One of the tracks on SEAWORTHY SOULS, titled SOME CALL IT HAMPTON ROAD reflects the sound and feel of the area where Friel lives and speaks to the regions challenge to establish a recognizable name for itself.
SEAWORTHY SOULS is the follow-up to Friel’s second solo album, the 2012 release, PASSAGE. Like PASSAGE, THE NEW EP is produced by New Moon Music, the album was recorded and mixed by Skip Friel’s brother Randy Friel at Scullville Studios of Scullville, NJ. Randy is the founder of New Moon Music, an independent record label specializing in blues and roots music. He has worked with such music greats as Levon Helm, Bruce Springsteen, The Dixie Hummingbirds, and Larry Campbell.
