Paxton Norris "Something's Gotta Give"
For a Debut Album, "Something's Gotta Give", is exceptionally good. Lots of great songs on this one and quite reminenscent of Gregg Allman and the Allman Brothers. Truly great Vocals and wonderful Guitar work.
Favorite 3 songs were Track 2 "Living Tight", Track 4 "Hear Say", and Track 10 "Your My Girl"...

Debut album "Something's Gotta Give" features some heavy hitting blues Detroit style. Co written and produced by Motor City Josh. Powerful vocals with an Albert King meets Wes Montgomery guitar style Paxton proves he has a lot to give to the Blues.
High energy contemporary blues with a Detroit influence. Paxton Norris' debut CD "Something's Gotta Give" is the product of being born and raised in southern Michigan. Soulful vocals and polished guitar lines reminiscent of the Motown era. Backed by a hand picked rhythm section of the hottest players on the blues scene this album has a nice mix of original songs and a couple choice covers. Freddie Kings "My Credit Didn't Go Through" and a rearranged version of Bobby Blue Bland's "Love Light". National artist Motor City josh, Victor Wainwright and Tyler Mac add their flavor on "That Woman's Trouble" and "These Funking Blues". Taking his queues from BB.King, Albert King, MCJ and Wes Montgomery Paxton proves he has a lot to give.
I'm a fulltime touring Musician,Artist,Guitar Player.Based out of Indianapolis, my roots go back to Michigan in the early 90's where I cut my teeth in all of Michigans Blues Clubs and Blue Collar GM factory bars. Influenced by SRV, Albert King, BB. King, Freedie King, Michigan Legends Bob Seger, Larry McCray and Motor City Josh. I record in Detroit MI where you'll hear the Motown sound everpresent in my music. Stop by the player and listen to a track. -Paxton
