David Gogo may be most familiar to fans as an electrifying blues-rock guitarist who's shared stages with the likes of Johnny Winter, Blackie And The Rodeo Kings, George Thorogood and The Tragically Hip, but his forthcoming album is an entirely acoustic affair recorded with a single microphone in the kitchen of his Nanaimo, B.C. home.
David Gogo: Acoustic — Official Bootleg Series, Volume 2 will be released on September 26 by Victoria, B.C.-based Cordova Bay Records. Gogo is joined on the record by Rick Hopkins, Gerry Barnum, Rick May, Tina Jones, Jeremy McDonald and Michael Pickett. Rick Salt mixed and mastered the CD in his Island Pacific Studios.
One of the songs on the album, "She's Breakin' Through," is based on a Nanaimo mining disaster where Gogo's great grandfather and many others lost their lives.
Gogo, a past Juno Award nominee, is currently the spokesman for Nanaimo's tourism campaign and is featured in a number of television and print ads promoting the city.
Gogo is no homebody, however, as he'll set out across the country playing a number of acoustic shows in support of his September release. You can catch him here:
