Shawn Holt & The Teardrops

Daddy Told Me

Daddy Told Me
BPCD 5156
Genre: Blues
Released: 1 October 2013
The blues world mourned the passing of Magic Slim this past Spring, and now the Fall is bringing a new recording showcasing the passing of the torch from one generation to the next.

Daddy Told Me is the debut release by Slim’s son, Shawn Holt, with the high energy, hard-driving sound of his old man’s band, The Teardrops.

Shawn Holt’s booming vocal presence is reminiscent of his father’s, while his guitar playing exhibits a broader mix of classic and contemporary influences. On this album he mixes five of his own compositions, with two of his Dad’s songs and rounds off with some tunes that are connected with Magic Slim, leading the Teardrops into a new era.

Blues luminary John Primer, a former Teardrop, is featured on two tracks.
