"We Won't Go To Heaven". Self released, in conjunction with Scumbag Records, in 2016, "We Won't Go To Heaven" is the 2nd full length album from Indianapolis' preeminent one man band Bluesman, ToeKnee Tea. Initially turning heads in the Roots scene via his killer one man band live performances and a digitally released EP, "Dissapointing Noises", which he dropped through his Bandcamp page in 2012. The following year, 2013, saw TOEKNEE TEA self release his first full length album, "Elkhart County Jail", which was a phenomenal record and showed Toeknee making good, and thensome, on all the promise he showed on his debut. Since this time, he's continued delivering killer performances throughout the Midwest and has had his following continue to grow accordingly. Now, fast forward 3 years and now TOEKNEE TEA has released his sophomore album, "We Won't Go To Heaven" and let me tell you, it's amazingly good. Overall it has a bit of a different tone or mood than DN or ECJ, as well as it has a different sound, production wise, that fits well with the aesthetic of the new record. It features 10 songs, 9 originals and a cover of LEADBELLY's "Ain't It A Shame". Of the originals, all but one are brand new and exclusive to this album. "Drunk Tank" is a newly recorded version of the original which appeared on "Dissapointing Noises". This album is a bit more stripped down and raw. It's a slightly more somber, quiet, haunted sound at times. Throughout it has an old Blues album quality to it that reminds you of old SON HOUSE, ROBERT JOHNSON, and LEADBELLY records. It's not as rowdy as some of TT' s early work was, but it has a mature confidence to it that only comes from time, playing lots of shows, and writing more and more. That's another point to be made, TT continues to grow and develop to greater heights as both a musician and a songwriter. At this point, TOEKNEE TEA is among the very best artists in the Midwest , in any genre, let alone the Blues and Roots scene, and if he can continue writing records this good, he should be seen in the same company as SCOTT H. BIRAM.
