Kurt Allen has released a music video for his single, “Graveyard Blues.” The track is off Allen’s album, Whiskey, Women, and Trouble, and is featured on the brand new Blues Rock Review Album Sampler Volume 12, now available for free download.
“The song is about the race against time,” says Allen. “Everyone deals with it. It’s that burning drive to get all your goals accomplished before it’s all said and done.” Juxtaposed against the heaviness of the lyrics are visuals that substantially lighten the mood. “I wanted to do something animated in this way, plugging into a more fun style I don’t think I’ve seen anyone do in the blues world, and Smanos (the animator) completely understood what I was going for. He was really able to bring this concept into its fully animated glory.”
