Check out the lyrical video for ‘A Different Drum’ by DocFell & Co.
Dust Bowl Americana storytellers Doc Fell & Co. are set to release their third studio album, ‘Heaven, Hell or Oklahoma’ on May 4. Steeped in elements of traditional country, gospel funk and folk-rock, this release is a turning point in the band’s catalog – a master class in songwriting that confronts death and the afterlife bookended with rawhide-tough guitar licks, the lush ambience of pedal steel and frontman John Fell’s gritty vocals.
Recorded at the illustrious yellow DOG Studios in Wimberley, Texas, ‘Heaven, Hell or Oklahoma’ was produced/engineered/mixed by David Percefull and mastered by Adam Odor and features eleven original tracks (all written by Fell). “The end of the line” provides the backdrop for the album as Fell’s evocative lyrics are told through the prism of his home state of Oklahoma.
“Heaven, Hell or Oklahoma is a journey down a dead end street,” explains Fell. “The concept behind the album became songs inspired by the afterlife. I had written two of the album’s tracks during funerals. Going through my catalog, I found other songs that had similar themes. The title evolved from embracing this idea but also left open the ability to slide in our track “A Different Drum” which is more about our home state.”
