Chris Bergson – All I Got Left
Format: CD – Digital
Label: Continental Record Services
Release: 2021

‘All I Got Left’, the new solo album from internationally acclaimed guitarist, singer and songwriter Chris Bergson, is an intimate, stripped-down affair. Bergson’s “glorious guitar” (Blues Magazine) provides the only accompaniment for his “deeply soulful vocals.” (Blues in Britain.)

Hailed as “the New York street poet with a blues soul” (MOJO) and “one of the most inventive songwriters in modern blues music” (All Music Guide), Bergson offers a collection of songs that speak to the shared experience of the past year through the universal lens of the blues.

Born during lock down in New York City in 2020, the album includes original material – both new and reimagined – inspired by lived-in scenes of the pandemic, along with new interpretations of songs by Richard Julian (Norah Jones, Little Willies), Glenn Patscha (Ollabelle, Rosanne Cash), Chuck Berry and Bob Dylan. Recorded live over two days in March 2021, All I Got Left was co-produced, recorded, and mixed by Hugh Pool at his studio Excello Recording in Brooklyn.
