UK-based blues/rock guitarist, vocalist, and songwriter Aynsley Lister announces his eighth studio album Along For the Ride. It’s set to release on November 11th, 2022 on his own Straight Talkin’ Records imprint and was produced by Scott McKeon.
Lister has built his reputation as an incredible live performer and one of the world’s top guitar players. He’s supported major artists including Jools Holland, John Mayall, Robert Cray, Buddy Guy, Walter Trout, and ZZ Top, sold over 100,000 records, and received countless rave reviews. He has also won the Songwriter of the Year Award from the British Blues Awards. Now, with a hotly-anticipated nationwide tour and the release of Along For The Ride, there has never been a better time to be an Aynsley Lister fan.
Along For The Ride sees Lister dig deep into his rich blues influences, his trademark storytelling and his ability to craft anthemic rock tracks. Lister puts his heart and soul into his own brand of contemporary blues/rock music, one fueled by an all-out, amp-to-11 musical philosophy.
Lister’s new single from the 13-track album is “Made Up My Mind.” It’s a mighty blues/rock track with groove, banging drums, and a hint of Hendrix mixed with his own crisp, soulful vocals. “Made Up My Mind” features Lister on guitar and vocals, Stuart Ross on bass, Russ Parker on drums, Ross Stanley on Hammond, Scott McKeon on guitars/percussion, and Gavin Conder on backing vocals.
Listen “Made Up My Mind”
The 13-track LP Along For The Ride takes listeners on a musical trip through swelling choruses, tender moments, and everything else possible in between. Deep into his own sonic journey, Lister branches out here from the 60s and 70s blues influences that soundtracked his childhood to contemporary songwriting and production that’s destined for stadiums. Lister is a performer worthy of some serious listening time and you need to give it to him starting now.
