Soul singer Billy Price teamed with award-winning guitarist and producer Kid Andersen to create RECKONING, Price’s 16th career recording. The sessions at Andersen’s Greaseland Studio in San José, California brought together a stellar collection of West Coast musicians and singers to support Price’s seasoned vocals. Andersen and drummer Alex Pettersen, both of Rick Estrin & the Nightcats,were joined on all tracks by Jim Pugh, veteran keyboard player for Robert Cray and Etta James among others, and the legendary Jerry Jemmott on bass. Jemmott’s long list of credits include recordings and live performances with Aretha Franklin, B.B. King, Ray Charles, Wilson Pickett, and Duane Allman. Also appearing on RECKONING are sax player Johnny Bones of the California Honeydrops, Rusty Zinn on background vocals, and Little Village Foundation gospel recording artists the Sons of the Soul Revivers.
Billy Price has been performing throughout the East Coast and the world since the early 1970s, when he was featured vocalist with guitarist Roy Buchanan. In May 2016, Price won a Blues Music Award (Best Soul-Blues Album) for THIS TIME FOR REAL, his collaboration with Otis Clay, produced by Duke Robillard.
RECKONING, scheduled for a June 15, 2018 release through the Vizztone Label Group, finds Billy Price singing at the very top of his game. Tracks include songs by Price and co-writers Jim Britton of the Billy Price Band and French guitarist Fred Chapellier, along with songs previously recorded by such artists as Bobby Bland, Otis Redding, J.J. Cale, Swamp Dogg, and Johnny Rawls.
