Jonathan Peyper: Jonathan Peyper Review

Jonathan Peyper

New on the scene, Jonathan Peyper quietly dropped his self-titled debut two months ago. The unceremonious release and small scale of his touring means that his album has sort of slipped under the radar outside of his home in South Africa, which is a little upsetting given Peyper’s flavour. With some of the album’s songs titled “Mysterious Woman,” “Love at Midnight,” and “Where is My Eve?” it’s no surprise that Jonathan Peyper’s approach to the blues is a sensuous one. Peyper’s self-titled debut is full of explorative guitar work framed by light melodies, gushing hooks, and nostalgic chord turns. It’s not that everything on this record is slow and winding; Peyper bursts with energy frequently too. These moments often seem outshined by the gentler ones, however.

Ty Curtis: Water Under The Bridge Review

Water Under The Bridge

’70s-style rock blended with a hint of southern twang is the music ambiance of Ty Curtis’ Water Under The Bridge. This album weighs heavy with futuristic takes on the genre of blues rock. The emphatic screaming lead guitars carry Curtis’ vocals through every arrangement, with musical grace and elegance. The subtle hints of southern rock twang bring vibrance to every song, which showcases Curtis’ authentic sense of musicianship.

Danny Bryant: Temperature Rising Review

Temperature Rising

If you thought that technical guitar solos were a trend left behind in the ’70s, listen to Danny Bryant’s Temperature Rising and you’ll see that, not only are they not left behind, but they are better left to be crafted by musicians equipped with skills worthy of pulling them off. Bryant showcases all of his talented capabilities right from the very start of this record. The first song hits you right in the chest with power chords, heavy bass lines and dusty, echoing vocals. Unlike many blues based rock musicians, Bryant digs deep into his talents and takes risks outside of the commonalities of the genre.
