“Over Getting Over You” is the only non-instrumental track on the album, a meticulously written and arranged slice of ‘70s pop-R&B, that is graced by singer Candace Devine’s seismic performance. Gambill, who is best known as the lead guitarist for the multi-platinum Grammy® Award winning recording artist Lady Antebellum, describes “Over Getting Over You” as ‘a song about getting out of a relationship, only to realize you want back in.’ Gambill had already recorded a version of the song for Devine’s EP, Here We Are (which he produced), but for his album he decided to revisit the track. “I wanted to do more of a guitar thing with it,” he says, “kind of how Santana would do it. I stretched out the guitar intro, and then throughout the cut I made it more of a duet between me and Candace.”
The wide range of styles featured on the album are reflected by the diversity of the musicians working with Gambill; Kenneth Crouch (Mariah Carey, Lionel Richie) and Jeff Coffin ( Dave Matthews Band) Chris Nix, a frequent collaborator with Korn’s Jonathan Davis, and Isaac Hanson of the group Hanson. “This is probably the only record that will ever feature those two guys together,” Gambill proudly states.
Between Lady Antebellum tours, Gambill has been playing cuts from Fake Jazz & Theme Songs at jazz clubs across the country, and time permitting, he’s eyeing more dates following the release of the album. Depending on their availability, players in his band sometimes change, but for “95 percent” of his shows he performs with Latavius Mulzac on keys, Michael Majett on bass and Eljah “DD” Holt on drums.
“It would be awesome if I can tour more extensively in the next year, but I’m taking things as they come,” Gambill says. “I’m so proud of this album, and I’m really grateful that I had the chance to make it. It ties a lot of my influences into a really cool package, and it really shows off the fact that I’m a writer and composer first and foremost. Guitar is the voice I use to express myself.”
