Lance LopezTexas six string legend Lance Lopez is set to unleash his long-awaited new solo album, Tell The Truth, March 2nd 2018 on Mascot Label Group. Tell The Truth is an autobiographical tour-de-force through the life and times of an archetypal Texas blues legend with all the highs and lows that inevitably accompany this time honored path. Lance Lopez has been on a slow, steady climb up the mountain to the blues rock hall of heavyweights for the last decade, and this album declares his arrival.

Tell The Truth is the record on which Lance Lopez finally defines his solo sound – there’s loads of his famous hard-edged gritty guitars, lovingly parsed and layered throughout, but there’s also a powerful full band sound on every track with throbbing bass lines, sumptuous piano and organ, wicked blues harp, thunderous drums, and Lopez’s industrial strength vocals across the whole of this outstanding songset.

With one foot in the blues, and one foot in rock ’n’ roll, Lopez straddles the divide brilliantly. The soul that he brings to this recipe is the gravy on top, and it makes for a very tasty, satisfying meal. This album is electrifying. It rolls through like a thunderous majestic freight train of truth, pain, and hope.
