LIFE ON THE ROAD IN THIS GREAT LAND DISTILLED IN SOUND & VISION
"Woodie Guthrie was a huge influence for us and we truly believe in the power of song," said Great American Taxi frontman
Vince Herman in a recent interview. "[Songs about hard luck times tend to] hold a man up and make him
feel stronger than he is — and they make him feel good about his community. We want to address the issues
appropriate to our times, while making music that gets people up and moving."
But no one can accuse Taxi of crying the blues. Even Great American Taxi protest songs are generally up-beat,
containing Cajun, calypso, and bluegrass melodies and a retro, '70s feel — think the Grateful Dead, Wilco, and the
Byrds. "We like to get as much dancing going as possible," said Herman, who enjoys experimenting with traditional
Southern boogie and swampy blues-rock sounds.
Here's the new video from GAT's latest album, Reckless Habits (here).
