This is awesome. I remember going to see New World Spirits all the time in the 90s. They were awesome and I loved the lyrics in their songs. Awesome that J. Chambers and Danny Drabb are writing and recording again.
As members of the band New World Spirits, J. Chambers and Danny Drabb achieved a heady level of local success, routinely selling out Landing venues with their blend of tuneful pop-rock, while remaining a headlining act in their collegiate birthplace of Springfield, MO. In 1996, the band seemed primed for another level of success, with the release of “Fortune Cookie” on Universal Records. But that would be their only major label offering and, in time, the group ceased operations. While a couple of reunion shows at the top of this decade suggested the potential for new music, it’s the band’s guitar combo of Chambers and Drabb who are now in the process of debuting a new project, Blackout Angels.
