Phil Gammage – “Arms of a Kind Woman”


With the track’s commanding and reverberating vocal presence, saloon-style keys, and swift harmonica use, “Arms of a Kind Woman” sets a memorable presence. The style, with its salvation-focused topic and spaghetti-western tinge, sounds like it would be right at home on the Kill Bill soundtrack. It makes sense, as there’s a cinematic feel here for sure, like there’s even more to the engrossing story presented. The track comes via New York blues/americana artist Phil Gammage, a two time veteran of the CBGB Music Festival. His new album Used Man for Sale follows his critically acclaimed 2014 album Adventures in Bluesland. His history of playing roots and blues-influenced music has resulted in a steady following for both his recordings and live shows, with “Arms of a Kind Woman” exemplifying his warmly engaging approach.
