Oklahoma's Docfell & Co Releases New Album "Dust Bowl Heart" On March 31, 2017

New York, NY (Top40 Charts) On any given Wednesday, in a Tahlequah back alley that smells of fryer steam and hash browns, you can walk up a rickety flight of stairs and find yourself amongst the padded walls sound boards of the studio belonging Doctor John Eddie, or DocFell as he's known to most.

Fell has spent months watching his own stories bounce between the corners of this building, evolving from words into melodies and from sound bites into millions of moments tossed into veteran producer Aaron Pack's infamous audio cauldron, otherwise known as Monotone Studios. Tahlequah has adopted DocFell & Co as some of its favourite sons; their first album titled Scissor Tail rang between the walls and halls of nearly every pub and restaurant from North End Tahlequah to downtown Tulsa. It has been praised by all sides of the country, folk, red dirt, and even the gospel-funk corners of the Oklahoma music scene.

Now Fell and friends have stepped back into Monotone Studios to record their sophomore album titled Dust Bowl Heart and they've brought back a slew of all-stars (and even a few wind instruments) to help bring their compositions to life. DocFell's classic country and strict Baptist influences lay a vintage-esque framework to this new body of work. Each song has a story, and as each song unfolds the stories begin to coral together to build the spine of this journey: a tale of heart break, delinquency, empathy, and hope.

This is a composition delicately sown together by endowed musicians, veteran producers, guest vocals, and raw prose. The music reads like the perfect pairing of complimentary opposites - an instrumental equivalent to Robin Hood and Little John. It's the musical monologue of a daydreaming farm boy holding his hymnal, while humming through Hank Williams' greatest hits. When asked what else may have influenced the album, Fell talked about being captivated by books about the lives of legendary artists like Woody Guthrie, Hank Williams, and Johnny Cash. "I wanted to channel their spirits," he said.

"Dust Bowl Heart seems to have the earmarks of a composition touched by something magical, and Fell has unveiled a new voice of clashing musical genres and collaborative ventures. Dust Bowl Heart will be available online at your favorite digital retailers as well as, and wherever finer music is sold." -Carden Crow

"Dust Bowl Heart, an amazing and creative journey through classic country songs in the vein of Jennings and Haggard." - David Percefull, Yellow Dog Studios
