Heartbreaker – Our fourth Breeze & Wilson CD now, and still struggling to come up with a comfortable description of our music. Someone suggested ‘relaxing’….but singing about dysfunctional people and their relationships, cheating and lying doesn’t really fit….does it?

INFIDELITY – The third Breeze & Wilson CD released, and still not sure what we call this genre of music. When we’re asked, we hesitate and stumble with words like “eclectic” and “don’t know”, but we should probably have a stab at labelling it. Can we say blues with a smattering of folk and Americana, and occasional nods towards jazz …or have we already drifted too far in our definition? We try not to say “depressive” because we tend to lose a section of our audience immediately, but reflective and thoughtful could be used, as long as we don’t drift into talking of drink and death too much. There has been a movement towards a more dysfunctional relationship storyline, and this has had a tendency to slip into harsh but common stories of infidelity, with occasional black humour slipped in to slightly ease the tension …or in some cases, probably intensify the tensions …. depending on the listener’s moral compass.
So, here we are, untitled and still struggling to place our songs. Maybe we should ask you to suggest a neat description for us …. and in Breeze & Wilson fashion, award a prize for the good description that we can use when asked …
“just what sort of music do you two play then?”
RETROSPECTIVE – This is a collection of the first songs recorded by Breeze & Wilson as a duo. The first CD called “Comin’ Apart Together” featured six tracks. This CD was recorded as a sampler of how we sounded live. One track is omitted, “Every Time I Roll The Dice” which didn’t feel quite good enough to re-mix… and troublesome to re-record, so we replaced it with a bonus track – a live version of another Delbert McClinton song “I Wanna Thank You Baby”. The second CD, “What’s The Trouble With Mary” also featured 6 tracks. On this one we decided to present what we wanted to hear, rather than restrict ourselves to a non-produced sound. This CD featured “Harriet ́s Song”, written about our good friend Harriet Bartlett. It was this song (discovered on the net by Jim Hahnen from Nova Scotia, Canada) that was played by Stan Carew on his CBC radio show Weekend Mornings, which led to our warm and affectionate affaire with the people of Canada’s eastern regions.
