Let Go Of The Reins


J.P. Soars' 'Let Go Of The Reins' was recorded during a whirlwind weeklong session at Tab Benoit's Whiskey Bayou studios in Houma Louisiana, with J.P on guitar and a band featuring Red Hots bassist Chris Peet on bass, and Benoit on drums. Together they recorded eleven songs in five days- seven originals which they wrote on the spot, plus four choice covers. The inspiration for the album came from the many nights they all spent jamming into the wee hours on the Legendary Rhythm and Blues Cruise and at the Big Blues Bender, and as expected, they captured many magical moments on this record. In the decade since Soars burst upon the national scene by winning 1st place in the Blues Foundation's 2009 International Blues Challenge in Memphis, TN with his band the Red Hots (and was also crowned with the prestigious Albert Kind Award as best guitarist), Arkansas native J. P. Soars has toured extensively. J. P. is soaring high, and psyched about the new record: "'Let Go Of The Reins' was written and recorded very organically and honestly. We captured the moment, and what a spectacular and special moment it was. I hope you enjoy this record as much as we enjoyed making it."
