Album Notes

Kansas City based Leved Town can reach down and give you that true Delta Blues sound as well as their favroite Chicago style blues. Their deep and soulful guitar riffs combined with a perfect chemistry of funky bass and down and dirty harmonica wail brings this band together with a rhythm that is clearly beyond their years.

The band consists of guitarist/vocalist Brandon Hudspeth, Jimmie Meade on harmonica/vocals, Jacque Garoutte on bass/vocals and Jan Faircloth on drums.

Brandon Hudspeth moved to Kansas City in 1997 and established himself as a solid performer, starting with the Mo City Jumpers. He then started his own band, The Cobalt Project, which enjoyed local and regional success with the release of the CD 'Conversations With Lightnin''. He also played with Little Hatch and the House Rockers, Lee McBee and shared the stage with severl other local bands before forming Levee Town.

Jimmie Meade grew up in Chicago and began playing harmonica as a teenager studyiing under Joe Filisko the great open harp surgeon. He was seen sneaking into several clubs in the area to play with harp masters Little Mack Simmons, Eddie "The Cheif" Clearwater and John Primer. After moving to Lawrence, Kansas, he began studying with Lee McBee and now he teaches at the American Music Academy in Lawrence, Kansas.

Jacque Garoutte has been in the music busiiness for 26 years and has gigged or toured with a long list of musicians such as Ace Moreland, Smoot Mahuti, Baby Jason and the Spankers, Randy McAllister, Glen R. Townsend, Smokin'Joe Kubek & Benois King, Andrew 'Junior Boy' Jones, Smilin' Willie Guiedon and Wes Jeans.

Jan Faircloth, the newest member of the band, has musical influences that range from Art Blakely and Elvin Jones to John Bonham and Buddy Miles. Jan has also played with several Kansas City Bands such as Lonnie Ray, Millage Gilbert, Buck Brown and has toured the United States and Canada with the Scott Ellison Band.
