Lord High Admirals are a fairly fresh group to the Atlanta scene, anchored by guitarist/vocalist Paul Schwartz of Big Fish Ensemble, a band most active during the 1990s. His new ensemble includes Atlanta music veteran Rob Gal (The Coolies, 6X) on guitar, Cayce Buttrey (Dern) on drums and Joanna Steed on bass guitar.
The group’s self-titled debut CD, with 13 songs ranging in mood from silly to poignant, features Schwartz’s former BFE bandmate Sheila Doyle guesting on violin and Deborah Hudson on backing vocals for one song apiece. A coinciding release show will be held at Avondale Towne Cinema in Avondale Estates on Friday, April 20th. Athens’ Five-Eight will also play.
