Sometimes, you run into hard times. They feel like crimes and cost more than ticket fines. Broken guitars, smashed cars, driving further than the stars. Long stays at short hotels, roaming charges, whistles and bells. Me oh my! The dollar was high. The bee's knees cost top fees.
But through it all I was able to record at Sun Studio in Memphis, with the finest session musicians including Johnny Cash's late bass player David Roe and percussionist John Argroves.
The video for "Up and In" is the first release from this session. The video works as homage to Bob Gruen, the infamous personal photographer of John Lennon, and capturer of Bob Dylan, Debbie Harry, Ike & Tina, New York Dolls ETC. It was a thrill to spend some time with him
I'm raising money for the completed full album. Here's where you can donate: www.katiebulley.com This Lone Wolf has transformed to a Sun Wolf. Optimistic times have begun!
Bless you even for a dollar. I'll be tending the bar hoping you holler. If you can't spare it well that's ok, we're in the same boat, sailin' on and away.
Canadian singer-songwriter Katie Bulley (formerly of Hamilton, ON indie rock trio the Barettas) has spent the past few months stateside recording her first-ever full-length, Sun Wolf, at the legendary Sun Studio in Memphis. The album won't be out until spring 2014, but Bulley is already giving us a taste of her debut LP with a video for album cut "Up & In."
An artistic homage to the work of acclaimed rock'n'roll photographer Bob Gruen (who is known for his shots of Bob Dylan, Debbie Harry, the Clash and more), the video finds Bulley traipsing around New York City as she tries to recreate some of his iconic images. Photos of John Lennon abound, which should come as no surprise, considering her last video was released on what would have been his 73rd birthday. -- Exclaim!
