"In the darkest of your days, I'll be the one to tie your noose/Just to watch you swing and sway..." says Lee Miles a.k.a. Chief Ghoul
on "Done Dabbled," off of his upcoming III
LP. It's a dark message, but delightfully menacing and supremely evocative. I picture Bob Dylan strolling the backwoods of the Mississippi Delta on October 31st, knocking on cabin doors and returning greetings with an empty stare and a solemn song.
For a 13 track LP consisting solely of vocals and guitar, III
remains surprisingly captivating throughout. Chief Ghoul is a talented guitarist and songwriter, experimenting with elements of alt-country, blues and folk to darkly wonderful effect. His distorted acoustic guitar tone paired with his wistful, vengeful storytelling makes for an emotional, active listening experience. And that's no accident; "The recording process as well as part of the writing process for these 13 songs took place at a fairly trying time in my life, and I think it only helped to add emotion to each track," explains Miles. "This will be my third release and Im extremely proud of it."
