healthy white baby (official sounding one)
Danny Black : lead vocals, guitar
Laurie Stirratt: vocals, bass
Ryan Juravic: drums
Lifted from a line in Raising Arizona, Healthy White Baby, consisting of Danny Black, front man and main songwriter for the Bloodshot artists The Blacks, Laurie Stirratt, bassist and singer for Blue Mountain & Ryan Juravic on drums, has been revived.
Black & Stirratt first met when The Blacks & Blue Mountain toured together & continued their strictly platonic friendship when Laurie fled Oxford, Mississippi for Chicago.
Originally drawn together by a mutual love of vintage R&B, blues & country as well as 60's and 70's psychedelic pop, they also found a common bond in both having been in bands fronted by couples whose fierey relationships both ignited, then destroyed their respective bands.
Prior to their collaboration, Black was working on a solo record that has been nearly completed for 3 years & Stirratt released an enchanting folkpop record, Arabella, with her brother John, released on Broadmoor Records.
