Domestic Blues is Bap's first solo album. It was recorded in Nashville, TN and produced by the "Twang Trust"  of Steve Earle & Ray Kennedy.
Earle was later to describe Bap as “the best songwriter I ever saw,” and the album featured several of Nashville’s most highly regarded musicians, including Jerry Douglas, Peter Rowan and Nanci Griffith. 
Domestic Blues was a real success, getting into the top ten of the Billboard Americana chart. Kennedy’s song Vampire appeared in the soundtrack for Hollywood film You Can Count On Me - which won two awards at the prestigious Sundance film festival  and received two Oscar nominations - and 3 songs from the album were used for cult classic Southie. More touring of the U.S.A. cemented the acclaim.
