Did You Hear? St. Roch Blues

New music! Sometimes old music. Music that we love!

I came across this song recently, and only learned after the fact it was written about a neighborhood of the same name in New Orleans. While the studio version has a bit more bite and classic blues feel, I love the raw acoustic sound of this recording, with the awesome harmonies in that great space.

From Alynda Lee Segarra, one of the songwriters: “Sam Doores and I wrote this song in honor of a neighborhood called “St. Roch” back in New Orleans, and for some friends who left this world too soon. But we also like to think of it as a prayer: for the city of New Orleans…”

  1. Very simple clear beats, which allows you to appreciate the lyrics. Thought provoking too.
