Beth Hart and Joe Bonamassa: Black Coffee Review

Beth Hart & Joe Bonamassa fans need wait only a little while longer for their third studio album Black Coffee. For those who have followed the grammy nominated duo for Don’t Explain and Seesaw, Black Coffee’s highly anticipated January 26th release date will seem much farther away than a number of days.

Joe Satriani: What Happens Next Review

Every time that I hear a new album by Joe Satriani I’m reminded of why I love the sounds of an electric guitar so much and What Happens Next is no exception. The new release hits the streets on January 12, 2018, the day after he begins his G3 tour in Seattle, Washington. The new […]

Victor Bacalhau: Cosmic Attraction Review

Vitor Bacalhau is back with his second album Cosmic Attraction. This is an album that immediately defines itself as unquestionably rock with light blues influences. Though it has a natural, human grit, it is shockingly refined, especially for an album that was recorded almost entirely live.

Dan Patlansky: Perfection Kills Review

Back in 2016 Dan Patlansky became the first artist in history to be voted Blues Rock Review’s #1 album of the year twice with the release of IntroVertigo.

Both members of the sibling duo from Fort Plain, New York contain elements of high energy and rough, raw, grit in their toolboxes, as well as tender and soulful qualities. Together they use all of these aspects of […]

Casey James: Strip It Down Review

Casey James is back with Strip It Down, an appropriately titled album given the raw and rooted songs it contains. Strip It Down is a danceable album that is truly blues at its core. This album is the perfect soundtrack for any party or car ride, alone or with a group.

Gwyn Ashton: Solo Elektro Review

The first time I listened to Gwyn Ashton’s Solo Elektro, I did so blind and without any prior knowledge. I found myself wondering why his drummer only used a bass drum. Then I realized Gwyn Ashton’s drummer was the same as his guitarist, as his vocalist.  This is a forgivable mistake because the wall of […]

Popa Chubby: Two Dogs Review

It says in the PR material that Popa Chubby, aka New Yorker Ted Horowitz, describes his performance style as “the Stooges meets Buddy Guy, Motorhead meets Muddy Waters, and Jimi Hendrix meets Robert Johnson”. Well, perhaps not. But I don’t say that to put him down. I just think he’s a less manic kind of […]
