"'Blood Moon' Is True Classic Rock"

This review was originally published on Indie Voice Blog.

"Classic rock" is more than just a musical genre. It encapsulates a sound and a generation where social ills were addressed in powerful lyrics over a screaming guitar riff. It is not ashamed of its country roots, and incorporates elements of bluegrass, country and folk into its mix.

Morgan Washam has captured that sound with his debut solo record, Blood Moon, which was released in September 2015. Like true classic rock, his music combines the essence of folk, country, blues, rock and jazz under the Americana umbrella, while his lyrical content is inspired by his life experiences as well as his views on spiritual and political events.

Washam is a singer/songwriter and guitarist hailing from the Appalachian hills of Ohio who has been performing music since the age of 11 when he first picked up his mom's guitar. During his early career he played in many groups, with the most notable being the jam band Peach Melba with whom he toured throughout the Midwestern United States from 1996 until 2004, when the group disbanded. During that time, the group recorded three albums.

In 2007, Morgan launched his own production house called Wildwood Media. The company continues to produce creative projects for regional artists as well as for educators and organizations throughout southern Ohio.

From the first notes of "On Down the Road," the listener will think he has stumbled onto a classic track by The Marshall Tucker Band, The Allman Brothers or Lynyrd Skynyrd. This sense of familiarity permeates the album and makes it seem like you are listening to an old friend instead of a new artist.

This album is worthy of repeated listens. The lyrical content is full of meat and words to ponder, unlike so much fluff in today's music scene. We highly recommend our viewers check out this artist and enjoy Blood Moon for what it is: a true classic. The music is available for streaming on Spotify and for download through Google Music, iTunes and Amazon Music. - Indie Voice Blog/No Depression

"Morgan Washam Freeways of Time Single Review"

Freeways of Time is a standout single from Morgan Washam’s latest album, Blood Moon. This track has a timeless feel to it that ensures that fans of the 1970s pop-country of John Denver and John Berry can appreciate.

Washam is able to include smart instrumentation and a taut sound to Freeways of Time that makes the track glean, while Morgan’s vocals create something that is honest and realistically captures the variety of life in the Appalachians. Vocal and instrumental sides unite to make something special here, impacting listeners in a way few current efforts can. Blood Moon can be purchased from online retailers (Amazon, iTunes, and Google Play). -
