it today.
About The Devil To Pay Release :
Real music is hard to find. If you’ve ever felt suffocated in the age of fakery and hype, then Savoy Brown’s latest album The Devil To Pay is a blast furnace. Driven by classic blues and age-old human truths – but dragged into contemporary relevance by stinging musicianship and modern savvy – Kim Simmonds’ new songs have arrived when we need them most. “In many ways,” considers the legendary guitarist, “this is the best album I’ve ever done. It’s fresh and new, and belongs to the twenty-first century.”
Released on Ruf Records in 2015 – and marking Savoy Brown’s 50th year as pack-leaders of the British blues scene – The Devil To Pay was born during a white-knuckle burst of inspiration. “We recorded the album in April 2015 at SubCat Studios in Syracuse, New York,” reflects Kim. “I record very fast, within two or three days, and most of the work is done in a single day.
The Devil To Pay catches 13 of those moments. While too many of Kim’s peers fall back on creative autopilot in the modern age, this latest album is testament to a questing writer, with endless gas in the tank and a talent for pulling old genres in bold new directions. “Ain’t Got Nobody” opens the set with an aching lament from the bandleader’s lone electric guitar. The barrelling “Bad Weather Brewing” and “Grew Up In The Blues” raise the temperature, while the buoyant bounce of “Oh Rosa” finds Kim’s inimitable fretwork jousting with lusty harp.
Throughout, from the finger-twist instrumental “Snakin’” to the shuffle-powered “Watch My Woman”, Kim’s enduring love-affair with the blues is writ large. “Certainly, the Chicago blues style and the artists I grew up with as a teenager are a primary influence,” he notes. “My heart still jumps when I hear good Chicago blues.”

Muscle Shoals music veteran, Russell Gulley re-vitalized his recording career after over two decades of silence. His last commercial recording had been released in 1980 with the MSS/Capitol recording act, Jackson Highway, a southern rock group nurtured by Jimmy Johnson and David Hood of the Muscle Shoals Sound Recording Studios, the home of the Swampers, the group immortalized by Lynyrd Skynyrd in the southern classic, "Sweet Home Alabama". Russell’s return to recording focused on the roots of the music that first influenced him, a mix of Americana that blends blues, soul, gospel, country, and rock and roll. Gulley is now back at Johnny Neel’s Straight Up Sound in Nashville recording his second solo CD, yet to be titled, but one that continues his journey into the “acoustic swamp” of blues, rock, and Americana.
