Jonathon Long: Jonathon Long Review

You might be tempted to think that this self-titled album from Louisiana’s Jonathon Long is his debut. But you’d be wrong, because he’s recorded a few LPs already, under the moniker Jonathon ‘Boogie’ Long. This album represents something of a reinvention then, as Long joins the same management team as Samantha Fish, who has produced […]

Sean Chambers: Welcome to My Blues Review

I’m a huge Stevie Ray Vaughan fan, and as such, I’m sensitive to any artist I feel is borrowing too heavily from his work. But when I say Sean Chambers’ latest, Welcome to My Blues is Vaughan-influnced, I mean it as a compliment. Chambers’ seventh album features funky rhythms, incendiary blues runs, and just the […]

Anthony Gomes: Peace, Love, and Loud Guitars Review

Blues rocker Anthony Gomes returns with Peace, Love, and Loud Guitars. In an interview with Blues Rock Review last year, Gomes told us he believed this would be his best album yet from the songs to the production, he wasn’t lying. Peace, Love, and Loud Guitars is a celebration of blues rock from an artist […]

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 […]

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 […]

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. Greta Van Fleet is […]

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. So, for research purposes, I’ll mention that this was playing while my ten-months-pregnant wife thought she might be in labor. And upon hearing […]

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 […]
