Acclaimed indie-soul songwriter Son Little makes a guest appearance on "Fall Right In," the final single release of the forthcoming Floki Sessions: Boots in Place' album available on July 7, 2023, via Floki Studios. The all-star collaborative album features George Porter Jr. (The Meters), Eddie Roberts (The New Mastersounds), Robert Walter (Greyboy Allstars & Roger Waters), and Nikki Glaspie (The Nth Power) in a potent collective effort recorded at Floki Studios in the Fljót Valley on the mountainous Troll Peninsula in northern Iceland at Eleven Experience's Deplar Farm during the winter of 2021.
"Fall Right In" sees a merger between the studied funk prowess of the core quartet and Son Little’s smooth, bluesy vocal stylings over a quirky arrangement with lyrics detailing the underbelly of New Orleans. While performing a headlining show at The Bluebird Theater in Denver, CO in November 2022, Son Little connected with Eddie Roberts who recruited him to guest on the track and come into Color Red Studios to work on the arrangement. The final outcome presents the perfect follow-up to Son Little's recent Like Neptune album and a guest appearance on the Eric Krasno & Otis McDonald project King Canyon amidst a busy touring schedule that includes upcoming appearances at The Kennedy Center, The Peach Music Festival, North Sea Jazz Festival, and more.
This inaugural edition of the Floki Sessions comes hot off the heels of The New Mastersounds’ The Deplar Effect which garnered acclaim earning the #1 spot on the Relix Radio Charts, reached the #24 spot on NACC’s 2022 R&B/Soul Charts, and editorial playlist support on Spotify & Apple Music. In addition to Roberts’ successes with The Deplar Effect and a recent run in Japan with The New Mastersounds, Walter has been the touring keyboardist with Roger Waters (Pink Floyd) and Glaspie has maintained an active schedule touring with Trouble No More, an all-star tribute to The Allman Brothers.
The full-length album produced by Roberts will also feature guest artist appearances by Erica Falls (formerly Galactic), Lamar Williams. Jr. (Trouble No More, The New Mastersounds & North Mississippi All-Stars), Tierinii Jackson (Southern Avenue), Eric “Benny” Bloom (Lettuce), and rising Chicago artist GreenTTea.
