Eric Bibb releases the first track of his forthcoming new album, Ridin’ with a song called “Family”
At a time of year when loved ones are planning to spend more time together, the single Family is the perfect soundtrack.
“With so much social divisiveness and side-taking in the world today, I’m eager to share songs that encourage unity and communication. “Family”, the first single and lead-off track from my upcoming album, Ridin’, is that kind of song. To my delight, thanks to producer Glen Scott’s total command of the vernacular of Soul, this funky track turned into a tribute to Sly & The Family Stone. I’m playing a vintage 6-string banjo and in the intro I quote an old song, Two Brothers, which tells the story of siblings who fought on opposing sides during the American Civil War. It’s seemed fitting.” – ERIC BIBB
