Living In A Memory - Archie Lee Hooker's New CD!

<p>Hello and thank you for visiting my crowdfunding page. Together with my band The Coast To Coast Blues Band I recorded a brand new album which is set to be released through Dixiefrog France in May&nbsp;2021!<br /> This new CD named &ldquo;Living In A Memory&rdquo; includes 12 new original songs, which just like on my previous album &ldquo;Chilling&rdquo; are mainly stories of my life. A long time ago, my uncle told me that a good song should be about a personal experience. How could you put feeling into a song if you didn&rsquo;t experience it for yourself?</p> <hr /> <p><strong>Funding</strong></p> <p>In order to finalise this Album we are asking you to&nbsp;support&nbsp;us by donating or sharing this campaign!</p> <p>Feel free to choose from our selection of perks and rewards.

Formed by Archie Lee Hooker, the nephew of John Lee Hooker, Archie and his leading hand-picked team are highly recognised for creating compelling, soul-enriching productions that leave their audiences wanting more.&nbsp;</p> <p>Archie was born on Christmas Day of 1949 in Lambert, Mississippi, just 20 miles from the crossroads where Robert Johnson supposedly sold his soul to the devil.<br /> He was the son of a sharecropper, and up until age thirteen, that was the life he was accustomed to. That all changed when he headed up north and found himself standing in the big city of Memphis, Tennessee. The paved roads and city lights felt like a new world to Archie, one that was filled with opportunities. Inspired by the Memphis music scene, it didn&rsquo;t take long for Archie to begin singing with his first gospel group called &quot;The Marvellous Five.&quot; However, December of 1989 was when his passion for Blues started to surface. During this time, Archie lived with his uncle, John Lee (the Boogieman himself) until his death in 2001. Being surrounded by him and other committed, talented, and influencing musicians is what became the catalyst for Archie to crave sharing his own life experiences through music and leave his lasting impressions.&nbsp;</p> <p>Though Archie left for France in 2011 to join Carl Wyatt &amp; The Delta Voodoo Kings to tour Europe, he eventually chose to seek the right musicians to have on his side. He wanted a team that resembled family, chemistry, and a bond unlike any other. Once he found them, Archie founded the Archie Lee Hooker &amp; The Coast to Coast Blues Band, which was specially named after the late John Lee&rsquo;s Coast to Coast Blues Band. Since then, the crew has done nothing but thrive and impress. They released their first album called &lsquo;Chilling&rsquo; under the French label Dixiefrog in 2018, which received a 5-star review in Rolling Stone Magazine. Fast forward to today, they have recorded a new 12 song CD called &lsquo;Living in a Memory&rsquo;, and this all-original playlist of storytelling art is set to be released through Dixiefrog worldwide on April 16th, 2021.&nbsp;</p> <p>In the end, every song and performance that Archie Lee Hooker &amp; The Coast to Coast Blues Band creates paints an incredible picture that inevitably provokes uplifting emotional influences and invested attraction. They are entirely passionate about delivering remarkable music, and continuously provide fully authentic productions that have shaped them to become what they are today. With their immense drive and determination, it is exciting to see what they will launch next.</p> <p><img alt="" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/704618/7b8d61de-61b7-43c8-b981-d3e3d83beb56.jpg" width="100%" /></p> <p><strong>Band Members&nbsp;</strong></p> <p>Archie Lee Hooker (USA) as lead singer<br /> Fred Barreto (Brazil) on lead guitar<br /> Matt Santos (Brazil) on Hammond &amp; Harmonica<br /> Nicolas Fageot (France) on bass<br /> Yves &ldquo;Deville&rdquo; Ditsch (Luxembourg) on Drums</p> <p><img alt="" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/704626/a28ec93a-df56-44c4-896d-bf2c153cfffb.gif" width="100%" /></p>
