Blues trio GA-20 have announced their third album Crackdown, due September 9th, 2022 via Karma Chief Records / Colemine Records. The “new-school Blues traditionalists” have also shared album single “Easy On The Eyes”. With the new album, the trio set out to “channel a throwback Blues sound with a facelift fit for modern day ears”. Additionally, GA-20 has announced an extensive run of tour dates through the rest of the year, including dates with The Monophonics, Kendra Morris and Tyler Bryant & The Shakedown.

Guitarist Matt Stubbs says about the new single:

The dominant guitar riff in ‘Easy On The Eyes’ was born during a drunken late night jam after a show in Atlanta. There may have been a lady at the show that night who inspired the sentiment; singing “Ohhh” was like, “Ohhh, man!” The feeling is heavy and raw, like a dark and sweaty joint after hours, where maybe you dive into bad decisions and the consequences come later. “I’ll keep you up all night ‘til dawn…”

With GA-20’s sophomore album, 2021’s Try It…You Might Like It! GA-20 Does Hound Dog Taylor, the band “resurrected and reinvented” the Blues music of the late six-fingered slide guitar Chicago Bluesman Hound Dog Taylor and it was nominated for a 2022 Blues Music Award.
