Overview

"A POWERFUL WORK OF ART."--Paul Koniecki, Reject Convention

From Post-Beat Generation writer Annette Davol: a scorching Louisiana music-mystery about the extraordinary Court Barrineau, who gave birth to an enchanted guitar and the swamp rock sound that could save the world.

When Barrineau dies for the second time, his protEgE--down-and-out guitar ace Nicky Tree--has the shadow of a big double X looming on his back. Friends are dropping like flies, a hurricane's brewing, and he can't shake an underage stripper known as Angel Love out of his hair or his bed. Finding C.B.'s hexed guitar might quell the storm and give Nicky's band a hit record, but to make it happen he's got to kidnap vintage swamp rock on an electric highway across South Louisiana and cook up a "spell blues." In a heart-thumping scavenger hunt across Louisiana and Texas, Tree and Love match wits with a faceless dark force that seems to unhinge the powers of death, dharma and rock 'n' roll. Unless Tree and Love can piece the musical spell blues together, the state of Louisiana--and an explosive sacred revelation--will be lost forever.

Featuring guest appearances by renowned Louisiana musicians (including Grammy winners Dr. John and Steve Riley, and Louisiana Blues Hall of Famer Lil Buck Sinegal), SPELL BLUES heralds the arrival of a new breed of dark, comedic fable--hijacking you like a runaway swamp rock train right up to the stunning end.
