Selwyn Birchwood First Video From ‘Pick Your Poison’

Selwyn-pick-your-poison-Cover-Art_342x342Chicago, Illinois – Guitarist, songwriter and vocalist Selwyn Birchwood has released the first video from his new CD, Pick Your Poison. It is for the song “Guilty Pleasures.” The video, depicts Birchwood happily sinking into the depths of decadence (but with a surprise ending). The Alligator Records release currently sits in the Top 10 on the Billboard blues chart.

On Pick Your Poison, Birchwood, along with his band—saxophonist Regi Oliver, bassist Huff Wright, and drummer Courtney “Big Love” Girlie—takes a major step forward, crafting visionary blues for a new generation of forward-looking fans.

Birchwood, who attacks his guitar and lap steel with searing intensity, wrote and produced all 13 songs on Pick Your Poison. The cutting-edge songs are made all the more impactful by his gruff vocals, untamed musicianship and the band’s seemingly telepathic accompaniment. “I write and sing what I know,” says Birchwood, whose innovations are as expansive as his influences. “This album has a broad reach. It’s for young, old and everyone in between.”

Birchwood’s blistering instrumental skills, his trailblazing, instantly memorable songs, and his gritty, unvarnished vocals place him among the brightest young stars in the blues. His deep familiarity with blues tradition allows him to bust the genre wide open, adding new sounds, colors and textures, all delivered with a revival tent preacher’s fervor and a natural storyteller’s charisma.

Birchwood and his band will spend the summer performing across the US and Canada.
