A band well and truly keeping the raw energy and passion of blues rock and roll alive and well. With original songwriting, uplifting ideas, compelling storytelling, and infectiously energizing guitar riffs and rhythms, their latest two releases see them pave their own way in the modern music world, and it’s a joy to be able to experience that journey with them.
Prior to the release of their long-awaited album, The Kelly Bell Band burst onto the 2019 scene with a brilliantly vibrant and beautifully upbeat blues-rock classic entitled Long Train.
It’s a simple song, but it works – everything is on point – effective riffs, minimalism, realness, fun; the makings of a smooth hit are there. A great song and one with a fairly timeless quality.
Bud Summers combines detailed story-telling with a simple and spacious blues backdrop and some quickly familiar melodies on this new project Hard Lessons.
Do yourself a favor, whether you typically like this kind of music or not, give this album a listen. I guarantee you’ll end up a fan.
It would be a crying shame for the world not to hear this project, eclectic and endlessly skillful – a total joy to escape within and the perfect accompaniment to almost any kind of day.
The music is far from simple, on the contrary – it’s complex and unpredictable; it’s jazz with grit, with sadness and unsettling energy, and it captivates in being this.
Lucy, Racquel and Me have that something special about their songwriting, and always the professional finish lets it hit with memorable impact. Melancholy Fraise is a genuinely impressive album.
By the Way of the Devil is flat out weird, but it’s also genius. Pete Murphy has proven once again that his experimental and unapologetic artistry is truly one of a kind.
The Live Sessions is music for music’s sake, and if mainstream culture has made you forget what that sounds like, Torelli and the Fuse are here to remind you.
Grinded Grin hold nothing back and refuse to adhere to expectation or industry standards with this aptly-titled album Reset. Taking their time to craft uniquely ambient soundscapes around the listener, the band offer an original fusion of various musical angles and genres.
A uniquely crafted release that offers plenty in the way of originality among today’s music world. The retro style is oddly refreshing and you can feel the organic nature of the performance and thus appreciate that a live show would go down in a fairly similar fashion.
