As the golden leaves of September fall, music enthusiasts are treated to the rising melodies of two new singles heralding the much-anticipated album “Movin’ On” by Leo Lyons, set for release on October 6, 2023.
Leo Lyons, with his legendary history tied to Ten Years After, has been an iconic figure in the rock music realm for decades. In the summer of 2010, Lyons, alongside Joe Gooch of Ten Years After, embarked on a fresh musical journey, forming the band Hundred Seventy Split. This trio was not just another name in the industry; they were an explosive, high-energy blues-rock powerhouse, demonstrating the amplified prowess of their combined skills.
For those unfamiliar with the legacy of Ten Years After, let’s take a quick trip down memory lane. They were the unsung heroes who stole the spotlight at the iconic 1969 Woodstock Festival. Their electrifying performance didn’t just make waves in the crowd; it etched their name in rock history, notably highlighted in both the festival’s soundtrack album and its Academy Award-winning film.
Fast forward to the present day, and the spirit of rock is very much alive. September’s releases give us a taste of what’s to come in the “Movin’ On” album, with two singles that exude both raw energy and nuanced artistry:
- “Walking in the Devil’s Shoes”
Walking in the Devil’s Shoes” recounts the journey of an individual who’s traveled far and wide with their guitar, sharing their story through music. At a significant crossroads in their life, they encounter a man who offers them a tempting yet potentially damning opportunity. Succumbing to the allure, the individual takes the offered “boat,” sealing their fate to walk in the devil’s shoes. The song touches upon themes of temptation, consequences of choices, and the struggles of reconciling past actions with present circumstances. As the narrative unfolds, the protagonist realizes the gravity of their decisions, lamenting the irreversible path they’ve chosen and the longing for what once was.
- “It’s so Easy to Slide
As our anticipation for “Movin’ On” heightens, there’s another musical treat on the horizon. Mark your calendars for September 15th, as “It’s so Easy to Slide” is set to be released. Stay tuned for this upcoming single and let the music move you.
