Tip the Artist
“Gonna Get In My Way” by The New Mastersounds musically started as a homage to The Allman Brothers Band with a southern funk guitar riff played on both electric guitar and acoustic slide guitar. The group enlisted vocalist Shelby Kemp of the Mississippi-based band Royal Horses to pen the lyrics. Kemp details that the track is written from the perspective of a working musician and notes that it’s an “inside looking out description of the struggles of finding and being one’s true self.” The southern roots of the song struck a chord with Lamar Williams Jr. son of the late Allman Brothers’ bassist Lamar Williams (1972-1976), who made it his own memorable anthem and laid it down in one take. The track is the lead single off of The New Mastersounds’ forthcoming album ‘The Deplar Effect,’ recorded at Floki Studios in Northern Iceland in collaboration with Color Red and Eleven Music Experiences.
