The T-Roosters Blues Band is born from the love and passion of four musicians for African-American music, starting from its origins to modern times. For this reason, Tiziano “Rooster” Galli – Guitars and Vocal, Lillo Rogati – Bass, Giancarlo “Silverhead” Cova – Drums and percussion and Marcus “Bold Sound” Tondo – Blues Harp, has been active on the italian blues scene and also overseas.
Everything begun with the collaboration between Tiziano “Rooster” Galli and Paolo Cagnoni as author and co-author of all the songs on the CD. They present an autography on the world wich we live, with intimate looks into the private feelings of both musician and listener. Our fears, our hopes, our loves and the uncertainties of everyday life are offered up as songs.
The T-Roosters Blues Band has always had one fundamental thread: the balance and union between music and lyrics. They tell the story of daily life, while at the same time painting a picture through the music of emotions, suggestions and most importantly reflection on living.
Each CD includes, in fact, a sleeve containing all the lyrics. The first CD, “Dirty Again”, was a success, that brought them to USA. The International Blues Challenge in 2016, Memphis Tennessee, was a high point of growth, supplying concrete, enthusiastic answers. There, in the homeland of the blues, where this music was born, The T-Roosters were accepted with open arms as a band with an international language that everyone understand.
Their new work, “Another Blues to Shout” was born by blending the group’s respect for the traditional afro-american sound with that of the Blues, Soul, R’&’B, Boogie and Southern Music. Mississippi is naturally the sacred heart and point of reference of the Blues and therefore The T-Roosters add a touch of “hot sauce” and lots of southern spice.
Another fundamental element is Tiziano’s vocal, which creates the intense mood of Soul and suffering. “Another Blues to Shout” is the result of musical research exploring the roots of Soul while reworking the framework through a musician’s sensibility. It becomes a leap into tradition while staying in touch with the present and the future. The sound is profoundly blues, and by tailoring and personalising the music of great past musicians.
This artistic journey has lead to frequent live shows as well as T-Roosters many hours in the studio. The pathway is costantly more solid and more worldwide. As Antonio Avalle writes on the CD cover: “music becomes an experience without precedence, seen through a rare form of the Blues, extracted from the world troubles”.
