New Music Tuesday: Gerry Spehar – Anger Management [Album]

First and foremost, I have to be honest when I say that I was sadly uninformed when it came to the genius of the great Gerryy Spehar…..until now. Now, I am slightly informed, and feel as though I need to know so damn much more. This is because of the idea that if his amazing record Anger Management is any indication of what this man has been doing throughout his career, then I have definitely been missing out over the years. I now consider myself a HUGE fan of Gerry, based on the contents of the album I am here to talk to you all about today.

Anger Management is the modern equivalent to all of those old and beautiful Woody Guthrie-esque protest songs that are held dearly in the annals of history. And while those old folk songs are definitely special for very good reasons, Gerry Spehar has creating something uniquely different, and actually a bit more impressive in my own opinion. Gerry blends classic old timey folk songs with a brilliant seasoning of blues and rock & roll, and even a bit of a country ballad feel at times, that makes for an album that is not only important to our current political climate, but also sounds absolutely amazing! While I do appreciate a good protest song for its basic nature, it always has more of an impact when there is immense talent involved. And Spehar is definitely an extremely talented singer and musician, as well as a mesmerizing songwriter.

Whether it is a slow paced and gut-wrenching ballad like “A Soldier’s Spiritual”, the high-speed satirical folk ditty “Thank You Donald”, the 90’s alternative like cut “Except For the Bomb”, or the seriously funky, blues-driven “Bitch Heaven”, I am here to tell you that Gerry Spehar’s Anger Management is without a doubt one of the best albums you are going to hear in 2018. And even more so, this music is absolutely timeless and should be the catalyst for people to listen to 100 years in the future to truly understand what these days were like. This is a perfect album with a perfect message, and most importantly, it is an absolute joy to listen to!

Gerry Spehar’s Anger Management will be available on May 18th wherever you find music. Check out his WEBSITE for more details!
