Bad Touch: Shake A Leg Review

Hearing the single “Lift Your Head Up” might be all you need to take a chance on this, the third album by UK  blues rockers Bad Touch. It’s a great song and really gets a party started that never ends. I’ve listened to this album multiple times now and I can guarantee you it’s solid […]

Doyle Bramhall II: Shades Review

For a musician like Doyle Bramhall II, the music criticism community approaches a new album release with an understanding that, more likely than not, it’s going to be good. As someone who grew up around the Vaughan brothers in Texas (his father drummed for The Chessmen with Jimmie Vaughan while still in high school and […]

Greta Van Fleet: Anthem of the Peaceful Army Review

Greta Van Fleet’s debut full-length album, Anthem of the Peaceful Army will be released on October 19, 2018. It was recorded in Nashville, Tennessee and mixed in Royal Oak, Michigan, by the same production team that recorded the two previous EPs, “The Rust Brothers,” Marlon Young, Al Sutton and Herschel Boone.

Sari Schorr: Never Say Never Review

You can say a band is ear-catching, but it’s hard to prove scientifically. So when I say Sari Schorr’s second album, Never Say Never, is positively engrossing, it’s understandable if you’re skeptical.

John Oates: Arkansas Review

John Oates is best known for being half of the beloved ’80s band Hall and Oates. Hall and Oates represent the epitome of pop. They’ve sold millions upon millions of records. They had six number one hits. Michael Jackson copped to “borrowing” a riff from their “I Can’t Go for That (No Can Do)” for […]

Joe Bonamassa: Redemption Review

Joe Bonamassa is known as a blues guitar hero, but the pleasant surprises of Redemption, his latest album, are his songwriting and vocals. Bonamassa is prolific. Redemption is 13th solo studio album. That’s not counting the live albums or his work with his Black Country Communion side project, nor his work with singer Beth Hart. […]

Ben Poole: Anytime You Need Me Review

Over the the past eight years I’ve watched Been Poole and have seen his career progress, slowly, to where he is now. This is his third album and the fact he remains loyal to the musicians surrounding him is very much to his credit. The go-to producer for many young Brit Blues/Rockers has to be […]
