"Heaven, Hell or Oklahoma"

The bands bio description: "Deep in the heart of Cherokee Country, in the foothills of the Ozark Mountains, the small town of Tahlequah, Oklahoma is giving rise to a dynamic and eclectic cure for the common country music rut. Led by Dr. John Fell (a general practitioner by day and manically expressive singer-songwriter and acoustic guitarist by night). DocFell&Co has been kickin’ the dust up around these parts since the early 2010s, channeling the masters (Woody Guthrie, Hank Williams, Johnny Cash) to create a fusion of traditional country, hillbilly, bluegrass, Americana, red dirt, folk and gospel funk."

“The concept behind the album became songs inspired by the afterlife. I had written 'Mean Marie' and 'Peace Maker' during funerals. Going through my catalog I found other songs that had similar themes,” Said John Fell. “ 'End of the Line' seems obvious, 'Molly Field Cemetery' is about a cemetery, “Slim Says' referencing the death of radio and so on. The title 'Heaven, Hell or Oklahoma' evolved embracing this idea but also left open the ability to slide in our track 'A Different Drum' which is more about our home state.” - Tonya Little



Dust Bowl Americana storytellers Doc Fell & Co. have confirmed a handful of summer and fall tour/festival dates including stops in Tulsa, OK, and a special home town appearance at Medicine Stone in Tahlequah, OK. The band is touring in support of their third studio album, ‘Heaven, Hell or OklahomaSteeped in elements of traditional country, gospel funk and folk-rock, this release is a turning point in the band’s catalog - a master class in songwriting that confronts death and the afterlife bookended with rawhide-tough guitar licks, the lush ambience of pedal steel and frontman John Fell’s gritty vocals.

Recorded at the illustrious yellow DOG Studios in Wimberley, Texas, ‘Heaven, Hell or Oklahoma’ was produced/engineered/mixed by David Percefull and mastered by Adam Odor and features eleven original tracks (all written by Fell).  “The end of the line” provides the backdrop for the album as Fell’s evocative lyrics are told through the prism of his home state of Oklahoma.
