Mud Bay Offer You Their Love And Forgiveness

The Vancouver blues-rockers offer a slice of Van Morrison soul on their new single.

Mud Bay share some Love And Forgiveness on their latest single — showcasing today on Tinnitist.

The second single from the eclectic Vancouver rock ’n’ rollers’ latest album Best Laid Plans, Love And Forgiveness has a jazzy blues swing that wouldn’t be out of place on a Van Morrison album. With Randall T. Carpenter taking lead, Love And Forgiveness urges you to follow the golden rule in love as well as life:

“Before you point your finger, take a moment to recall
Who tried to lift you up, let you down, watched you fall
Love and forgiveness, true ties that bind
Are so very hard to find, seem to be in short supply.”

Love And Forgiveness is just one of 14 original tracks off their latest album Best Laid Plans, which was recorded at Afterlife Studios in Vancouver and produced by the band themselves with the help of Erik Nielsen.

Born in 1978, Mud Bay have been entertaining audiences for decades with their fusion of blues, roots, soul jazz and just about anything else. Hailing as “Saturday night entertainment, any day of the week,” the talented quintet features three main vocalists along with four songwriters, which allows for a plethora of musical range, diversity, and creativity.

The band consists of Mud Bay Slim (Harold Arnold) on harmonica and vocals, Mark Branscombe on guitar and vocals, Carpenter playing guitar, steel, and vocals, Dennis Ingvaldson pumping the bass,and Murphy Farrell handling drums and percussion. Jerry Cook and Norm Quinn contribute horns on Love And Forgiveness, while Pete Sweetzir adds Hammond organ.
