J.P. Soars – Let Go Of The Reins
Format: CD
Label: Whiskey Bayou Records 
Releasedatum: 23 augustus 2019

J.P. Soars’ ‘Let Go Of The Reins’was recorded during a whirlwind weeklong session at Tab Benoit’s Whiskey Bayou studios in Houma Louisiana, with a band featuring Red Hots drummer Chris Peet on bass, and Benoit on drums.
Together they recorded eleven songs in five days – seven originals which they wrote on the spot, plus four choice covers. The inspiration for the album came from the many nights they all spent jamming into the wee hours on the Legendary Rhythm and Blues Cruise and at the Big Blues Bender, and as expected, they captured many magical musical moments on this record.
In the decade since Soars burst upon the national scene by winning 1st place in the Blues Foundation’s 2009 International Blues Challenge in Memphis, TN with his band the Red Hots (and was also crowned with the prestigious Albert King Award as best guitarist,) Arkansas native J.P. Soars has toured extensively through the United States, Canada, South America and Europe, and released an impressive catalog of powerful music.
In addition to his work with his own Red Hots, Soars has been part of the regional allstar blues act Southern Hospitality, also featuring Tampa vocalist/guitarist Damon Fowler and Memphis vocalist/keyboardist Victor Wainwright, plus Red Hots drummer Chris Peet and Wainwright’s bassist Terrance Grayson. In 2019 Soars was nominated for the Blues Foundation’s Blues Music Award in the Blues Rock category, alongside blues heavyweights Billy F. Gibbons, Eric Gales, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, and Tinsley Ellis.
