Empty Promises (Featured APD Showcase Track)
Songwriter: Michael Burks
Publishing: Eyeball Music, BMI

"Of all the songs that the late Michael “Iron Man” Burks recorded, Empty Promises was his favorite. He sang and played it at every show, always with immense passion and intensity. It was obvious that Michael had lived the story.

He cut it live in the studio, with no overdubs or fixes, just singing and playing his heart out. Michael died suddenly at age 57, having established himself over the course of four Alligator albums and hundreds of live gigs as one of the blues giants of his generation". ~ Bruce Iglauer, President & Founder of Alligator Records & Michael Burks’ Co-producer and Friend
