KING DUDE - SONGS OF FLESH & BLOODÉ
Vinyl LP pressing. King Dude's 2015 full length is his most personal writing to date. This is not only a spiritual revelation, but also a revelation of the life of the man behind the music. TJ Cowgill's own recent real life experiences with love, loss, death and violence are illuminated and explored herein, sure to be canonized alongside the rest of his work. Reverent as it is prophetic and stark, King Dude has previously shared his spiritual visions with releases on various labels. Pulling together the biblical sound and isolation of the bygone days of revelation with an atmosphere filled with hope and salvation, King Dude has woven his own brand of American music. He brandishes many varied influences in his songwriting. Everything from British Folk, Americana, Country and Blues can be heard in his songs. Even the heavier sounds of Heavy Metal tend to sneak and slither its way into the King Dude canon. The resulting songs are much more of a modern day hymn than your average pop song. King Dude's music begs the soul to lift itself up from the darkness of ignorance, towards the ever shining glorious "Light" that exists outside of all of us yet that which we are eternally connected to and at once connects everyone on Earth.
