‘Black Snake’ reflects on Ernesto Gomez’ experience on the Standing Rock Sioux Indian reservation in North Dakota, opposing the construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline.
Fatboy Wilson & Old Viejo Bones is a new project from acclaimed Brooklyn folk and blues musicians Samoa Wilson and Ernesto Gomez. Their self titled debut album features five brand new original songs as well as inventive interpretations of a diverse range of folk and blues songs.
Samoa Wilson is widely regarded as one of the best blues, jazz and folk singers in New York City. Ernesto Gomez, originally from the Union City, NJ has been writing songs and playing blues harmonica and guitar for a number of years with his band the Brotherhood of the Jugband Blues.
The composite combination of ol’ native folk and glitteringly solemn poetry, makes it hard not to lean hard into the darkened grays of ‘Black Snake’.
The enchantment glistens.
Want and need more? There’s their full self-titled album for that.
