Sketches Of A Renegade is a hugely needed, freshly invigorating set of acoustic blues. From the moment Jay Fraser’s latest batch of recordings begins, its gloriously stripped-down songs strike a chord in the listener.
Jay Fraser has released three full-length albums to date, as well as Sketches Of A Renegade, and really shines on his latest effort. His steady hands and his powerful yet subtle voice command attention. It’s a simple but powerful mix that proves his ability.
The production on Sketches is near-perfect, and gets out of the way enough to let Fraser shine through. He’s got something good going for him, and I expect that if he keeps it up he can capture the hearts and ears of thousands more people worldwide.
This review was short and sweet, but so is Sketches. It’s a lovely bit of blues, and you owe it to yourself to pick it up for FREE over at http://music.buildingsofdreams.com/
