Greta Van Fleet: Black Smoke Rising EP Review

Greta Van Fleet, a band sitting just below the radar, can count the days to their stardom if this EP is any indication of their potential. The band is comprised of three brothers; Sam, Jake and Josh Kiszka, and drummer Danny Wagner, hailing from the quiet (not for long) midwest town of Frankenmuth, Michigan. Their four song EP, titled Black Smoke Rising, is proof that the classics stand the test of time. Their sound channels blues infused classic rock greats the likes of Led Zeppelin. A hell of a company to keep.

Eli Cook: High Dollar Gospel Review

Who the hell is Eli Cook, and why haven’t I come across him before? The 31-year-old from Virginia has released six albums before High Dollar Gospel, fer chrissake, and if this is anything to go by his earlier efforts also deserve examination. If Jimmy Page had said to Paul Rodgers when they got together to form The Firm that they were going to make an acoustic blues album in the manner of “Hats Off To (Roy) Harper,” it might have sounded like this. Maybe.

Blues Traveler Interview: Chan Kinchla

Chan Kinchla has been a member of the blues rock band “Blues Traveler” since its inception back in the mid 1980’s, 30 years ago. Kinchla, John Popper, Brenden Hill and Bobby Sheehan, formed the band as “Blues Traveler” in 1987, in Princeton, New Jersey. In 1994, Blues Traveler released its fourth album titled Four and it sold six million copies, produced hits, “Run-Around,” which won a Grammy and “Hook.” Chan’s brother Tad replaced Sheehan in 1999, after he died from an accidental drug overdose and Ben Wilson was added as a keyboard player. The band continued to perform and appear in major film productions and television shows. Today in 2017, after releasing 12 albums they are as popular as ever and sell out shows as they continue their 30th anniversary tour, which doesn’t end until Christmas. Blues Rock Review’s Bob Gersztyn caught up with Kinchla before a recent gig.
