    The Blaze Foley Documentary: Duct Tape Messiah,  with Gurf Morlix

    Anderson Fair presents The Blaze Foley Documentary: Duct Tape Messiah,  with Gurf Morlix (pictured).

    Gurf has been a major thread in the fabric of American roots music for over 20 years. He is a producer, guitarist and multi-instrumentalist, a singer-songwriter and artist in his own right. He has worked with such renowned artists as Lucinda Williams, Ray Wylie Hubbard, Slaid Cleaves, Buddy and Julie Miller, and Mary Gauthier.

    Through his professional music endeavors, Morlix has distinguished himself with his innate musicality, exquisite taste, keen creative instincts, and well-honed ear for not only songwriting but also the elements that bring songs to their fullest fruition. Prior to embarking on his own career, Morlix was likely best-known for his 11-year creative partnership with Lucinda Williams as her guitarist, band leader and backing vocalist as well as the producer of two of her classic, critically-acclaimed albums: her 1988 breakthrough Lucinda Williams and 1992's Sweet Old World.

    His work with Williams led him to produce multiple recordings for Hubbard (four albums), Cleaves (three albums and an EP with a fourth album soon to be released) and two albums each with Keen and Gauthier, as well as discs by Russell, McLagan, Butch Hancock, Hot Club of Cowtown, The Setters (Alejandro Escovedo, Michael Hall and Walter Salas-Humara) and others.

    Gurf was named Instrumentalist of The Year for 2009 at The Americana Music Awards, and his ever-expanding touring circuit has taken him across North America and to Europe and Japan. Morlix continues to produce and play with others, but finally adding his own voice to the chorus of great American music is a welcome, if not long overdue.

    About the Blaze Foley: Duct Tape Messiah-

    The documentary film, Blaze Foley: Duct Tape Messiah, has been 12 years in the making. Blaze, a colorful, but flawed character, was murdered in 1989 at the age of 39. A few years ago, Gurf wrote: "Blaze Foley - soulful, passionate singer songwriter. Champion of the downtrodden. Friend of the working Girl. Truth seeker. Atmospheric disturbance. Tender caring person with a big ol' bag of deep-rooted troubles stuffed down into one of his pockets. Blaze could cut right through the bullshit, or he could be the cause of it. The funniest person I ever met, and also the most tragic"
