“Just Say the Word”, the debut album from native Pennsylvanian blues and americana artist, Gabe Stillman, is to be released on August 27, 2021, on the VizzTone Label Group. Stillman\’s new record is packed with thirteen thoughtfully crafted originals plus two covers and further solidifies his reputation as an accomplished guitarist (winner of the 2019 Gibson Guitar Award at the International Blues Challenge), and now as a meaningful songwriter. Produced by Anson Funderburgh at Wire Recording in Austin, Texas, “Just Say the Word” is a compelling listen from beginning to end, with powerful contributions from the Texas Horns and special appearances by Funderburgh, Sue Foley, and Greg Izor. The lyrics and arrangements are interesting, diverse, and heart throbbing with messages that are both personal and universal. “Just Say the Word” appeals to the vast following in the blues world while stretching the boundaries into that realm of “just great music” that defies category.
