Rocks Off: First, let us say that we love that you're working with someone named "Stormy Cooper" for your album. That name is phenomenal. He sounds like the villain on a sitcom from that Nick Jr. channel.Season Ammons: Yes indeed! Although Stormy's more of a superhero than he is a villian. And really, he's just as cool as his name is. I wanted to work with Stormy because he understood my desire to co-produce the project and he could see creatively where I wanted to go. Plus, we both have unique names so I felt like we shared a connection. RO: Speaking of names, were you aware that yours is only four letters away from being "Seasoned Almonds"? We don't know much about much, but we know that seasoned almonds are almost always delicious. Might we suggest you name your first LP that? SA: What? Always Delicious? Well that'll certainly get some attention. I can see it now: Season: Always Delicious. Being the crazy nut that I am, I'll take it into consideration. By the way, I'm an amazing gourmet chef and I make a mean almond-crusted tilapia with chipotle raspberry remoulade, served up with roasted garlic sweet potatoes. I hope to approach the Food Network with my idea for a show called The Singing Chef. I'd cook, sing songs and have special guest appearances from other artists. RO: Cool. Tell us about the upcoming EP. We assume you have a song with Slim Thug on there. That guy is always solid for a guest feature. SA: Unfortunately, Slim's agent wouldn't return my phone calls, so I never got him in the studio like I had hoped. But lucky for me, I did manage to get some great players for the project, including Josh Owen, Allen Huff, Lyndon Hughs, Matt Baker, Jeremy Bankhead... oh, and Roger Creager's bass player, Mr. Stormy Cooper himself. This EP will be soulful and groovy at times. Gritty and sensual too. There's even a bit of humor. I wanted to capture as many emotions as possible for the project in hopes of connecting with my audience. RO: You have the following three-song set on your MySpace page: "Bottom of the Bottle," "Whiskey Wings" and "Jim Beam and Nicotine," as well as a live version of "Tequila Kisses." Should we go ahead and schedule a stint for you at Bay Area Rehab or do you want to? SA: Actually, I've already been there, done that, and got the tehab T-shirt to prove it. I've been sober almost a year and a half now, and although I don't drink anymore, I still love to sing about it. And since I've already been down at the bottom of the bottle, there's nowhere else to go but up. RO: "For Tonight" is a very saucy song. How does Mr. Ammons feel about that? He thinks it's about him, doesn't he? Poor fellow. SA: Well that's the great thing about being a songwriter. I can live vicariously through my songs and be anybody I want to. I write true stories. Whether they're about me or somebody else is up to the listener to decide. Season's EP will be released in late April or early May. Find out for certain at www.seasonammons.com.
