Today, American blues musician Austin Walkin’ Cane reveals a video for “Waiting for a Little Sunshine,” the first single from his highly anticipated new album, Muscle Shoals, set  for international release on March 17th via Hoboville Records. See & hear Austin Walkin’ Cane‘s “Waiting for a Little Sunshine” video in its entirety HERE at Metalville Records‘ official YouTube channel.

Austin Walkin’ Cane has traveled the world singing the blues with only a guitar and suitcase in hand. The singer/slide guitarist says, “B.B. King’s Live at the Regal was the album that led me to the blues at 14 years old. B.B.’s voice and guitar blew my mind! Then I started digging deeper and found Howlin’ Wolf, Muddy Waters, John Lee Hooker, and Robert Jr Lockwood. A few months later, Robert Johnson’s King of the Delta Blues Singers Vol. I & II fueled my obsession with slide guitar.”

The album was inspired by the legendary FAME Recording Studios in Muscle Shoals, Alabama. Legends such as Aretha Franklin, Wilson Pickett, and Otis Redding recorded hits in Studio A. The Allman Brothers had their first jam in Studio B.

Muscle Shoals was recorded live in the studio without overdubs. The songs were recorded in a single afternoon and rounded off by legendary producer Don Dixon at Spa Studio.

Muscle Shoals is the second release on the newly founded label Hoboville Records. The idea to establish a new label under the umbrella of Flying Dolphin Entertainment – which also houses Metalville Records, among others – was born out of the fact that there is a growing demand for honest, handmade songs among music lovers.

Hoboville doesn’t stick to any one style, but unites such different genres as blues, gospel, or Americana under one roof. The only criterion is simply GOOD MUSIC!
