"Okay, forget about the fact that Mike Guldin looks like an insurance salesman or a guy who should be teaching a self-improvement seminar...the fact is, this guy rocks! Mike and his band, Rollin' & Tumblin', jam and swing and play like they really enjoy it. Guldin's voice digs deep into the soul of all that is blues and belts out the tones that make the blues come alive." - James River Blues Society

The Franklin Sessions was born out of the desire to get back to a more organic approach to recording. All the rhythm tracks were cut with one take live in the studio. Kevin McKendree put a great band together: Yates McKendree on drums, David Santos on bass, James Pennebaker on guitar and Kevin on keys for the session and we cut 4 tracks. I was so pleased with the sound, the vibe and Kevin’s guidance I brought my Rollin’ & Tumblin’ Bandmates Bill Sharrow, Billy Wear and Tim Hooper back to The Rock House and recorded 9 tracks over two days with Kevin joining us on keys. These recordings capture the essence of Rollin’ & Tumblin’ and we hope you dig it!
