Simon McBride: Since Then Review

Since Then is the sophomore release from Irish guitarist Simon McBride. After his impressive debut with Rich Man Falling, my expectations were extremely high for this release and McBride does not disappoint.

McBride is known for his blistering fret work and that continues in abundance on Since Then with scorching hot solos and licks. As one of the top up and coming artists on the blues rock scene, McBride’s style has wide appeal. “Take My Hand” and “Down to the Wire” show off McBride’s virtuosity while songs like “Tear Down Your Soul” and “Dancing on the Sidewalk” will be stuck in your head all day.

Since Then is another fantastic release from McBride. The future looks extremely bright as he is definitely on the verge of something special and his name should be coming up more and more in discussions of the top modern day guitarists.
