Malone Sibun: Come Together Review

Marcus Malone and Innes Sibun of Malone Sibun form one of the most exciting blues rock groups on the UK scene right now. Both Malone and Sibun have climbed the rank of blues rock artists as distinguished musicians. Teaming up, the power duo were nominated for Best Band at the European Blues Awards before releasing […]

Marcus King: El Dorado Review

Marcus King’s El Dorado features lots of fun, 70s-inspired blue-eyed soul that’s perfectly entertaining on its own. However, as you learn more about King and about the album, its direction becomes more and more interesting. For one thing, despite his rich, textured voice, King is just 23-years-old. And King is considered a guitar hero, something […]

Zack Walther Band: The Westerner Review

With his long-time drummer and creative partner Matt Briggs, Zack Walther reassembles his eponymous band to release The Westerner, an LP comprised of 10 songs (seven of them new) in the Texas-steeped sound of blues-country rock. Mike Atkins (keys, bass, vocals) joins the duo along with a number of other musicians, creating a diverse set […]

Keb’ Mo’: Moonlight, Mistletoe, and You Review

Keb’ Mo’ emulates the Christmas Spirit in Moonlight, Mistletoe, & You. Recorded in Tennessee, the album definitely shows off Keb’ Mo’s gift for writing blues while also giving listeners a taste of his fresh R&B style. Highlighting the romance and joy that come with the holiday season, Moonlight, Mistletoe, & You is a wonderful winter […]

Sparky Parker: In the Dark Review

Hendrix included little skits on his albums and seemed to vibrate at his own frequency. Vaughan was similarly odd, running around in a hat and kimono, like some kind of […]

The Sensational Barnes Brothers: Nobody’s Fault But Mine Review

Growing up in a musical family, brothers Chris and Courtney Barnes formed a fresh gospel duo in Memphis Tennessee. Known as The Sensational Barnes Brothers, the pair have a natural gift for music which is exemplified in their album, Nobody’s Fault But Mine. 

Nicholas David: Yesterday’s Gone Review

Perhaps the secret behind Nicholas David’s organic, natural sound is as simple as letting the music arise organically and naturally. There was no apparent rush to create Yesterday’s Gone, released three years after With These Hands. In fact, his time spent opening for, and playing with the Devon Allman Project, seems to have been the […]

Kamchatka: Hoodoo Lightning Review

I judge the quality of a song by stripping it down to its barest essentials. If someone can convey a complex idea using just voice and instrument, you know it’s a solid concept. Because it’s way too easy for artists to hide behind lush productions that mask the absence of depth. So pretty much any […]
