• The song “Chased By Shadows” out now!

    Hi folks,
    Now my song Chased by Shadows is released on digital channels. Feels great! I am very proud of my fellow musicians, Christer Lyssarides, guitars, Björn Gideonsson, drums, and Hans Adamson, keyboards. The recording is produced by Hans Adamson, Los Angeles. There’s a story attached to the production of the song, see the following quote. It gave me tremendous high pulse for 24 hours. Unfortunately we didn’t make it to the film but it led to this release which I’m happy for.
    “We received “Chased by Shadows” only one day before completion of the movie. The director loved the song and wanted to use it in the end titles. The whole sound and music team worked around the clock to fit it in with the existing music, but there just wasn’t time to do a re-write of the existing score, which would have been necessary to transition to the song in a natural way. We were all disappointed.”
    – Amanda Seward, Executive Producer, Beyond Deceit (a new Hollywood feature film, starring Josh Duhamel, Anthony Hopkins and Al Pacino).

    I hope you will enjoy the song!

    BLOOD IN MY EYES FOR YOU – Bert Deivert & Copperhead Run
    There are so many bands around playing the roots Blues trade that it’s easy to miss one that actually does it right and makes you feel the Blues in their soul. Bert Deivert is a new name for me but he plays the Blues as though his soul was born in Mississippi instead of Boston and he has been playing for around 40+ years, now residing in Sweden. A quick look at the song titles is a familiar romp with songs by Big Joe Williams – Baby Please Don’t Go, Son House – Death Letter, a few by Sleepy John Estes and a great version of R.L. Burnside’s Poor Black Mattie, as well as two originals by Deivert.

    The sound is fresh and cleaves close to the acoustic spectrum with Deivert playing a National RM-1 mandolin, drummer Fredrik Lindholm playing his Premier Aquarian drumheads with subtlety and quiet urging. Janne Zander plays a 1938 National and a 1951 Gibson ES-125 delivering some sublime slide and Per-Arne Pettersson is credited with Fender bass and foot stomp. Essentially, this is classic Blues played with a great feel for the music and utter respect while changing the sound to suit their capabilities – the result is pretty damn fine although there is little of the character of the musicians in the playing so honestly do they stick to the songs. Son House’s Death letter is a standout with some delightful mandolin slide and Sleepy John Estes’ Milk Cow Blues has a brilliantly jaunty feel to it, but there isn’t a bad number in the set and the leave the listener with a big smile and uplifted heart. – Andy Snipper Blues Matters, UK

    Deivert is an American mandolin and guitar player with a pleasant singing voice who lives in Sweden. He has graced to B&R’s review pages before in issue 265 when Norman Darwen gave the nod of approval to one of David’s previous releases.
    There are a dozen songs on this release; apart from two of Deivert’s own compositions all are covers. Before listening to this well-produced disc, I was unenthusiastic about reviewing it given the preponderance of covers including four blues by Sleepy John Estes, a Yank Rachell song, and Son House’s Death Letter I have to say that I was pleasantly surprised as this is a very good album with Deivert backed by guitarist, drummer and bassist. The opening number, Big Joe Williams’ Baby Please Don’t Go, is an absolute belter and it is the best version of this classic song that I have ever heard. The whole album is a delight and it is refreshing to hear some blues mandolin. Give yourself a treat and listen to this. – Paul Mooney
