Rocker/rock writer Ted Drozdowski will bring his band Ted Drozdowski’s Scissormen to NYC for a pair of album release shows for slide guitar-driven ‘Love & Life.’ Splitting his time between journalist and musician, Drozdowski has done over 1,000 artist interviews and driven over 1,000,000 miles on tour in a series of bands culminating in Ted Drozdowski’s Scissormen, which brings together his loves of psychedelic music and blues. Early spotlights have come from Wax Poetics, Diffuser.FM, Premier Guitar, and beyond. The “Beggin’ Jesus” music video brings to life the dirty groove with lo-fi animation.
Drozdowski knows how to tell a story in song as well, portraying his
immigrant grandfathers suffering from mining-related illnesses in “Black
Lung Fever,” sketching a portrait of armed forces veteran, former truck
driver, blues music player, and MENSA member Watermelon Slim on
“Watermelon Kid,” and recounting a true hang with his mentor RL Burnside
that also tells of the complexities and contradictions of race
relations in America. ‘Love & Life’ is his masterwork.
