Released in February 2014 as Albert’s debut album for Ruf Records, Solid Ground will let the global blues-rock scene discover what the hardcore fans have known from the start. Namely, that here is an artist who sings from the gut, shoots guitar licks from the hip and writes songs that articulate your hopes, fears and heartaches. “Solid Ground is my best album to date,” says the 44-year-old bandleader, simply. “I put more time, love, blood, sweat and tears into this recording than any of the others, and it shows. I love every song on it and I’m sure there’ll be something for everyone to like.”

On production, Mike Zito brings old-school blood-and-thunder to the mix, while his Royal Southern Brotherhood bandmates Yonrico Scott (drums) and Charlie Wooton (bass) provide the bedrock, bolstered by blues harp from Johnny Sansone, the B3 lines of Lewis Stephens and stunt-guitar cameos by Walter Trout and Aynsley Lister. “I first met Laurence in 2012, when his trio opened for Royal Southern Brotherhood on a few UK tour dates,” says Mike, who recently produced Samantha Fish’s breakout Black Wind Howlin’. “He’s a real artist. He had a great big voice and his guitar playing was really strong – but he was also playing original tunes, and that turned me on as well.”
