Sean Chambers - Ten Til Midnight - 2009 - Blue Heat

Be prepared for non-stop guitar pyrotechnics on Ten Til Midnight. Chambers is in no mood to take things easy and just lays it on thick an' smokin'. He toured with Hubert Sumlin, the esteemed elder gent's musical director and guitarist for five years, and not only learned at his feet but ran way ahead in the lesson book and wrote a few new chapters as well. It just doesn't get much better than this. © Mark S. Tucker 2009, Peterborough Folk Music Society © http://www.acousticmusic.com/fame/p05892.htm

To say Sean Chamber's latest release Ten Til Midnight is a guitar heavy album is a bit of an understatement. Though certainly adept as a singer, the six-string is where Chambers truly shines, and he does so on this CD with enough intensity to give his listeners a dark suntan. Chambers' attack on the guitar is similar to that of Stevie Ray Vaughan, Jimi Hendrix, or Luther Allison. On each solo he springs forth a seemingly inexhaustible flurry of notes capable of melting the circuit board of a guitar hero controller. Although his dexterity on the guitar is impressive, he stays grounded in the blues, never straying into shred territory. His original compositions, which dominate the disk, are in the blues rock/roadhouse vein. The album also includes three classic covers, one by Luther Allison, one by Eddie Jones, and one by boogieman Billy Gibbons. For fans of blues guitar Ten Til Midnight is a must. Sean Chambers manages to push the guitar to its limits on this release without losing touch with the blues tradition. **** © Tim Madison – MuzikReviews.com Staff December 14, 2009 © MuzikReviews.com http://www.muzikreviews.com/reviews.php?ID=894

Great blues rock album from the brilliant but underrated Florida based guitarist, Sean Chambers. Like many other guitarists, Sean is often accused of trying to be a carbon copy of guitarists like SRV, Luther Allison, etc. These accusations become boring after a while. How many guitarists can you name who have not been influenced by another guitarist, especially in blues music. There is a difference in copying another musician note for note and trying to emulate a great guitarist’s style and technique. Sean Chambers is in fact, a more accomplished and talented guitarist than some of the “great” guitarists he is accused of mimicking. Buy Sean’s “Humble Spirits” album and support great blues rock [All tracks @ 320 Kbps: File size = 91.6 Mb]

Guitarist, singer, and songwriter Sean Chambers counts Jimi Hendrix and Stevie Ray Vaughan among his primary guitar influences, and their type of guitar stylings can be heard in his recordings and at his live shows. Raised on the Gulf coast of Florida, like so many others enamored with blues and blues-rock who played guitar, the younger Sean Chambers also lent his teenaged ears to recordings by Johnny Winter, Freddie King, B.B. King and Albert King, as well as Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck, and ZZ Top. Chambers released his debut album, Strong Temptation in 1998, after 15 years of playing out in clubs and refining his vocal and guitar talents. After finishing up college, Chambers caught a break in Memphis in 1998 when he was asked to play with former Howlin' Wolf guitarist Hubert Sumlin at a Memphis blues festival. He subsequently toured with the veteran guitarist -- who recovered from cancer to get back on the road -- for the next four years. Chambers has shared stages and sat in with many of his blues and blues-rock heroes, including Derek Trucks, Gregg Allman, Kim Simmons, Tab Benoit, Jeff Healey, Leslie West, Rick Derringer, Pat Travers, Kim Wilson, Bobby "Blue" Bland, Walter Trout, Big Bill Morganfield, Koko Taylor, Ike Turner, and Robert Cray, among dozens of others who frequent the Tampa area club scene. Chambers tours mostly in Florida with the occasional foray north or to the Midwest or to Great Britain. His discography includes just two albums, but a third is in the works. They include Strong Temptation for Vestige Records and 2005's Humble Spirits for Rockview Records. In 2001, Great Britain's Guitarist magazine named Chambers one of the Fifty Greatest Guitarists of all time. © Richard Skelly © 2013 Rovi Corp | All Rights Reserved

Hi,Ernest. There's so much great music out there that is being ignored by the "controlled" media, it bugs me! Guys like Sean Chambers would wipe the floor with half the so called rock stars out there who are conning the public. There's two young girls called Fiomily on Youtube who are playing real music. Check out https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e3pZLBI20FM Thanks & TTU soon....Paul
