Inner Limits CD Release Party
January 11 • 8:00 am - 11:00 pm• $7.00
Inner Limits is releasing their debut blues album Hit The Highway: In September of 1981, at 9 years old, Olem soaked up the 12 bar blues from his mentor James Thornbury. Three years later, James was swept away by the legendary blues band Canned Heat. Before he hit the road, he scratched out the lyrics to a song called Hit the Highway and said “here is one last tune to remember me by, maybe you’ll record it one day.”
James passed away in 2017. Upon hearing the news, Olem traveled back in time to his basement and revisited the charts James had handwritten on the backs of posters being housed in a dusty box. Over the following months, Inner Limits began to rehearse these songs and bring new life and meaning to them. With people beginning to notice these new songs at shows, we thought it would be a good time to record a blues album. So we did. This one’s for you, James.
