Album Notes
Foot-stomping Hawaiian-bluegrass, haunting, blues-inflected melodies and a twisted rhythmic sensibility characterize the Blue Island Trio’s music. With compelling original compositions, Tim Tweedale sees just how far he can stretch instrumental music for lap steel guitar, while remaining true to the instrument’s roots in Hawaiian, bluegrass, and blues music.

Jeff Spencer

wow!. The rhythm just hits you.
Some very 'clean' playing on lap with rhythms that just hit the soles of the feet. A feast for the ears for us wannabe lap steel players.

Brad at CD Baby

These guys must have a terribly frustrating time trying to figure out which genre of music to classify themselves as. While these instrumental songs are certainly rooted in blues, there is so much supplemental activity within the tracks that it seems unfair to brand this group with any definitive label. So let's skip that part and concentrate on the music, shall we? This three piece is delicate in nature, but the intensity and ambition of the songwriting proves that they are in no way restraining themselves. Together, the tracks certainly fit, but each song maintains a distinctly different feel than the previous one. This can be largely attributed to the array of guitars used on the album, and the adjusted style of playing that accompanies each one. The group is comfortable throughout, showcasing a sound that, as previously stated, has its basis in blues, but expands out to feature elements of bluegrass, jazz, and a very prominent Hawaiian feel that seems to be the most consistent theme over the course of the 10 songs. I don't throw the term "original sound" around very often, but it's certainly applicable here. Take a listen and hear for yourself.
