No Sinner: Old Habits Die Hard Review

Old Habits Die Hard

When bombshell singer songwriter Colleen Renison looks in the mirror she sees No Sinner. That’s not a testament to her character, literally the band gets it’s name from Rennison spelled backwards. After a critically acclaimed EP titled Boo Hoo Hoo, No Sinner is back with another full length album, Old Habits Die Hard, and they don’t just die hard, they hit hard, too.

Albert Castiglia: Big Dog Review

Rival Sons: Hollow Bones Review

Hollow Bones

What better way to celebrate the start of summer than with a new Rival Sons record? On June 10, the Long Beach four-piece released Hollow Bones, their fifth full-length album and fourth with Earache Records. We last heard Rival Sons two years ago on Great Western Valkyrie, an album that earned the #8 slot on Blues Rock Review’s Top 20 Albums of 2014 list and was nominated for a 2014 Album of the Year award by Classic Rock Magazine. Great Western Valkyrie seemed to represent a shift for the band: musically, they hit the mark as fervently as they did on Pressure and Time, the 2011 album that set them apart as a band to watch.

Eric Clapton: I Still Do Review

I Still Do

With a career of more than half a century, legendary guitarist and three-time inductee of the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, Eric Clapton gifts us with I Still Do. The 12 track album features wounded stories, a guitar bursting with life, an incognito in the vocals of one of the songs and a clear explanation to why he’s been listed as one of the most influential blues musicians of all time.

Tinsley Ellis Interview

Tinsley Ellis

When you think of bluemen, Tinsley Ellis immediately comes to mind. He’s as prolific as they come in the genre. Ellis has been performing for over 40 years and is in the midst of touring his brand new album, Red Clay Soul. Blues Rock Review caught up with Ellis to discuss the new album and more.

The Temperance Movement: White Bear Review

White Bear

White Bear is the highly anticipated follow up to 2014’s The Temperance Movement. There has been a bit of a buzz about this record being a departure from their debut. The best way to describe it is that White Bear is a little more Faces-Stones-Black Crowes, and slightly less Zeppelin-Free than their debut. The real difference is simply a natural growth that we come to expect from truly great bands and The Temperance Movement delivers in spades.

No Sinner: Colleen Rennison Interview

No Sinner

Want to meet one of rock music’s most dynamic and gifted vocalists? Say hello to Colleen Rennison, whose leather lunged and spine-tinglingly soulful singing is the calling card of Vancouver-based outfit No Sinner. Since her emergence on the band’s debut Boo Hoo Hoo in 2013, Rennison’s voice has been compared to that of Etta James and, inevitably, Janis Joplin, though Robert Plant is no less a role model for the 28-year-old Canadian. In 2014, her solo project See The Sky About To Rain, a collection of covers by Robbie Robertson, Leonard Cohen, Townes Van Zandt and others, showed off the singer’s homespun, rootsy side. Whether it’s blistering blues rock or a soulful ballad, Rennison’s background as an actress – she trained at New York’s famed Circle in the Square and has appeared in Hollywood features alongside Bruce Willis and Michelle Pfeiffer – allows her to inhabit a song like few singers on today’s scene.
