Like the steady pendulum of a land oil rig, Americana songwriter Kory Quinn has tapped inspiration-and greater purpose-with his new EP, Black Gold Blues. Sharp and critical, Black Gold Blues swings between misery and pride of the working class. He explores the complex relationships inherent in the immorality of modern capitalism and the individual purpose found in the work. With uncanny awareness he understands the exact point where two disparate paradigms collide.
Black Gold Blues bobs between the melancholy and the irrepressibility of humanity in the face of widespread corruption and exploitation, and the greater implications of society's current reliance on oil and fossil fuels, corrupt political leaders, and fear. But even as it tackles such heaviness, it's music is boisterous and driving, a perfect rallying call for humanity from the heart of a working man
