‘GRAND CHENIER NATIVE REALEASES FIRST CD’ Grand Chenier native Blayne Mayard proves he’s not just passing through the music scene with the release of his debut CD. The singer/songwriter/guitarist says he has been writing for more than 20 years producing hundreds of songs, both words and tunes. He selected 15 of his favorites for ‘Just Passing Thru’ (CBMayard Record Co. in Scott, La.), a compilation that’s primarily country with some blues and cajun-zydeco included in the mix. The album offers some Texas swinging sounds (‘Way Back When’, ‘Ain’t No Bandaid (Gonna Fix This Problem’), country with a 50’s rock’n’roll beat (‘Loving Mood’), island sounds a la Jimmy Buffett (‘Domino Effect’) and the Merle Haggard-esque (‘Something ‘Bout). He turns pure blues with ‘I’m So Confused’ and get down with ‘Kickin Cajun Weekend’ and ‘I Got The Zydeco in My Head and I Can’t Get It Out’. And he has some swing-style fun with ‘Sure Do Wish I Woulda Paid More Attention In School’. The last track, ‘Drinking My Last Sweet Memory’, is in memory of Jimmy Barton who died recently. His voice creating bar talk, along with Mike Pousson and brother Clegg Barton, can be heard at the end of the song. The CD, a total Louisiana project, was recorded and mixed at Max-Trax Studios of Crowley, La. and mastered by grammy winner Tony Daigle of Electric-Comeauxland Studios in Lafayette, La. Musicians playing on the album include music veterans Dirk Powell, Tony Ardoin, Lane Labee, Beau Benoit, Richard Comeaux,Mark Hebert, Mike Burch and Tony Bruce. Mayard, who lives and works in the Lafayette area, drew close to home for the album cover. Photographs were taken in Edgerly along the railroad tracks near US 90 by longtime friends Terry and Lyndon Miller of Sulphur, La.
