Rainbreakers: Rise Up EP Review

British band Rainbreakers hand us a stunner of an EP with depth of soul and inspired song writing in Rise Up. These guys are here to make a statement that they are part of new generation of blues-rock that’s combining the influences of the past but making it their own. The band’s line-up is Ben Edwards (vocals/rhythm guitar), Charlie Richards (lead guitar), Peter Adams (bass) and Sam Edwards (drums).

Shane Henry: Light In The Dark Review

Part of a great album is something subtle that happens in between the drum beats and the bass bops; something that’s under the lyrics and wrapped up in the guitar rhythms. A good album might not have one but every great album does and Shane Henry’s Light In The Dark is a great album because of its message. And that message is positivity. Positivity even in the face of the worst parts of life, an almost panglossian attitude that refuses to bow down to the strain of the everyday, or the whip of disaster. Produced in part by David Ryan Harris the album embodies the blues with more than just the sum of its parts. It captures the soul of the blues, the soul of perseverance.

Joe Bonamassa: Live At Carnegie Hall – An Acoustic Evening Review

The piano intro to Jethro Tull’s “Locomotive Breath” is a witty precursor to “This Train,” the opening track on this live recording from January 2016 of Joe Bonamassa playing with an entirely acoustic 9-piece outfit, featuring familiar collaborators like Reese Wynans on piano and Anton Fig on drums, as well as some new faces who help to conjure up a fresh take on some familiar material.

Thomas Wynn and the Believers: Wade Waist Deep Review

Thomas Wynn and the Believers, a six-piece band from Orlando, Florida, will celebrate the release of its third album Wade Waist Deep this weekend, a 12-track project that manages to sound raw and polished at once. The band has a considerable lack of visibility on rock’s national stage, despite local accolades: voted the Best of Orlando #1 Rock Band from 2009 through 2015 by Orlando Weekly, TW&TB have performed at festivals and in small venues, shared stages with the likes of Gov’t Mule, the Wallflowers, Blackberry Smoke and others, and last year signed with Mascot Label Group, the blues label that’s home to artists like Beth Hart and Eric Gales. It’s difficult to crack the code for success in the music business, but it might be time for TW&TB to earn recognition on a larger scale.
