“The Salted Caramel Sinner” is the third release of Sam Russell's Blue Moon Bible project, an ongoing series of 8 albums with 8 songs apiece inspired by" The Odyssey" and James Joyce's "Ulysses." With styles ranging all over the Americana map from rock n’ roll, soul, country and gospel to doo-wop, punk and funk, he albums together tell one big story of love stumbled upon then lost and found over and over again, with different characters “portrayed” by Sam and his fellow Harborrat singers.
"The Salted Caramel Sinner" features epic arrangements and grand orchestrations to match the wide range of emotion and subject on display by Sam and company.
