After suffering a massive stroke earlier this year Sean Demery has died. My buddy Steve Craig said it best –
Words cannot adequately express the love & gratitude I have for Sean Demery. For 40 years, he’s been my best friend, best man, mentor, career counselor, confidant and so much more. He taught me what unconditional friendship really is.
There is a void inside drowning in the feeling that this is all a dream. I can’t remember a time in my life when you weren’t the musical standard in this city. RIP in peace Col. Bruce! God bless you my friend and God bless your family! Thanks for everything!
In 2008 I was managing The Beggars’ Guild and booked a gig in south Georgia. The bar, the name escapes me, was a small town soldier bar and seemed right up our alley. “This”, as I emphatically stated with waving arms and supercharged emotion to the band, “was the perfect bar for TBG. This could be our home away from home!” Well, not so fast there Tits McGhee.
Leigh is an authentic songstress with southern grit and a weathered drawl and 1978 DECEMBER embodies southern resolve at its finest, illuminating her sophisticated talent for blending country, blues, soul, and rock into one genuine, powerful sound. Like everything else she’s done, 1978 DECEMBER is the sound of Leigh expressing her soul.
