(Saol Records) 11 tracks One of Ireland's finest guitarists / singer-songwriters returns with his seventh album! Eamonn McCormack is a wonderful singer, powerful storyteller, world class guitarist, brilliant song craftsman and unrivaled live persona.
The power and extensive keyboard of emotions that Eamonn McCormack can express with his guitar did not go unnoticed for long, and he became a celebrated, welcome guest for world-class artists - including some of his lifelong idols - to play, tour and record with. Rory Gallagher, Johnny Winter, Jan Akkerman, Walter Trout and others successfully banked on his talent, and some returned the favor by contributing to Eamonn's own recordings.
With guests such as Edgar Karg on bass and Max Jung-Poppe on drums and percussion, Eamonn McCormack and his band recorded eleven honest, masterfully thought-out stories that present themselves as vivid, warm memories, observations and reflections, all carefully selected and shaped by a compelling voice into exciting musical narratives. For authenticity writ large, "Storyteller" is powered by a revving instrumental engine that emits smoky blues, singer-songwriter, traditionally-inspired and thoroughly inciting rock in a wide range of facets and emotions, the core of which was recorded live in the studio.
