Simplicity doesn’t mean simple, certainly when it comes to music. The music of Gadsen, Alabama’s own, Albert Simpson, is certainly no exception.
His Southern, funky folk sound and his rich Alabama accented voice are only the surface elements of the complex, honest and revealing songwriting that lies beneath.
While having often been seen working in collaborative settings, such as Highly Kind (who’s album Don’t Wake Albert stands as a landmark work for Allman Brothers and Widespread Panic producer Johnny Sandlin) and as a guest member of The Outsider's (who shared the stage with Phil Lesh, the late great Col. Bruce, San Francisco Giant Jake Peavy, with many other well known talented artists * at the Fillmore in San Francisco for a Jerry Garcia Tribute show.
Albert tends to perform solo but does so with all the bravado and musical complexity of a full band, delivering one of the most complete sounds from a solo artist you are likely to hear anywhere.
Albert's solo albumn, "Roll Your Mind" is one hundred percent authentic Albert, having written, performed all instruments and had a hand in producing. This is an organic effort to express himself as he hears the music in his mind.
Now signed with Ten Ton Records, which is another grass roots movement headed up by Jeremy Stephens out of Muscle Shoals, who was the long time engineer of Johnny Sandlin, and made up of a round table of extremely talented artists determining their own path through the maze of the music imdustry. Jeremy and Albert are in sync with capturing his authentic southern sound, releasing "End of the Line" & " Pieces".
More recently, Albert continues to tour largely in the Southeast, however Albert is constantly expanding his touring horizons to now include all three continental coasts and beyond so keep your eyes open and don’t miss this talented musician when we comes your way.
