U R My Everything was just released early in 2013 and has already garnered its share of acclaim. The album was ranked for several consecutive weeks on the weekly charts of B.B. King’s Bluesville on SiriusXM radio. It has also drawn reviews from both online and print media outlets.
His writing and arranging are a rich roux of the region, informed by Mississippi blues, swamp rock, Zydeco, Caribbean breakdowns and languide island sways. On his second recording, U R My Everything, McCaa reaches deep into his bag of humor and talent to produce eleven bona fide original tunes, each with an independent identity while never forgetting where they came from.
From Brett Milano of New Orleans’ Offbeat magazine:
Lots of people write about falling in love with New Orleans for clichéd reasons like second lines and gumbo. But when a song called “Move to New Orleans” includes the lines “I wanna dance all night at the Spotted Cat / Or wherever Meschiya’s at,” you can assume the writer really knows the territory.
From Nick DeRiso of Something Else! Reviews:
As Professor Porkchop’s album rocks and sways, there is much to be said about the music. U R My Everything weaves in every thread in the crazy-quilt tapestry of sounds associated with Louisiana — from slinky R&B to boisterous street jazz to grease-popping blues.
Professor Porkchop and the (formerly Dirty) Dishes released their first album Grits and Graveyards in 2008. It’s like a musical journey to New Orleans!
