TODAY, November 13th, 2012 marks the release of Nashville-based Singer-songwriter Mike Cullison’s The Barstool Monologues, produced by Mark Robinson through JoeDog Records. Music News Nashville calls Cullison “… one of Nashville’s most respected tunesmiths.”

With The Barstool Monologues, Cullison weaves lives of bar patrons into songs, then threading them together with spoken-word narrative to create a vivid musical tableau. There’s the heartbroken lover, the fracturing couple, the other woman, the lonely imbiber … each introduced by a bartender named Hollis, who sees and hears it all. Various singers (including Jon Byrd, Davis Raines, and six others) inhabit their personas, spinning musical novellas into what Cullison likes to describe as “a honky-tonk Canterbury Tales.”

WHAT THE PRESS IS SAYING:

“Solid no-frills country and spirited barroom blues are the order of the day, with some expository narration and wry observations from the proprietor along the way.” —Jack Silverman, Nashville Scene

“If you head out to the barrooms tonight, keep in mind that everyone has their individual stories to tell. With that in mind, Cullison delivers a project that will have you thinking and maybe a little bit of drinking, as well! —Chuck Dauphin, Music News Nashville

“Using a unique format, Mike Cullison and his band of ‘regulars’ deliver an album full of classic honkytonk country slathered in rock, blues and even a bit of zydeco. While all the songs are co-written by Cullison, he’s got a group of over a dozen performers on The Barstool Monologues that really serves to infuse the album with a sociable, collaborative feeling.” —Brent Fleury, Bold Life
