The Archibalds Release "Rolling Sea (Jonah) / Sloop John B"

Looking for a seaworthy vessel for life's turbid waters? Have mercy on yourself! Let The Archibalds into your heart.

The Archibalds' virtuoso songwriter and arranger Joey Thompson goes maritime with this first in a series of releases leading up to a full-length record in 2022.

With "Rolling Sea (Jonah) / Sloop John B," The Archibalds invoke the ascendant powers of legendary Bahamian guitarist and singer Joseph Spence, as well as mystical raw blues dream weaver Ramsay Midwood.

"Rolling Sea (Jonah)" features elements of Spence's "Out on the Rolling Sea," as well as elements of Midwood's "Jonah."

"Sloop John B" was originally commissioned for the feature film "Blue Balloons" directed by Emily Troedson.

Special thanks to Jennifer Thompson, Joseph Thompson, Emily Troedson, Ramsay Midwood, Drew Carroll and Jimmy Wildcat.
