Living In A Burning House (180 gram orange vinyl LP)

A master class in distinctive, contemporary roots music and positively brimming with catchy lyrics, undeniable grooves and some of the most exhilarating guitar playing in any genre.  Thirteen compelling originals include guitar-driven, horn-fueled declarations of love, rocking reflections on modern life and low and slow ballads, all bound together by Selwyn’s raw, urgent vocals and intense playing.  Produced by Grammy winner Tom Hambridge (Buddy Guy, Christone "Kingfish" Ingram, Susan Tedeschi).  "Rising blues star Selwyn Birchwood puts his own fresh spin on the blues, taking the tradition and making it into something new." —Guitar World
