BLUES: Guitar Blues
The Outlaw Blues is a new subgenre of blues music that draws its influences from the American Southwest, New Orleans, the Mississippi Delta, Rockabilly and Folk Rock with an original Outlaw Beat. This is also the music of a larger worldwide literary movement, the Outlaw Movement. The Outlaw Movement is about artists absorbing outside influences and recreating their art form in their own image. The lyrics originate from Outlaw poetry while the vocal style and music are in themselves, Outlaw, that is a whole variety of musical influences internalized and recreated to revitalize the sound through the persona of the artist. The Outlaw Movement is also enhanced by the spirit of outlaw personas such as Billy the Kid, Jesse James, and John Dillinger. Tony Moffeit and guitarist Rick Terlep capture the musical essence of the movement in this studio release that has been based on Tony and Rick’s nationwide performances over the last few years. This is the Blues “sand papered, sliced, diced, and all scratched to hell.”
Tony Moffeit is the blues poet from Pueblo, Colorado, who was the winner of the prestigious Jack Kerouac Award from Cherry Valley Editions for his volume of poetry, PUEBLO BLUES, now rare and out-of-print. He was also the author of two other volumes from Cherry Valley Editions: LUMINOUS ANIMAL (New Orleans poems) and NEON PEPPERS (Hank Williams poems). His 1995 volume, POETRY IS DANGEROUS, THE POET IS AN OUTLAW from Floating Island Publications, introduced outlaw essays and some early roots of the philosophy of Outlaw Poetry. Moffeit and poet Todd Moore founded the Outlaw Poetry Movement from 2004 to the present through books and chapbooks by the two poets, e-mail correspondence between them, and poems, essays, and manifestos in publications such as ST. VITUS PRESS AND POETRY REVIEW, POESY, SMALL PRESS REVIEW, CHIRON REVIEW, ZEN BABY, DESERT SHOVEL REVIEW, and on https://www.tradebit.com. Moffeit is the author of twenty additional poetry volumes, including TONY MOFFEIT: GREATEST HITS from Pudding House (2004). He has also been the recipient of a National Endowment for the Arts creative writing fellowship in poetry and was the winner of the Thomas Hornsby Ferril Poetry Prize. Moffeit performs his original blues songs and poems with guitarist Rick Terlep, often accompanying himself on conga drum. Tony is also a visual artist who uses a unique process of turning photographs into stunning works of art that are an integral part of the poetry and music of the Outlaw Movement. Tony’s artwork has been shown in several Southern Colorado galleries and is featured on the cover of his latest CD "Outlaw Blues Revolution".
