I love the storytelling on “Find a Bridge.” That’s because the soulful “I’ve gotta work to be okay” sort of track has a darker undertone to it behind the sweet guitar licks. “Bridge” also doubles as a story of someone dealing with the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. The song repeatedly lays out the problems that arose after Katrina. From not being able to cross the street to one’s house, people and things floating away as they try to hold on and a plea of sorts to get someone to help.
If you’re a fan of instrument-heavy soul music with a message, this one’s definitely up your alley. The 70-year-old singer/songwriter has a lot of experience due to his connections within the Midwest music scene of the 70s and 80s (along with his studies of artists like B.B. King).
