Lowell Shyette -"Americana Artist," has a great new CD, A FREE MAN''S MIND, a wide ranging group of original songs -- from Country to Country-Rock to R & Blues to vintage Pop to Patriotic anthems -- and he''s at home and creative in each groove, as singer, outstanding guitarist and songwriter/arranger. Lowell''s motto, "American music for Real People" says it. Tired of the politics and B.S. in the music business, Lowell Shyette founded his independent, CalBilly Music/Records, to take his musical entertainment directly to music-loving people. (Check out his first Country CD, GOD BLESS JOHN WAYNE!)
A FREE MAN''S MIND is a musical celebration of Lowell Shyette''s 4 decades of dues-paying with his great natural talent in music. He was close to fame as a teen founding member of the Chicago rock band, The Little Boy Blues, with records in the top of local charts, concert appearances with Paul Revere and the Raiders, The Lovin'' Spoonful, The Byrds, The Yardbirds, Sonny & Cher, Simon & Garfunkel---etc! -- and finally, on Dick Clark''s Where the Action Is TV show in Hollywood. BUT Lowell had to report for the Army draft the day after taping that show! This amazing life in the trenches of music has been a long road. See https://www.tradebit.com for more.
On A FREE MAN''S MIND, Lowell does two covers: a driving version of the great 70''s Jimmy Webb hit, Galveston, and a stirring personal, solo guitar/vocal version of The Star Spangled Banner. (He''s been "proud to be the flag-waving kind!" long before 9-11-01!)
Lowell''s eight originals on A FREE MAN''S MIND (an American journey!) begin with the powerful slow rock anthem, A Patriot Heart (and a Free Man''s Mind) -- then the Southern Rock beat of the biker love story, The Rain Was Falling. Then, the "hard-core Bakersfield" Country What if They Close Down All the Honky-Tonks. On to the R& B BLUES, (Don''t tell me ''bout it, Baby, cause) I Don''t Want to Know, Lowell playing some mean blues harmonica, along with GREAT blues guitar! In a pop ballad style, playing electric sitar as one of his leads, Heartbreak Boulevard. Since Lowell loves the West and spent so much of his life there, the folk-rocking Rocky Mountain Fever -- Then Lowell salutes the every-day-hero Long Haul Truckers with the Nashville sound of Christmas Trucking Time, and the https://www.tradebit.comntry Rock sound of Pointed in the Right Direction (also a trucker love story!)
