D.C. Bloom is a new man these days. After suffering a stroke during songwriterâs night at the San Marcos, TX music hall Cheatham Street Warehouse in August 2010, Bloom decided to turn over a whole pile of leaves. So nasty old habits were discarded and healthy ones embraced. After he kept hearing friends say, âYou sure are a new man,â he knew heâd found the title of the album heâd been recording when health issues sidelined him for five months.
When D.C. returned to South Austinâs Byrd House Studio, he was, indeed, a new man ... with a brand new song. Another Day, the first song heâd written after regaining his fingerpicking touch and singing ability opens New Man. Itâs a rollicking celebration of life and a thankfulness to have â ... another day to pick and grin, another day to deal me in,â as D.C. sings over a joyous amen choir and a gospel wall of saxophone, mandolin, fiddle and banjo sound. Itâs a newfound perspective grounded in old-time religion.
New Man, Bloomâs third solo release and coming on the heels of 2010âs 5-song EP Cinco de Star-Oh!, finds D.C. bringing an array of styles to the easy way with words that has earned D.C. praise as a unique songwriter who wonât be confined ... or easily defined. Bloomâs Americana is a broad musical and thematic landscape stretching coast to coast. Itâs not the same-old, same-old concrete interstate lined with familiar, but boring franchises; itâs the memorable scenic route of a two-lane blacktop meandering through the land of heart and hope.
From the swinging clarinet-driven ode to donatable footwear, Dusty Wingtip Shoes, and the haunting song of a loverâs longing On That Primal Shore, to the swamp rock sound of Omaâs Secret Garden, a âcanât we all just get alongâ desire expressed in Points of View or the 50 ways to waste time watching mindless TV enumerated in a Sitcom world, Bloomâs latest release is a fun, yet thoughtful roadtrip that the listener will want to travel time and time again. Joined once again by some of the finest musicians and coolest voices Austin has to offer, New Man features contributions from the likes of Warren Hood on violin and mandolin, Chip Dolan on keyboards and accordion, John Mills on flute, Dave Scherr and Greg Whitfield on lead guitar, LeeAnn Atherton (vocals - Dusty Wingtip Shoes, Yes, Indeedy) Mo McMorrow (duet on Sexual Tension), Jana Pochop (vocals on Fits and Starts) and Elizabeth Wills & Kristin DeWitt (vocals on Sitcom).
D.C. BLOOM'S SONGS HAVE AN INTELLIGENT CUTTING EDGE, FROM OUTRAGEOUSLY CLEVER TO POIGNANTLY THOUGHT PROVOKING. HE'S A GREAT ENTERTAINER AND A RECOMMENDED LISTEN. Lloyd Maines
LISTEN TO THE SWINGINGLY ECLECTIC NEW MAN AND I DARE YOU NOT TO DIG D.C.âS UNAPOLOGETICALLY UN-P.C. POINTS OF VIEW, DELIGHTFULLY SKEWED WIT AND WIRY WORDPLAY, APPARENT SEXUAL TENSION AND DATED SITCOM ADDICTIONS AND - JUST WHEN YOU LEAST EXPECT IT - DISARMING HEART, SINCERITY, AND OPTIMISM.
