In his CD release "Carry On" Jay Ottaway finds inspiration from John Cage to 19th Century German poet Wilhelm Mueller; from prison life to life on the road; from the joys and frustrations of everyday life to the impact of historic events such as the 2013 Boston marathon bombings. The award-winning songwriter/producer's 6th full-length studio CD evokes images of the natural world as both enemy and ally while celebrating and lamenting how life's gifts and cruel twists of fate determine our lives. Like his previous CD "Coming Home to You" (2012), "Carry On" is a collection of 16 songs that moves smoothly between powerful Rock ballads, while touching on Country und Folk, and blasts of Jazz and Blues. The CD opens with a vengeance with "All Right Now," a cathartic cleansing of everyday frustrations that clears the way for "Old Messiah," an ode to the power of love and the natural world. The song was inspired by Wilhelm Mueller's "Lindenbaum," a poem from Mueller's lyric collection "Winterreise" which was made eternal by classical composer Franz Schubert's song cycle. "Old Messiah" is followed by the title track, "Carry On," a power ballad written on the occasion of The Jay Ottaway Band's 2012 visit and performance in a Cologne, Germany prison. Next up is "Blessings in Disguise," a ballad to Ottaway's daughter written after her diagnosis with a rare eye disorder. The rest of the journey includes songs about the quirks of life on the road in "Ringing through My Head," relationship frustrations with "Deep Freeze," and the all too frequent trips back home for funerals in "Man Down." It also captures the beauty and importance of randomness celebrated by musicians and philosophers such as John Cage ("Reason in the Noise"). The CD is dedicated to the memory of the victims of the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing which deeply affected the Boston based songwriter as expressed in "Even Moses Is Crying." "Carry On" is Jay Ottaway's second release for the German label Cactus Rock Records and is truly an international production. It was recorded and engineered in Boston, Nashville, and Cologne, Germany by Cliff Goldmacher, Ben Olendzki, John Escobar, and Jon Stinson. It was mixed by veteran Cologne producer Florian Bechte and mastered in DuÂ¿sseldorf at Skyline Tonfabrik by Kai Blankenberg. Besides european members of his touring band including Christina Christ (sax) and Frank Tetzner (vocals) worldfamous studio musicians from Nashville were part of this project. They include Steve Conn (keys / B3), Andrea Zonn (violin), Andy Leftwich (violin), Pat Buchanan (guitar), Jim Hoke (pedal steel guitar, saxophone), Glen Caruba (drums), Dave Francis (bass), and Melissa Hooker (vocals). Also part of the project is Julian Mueller (vocals, guitar) from Germany who co-wrote "Old World Wine" with Ottaway and Irish lyricist, Michael Cummins.
