Most of us mere mortals are fortunate to have one good gift getting us through life that hopefully results in happiness, financial security and makes this world a better place. But when you are the head surgeon at a hospital with patients putting their lives in your hands you would think it would be enough.
When Dr. Jack Myers lays down his scalpel, he sometimes unleashes a lot of frustration, hopes and dreams by being a very good composer, guitarist and vocalist.
His Tahlequah-based band Vox Squadron has released its second album, Oklahoma Skies. It is a follow up to their initial album, Crashing Down released four years ago. (See CD review, Blues News September/October 2015). There have been very few records I’ve listened to and enjoyed as much as Oklahoma Skies and Crashing Down. That’s how much I love this band.
Oklahoma Skies continues the journey launched from the first album, but the new one also ventures more into a blues zone, while the boys continue an uncharted journey as real rockers.
