“FEELING THE HEAT”

The amazing and red hot new album release from singer songwriter and extreme guitarist Pebo Wilson and his album called “Playing With Fire” is red hot and on fire. The first track is called “Barn Burns Down” and the song has a great sounding rhythm section to die for. Pebo and his amazing guitar riffs rip and shred their way through the song. The next song is a sort of ballad love song it’s called “Devil Has To Win” and the song has substance and I really enjoy the song. It has a smoothness to it, and the sax keep the music alive and adds a saxual element. Pebo’s got a sound that allows your ears to be entertained throughout this amazing and superbly crafted music album. Pebo has a way to keep the harmonies flowing and this song is a fine example of. “She Thinks She Knows Me” another great written and sung song that allows one to really hear Pebo’s vocals and his voiceis one to be reckoned with. Pebo’s music isn’t quite country it’s more southern rock with a nice edge of rock & roll and has a real solid feel to it. I guess the way I describe it. Pebo’s songs on this superb and polished album have grip to them, where as they stick with you and have true musical texture. The next song called “I Drink Alone” is already a hit in my opinion, it has all the elements and more an Pebo really showcases his ability to have a solid rock and roll song and at the same time keep it slow. What a superb and smooth sounding song that has that sound that has true credibility to it and Pebo has an almost Kid rock feel to it, and adds his flavor that is all his own and radio needs to be hearing this song. There is a rough edgy feel to Pebo and his style of music, where I can’t place a particular genre on it, but shares hints of southern rock and country and is tremendously entertaining. The next song called “I Want To Go To Heaven” has a simple sound that really has a simple feel to it and Pebo strums along with it and has a message in all of his lyrics, in which they all have true life inflection injected into them, and makes a song come alive. Pebo definitely has that in all he writes and throughout this wonderful and finely crafted album. “Playing With Fire” Pebo has an almost Crazy Horse guitar that adds in a hint and small element of Native beat. As the guitars rip and start  showcasing and  shredding to the total musicality of Pebo Wilson. With that being said the next song called “Different Worlds” Pebo brings in the totally identifiable sound of Native American within the intro of the song, and has amazing rhythm to it and the eclectic feel to it and Pebo brings in his talented fingers for some amazing and fancy fret work and has real entertainment value to it. The album title of “Playing With Fire” adds heat to every song on this amazing and intense music album. I really was entertained with the song called “Choctaw Woman” where Pebo  makes the strings of guitar twist and turn in a direction that has a phenomenal sound and was most enjoyable to the ears. “Right Through It All” another song that has a hint of good old country southern rock to it. Pebo Wilson consistently has this throughout this red hot and on fire album. The song and Pebo and his vocals are a match made in heaven and this is one of those albums that remain in heavy rotation and always will. Pebo Wilson has a simplistic, yet has a real feel to his wonderful musical catalog and this album has cemented this with me. “Burn” the final song on this album is another example of how Pebo uses that bending of the chord work that is very contagious and sounds really great. Throughout this album I heard sounds of Native American, Southern Rock, Country and just damn good guitar work throughout that is really impressive and Pebo has impressed me with his second to none feel that set my speakers on fire as I gave this album it’s time to spin it’s magic, and it has more than magic it has intensity that will most indeed make the “Barn Burn Down” and with the amazing guitar work of Pebo Wilson your ears will ignite with much delight. Many thanks to Pebo Wilson and his great friendship and his superb music talent and allowing me to be exposed to his flamable and very flavored guitar work and amazing and purely red hot talent.

“MELODIES OF THE HEART”

As I listened to the music project from musician and singer/ songwriter David Woods, the album is called “My Stuff” and that is exactly what you get when you hear David’s wonderful & thoughtful music. The first track on this album is called “My Head In The Sand” and David has that hauntingly good sound that brings the flavor of  a deep writer and David shows his pure talent in his writing. With that in mind the album turns and twists it way and you hear the rustic flavor of the song called “A Quiet Country Morning” and David once again proves his writing ability to have lyrics and songs that matter. With this in mind the next track is called “I Still Love you” and David has the ability with the acoustic sound that has that sound that allows your mind to travel back into time and hear the amazing smoothness of a guitar weeping along with the lyrics of the song called “I Still Love You” “To Lay Beside You A While” David embraces his amazing lyrical content and brings his focus into view, that shares a little folk ballad that is amazing and keeps the ears tuned into your speakers and allows you to feel the true emotional level of where David is at. A really beautiful love ballad, and I have told you before I am a true sucker for a good love ballad and this song is the epitome of a tried & true love ballad, and I really love it. “Move On” picks up the pace a little with the use of tambourine and David has that ability to move you with his amazing sound and superior writing skills that add so much and makes the song very fulfilling in every way. The next song called “Good Time Blues” David makes the guitar swing into action and swings into the blues and has a down and grindy feel to it that keeps that blues feeling with in the listener experience. “Sheba St. Marie” a song that has a tempo where you hear the accordion and the real feel of a true musician and one of those songs that you can’t get out of your head, it was contagious and a song that has a sing a long ability, which is nice, because every now & Then ya wanna just sit back and sing along with the song your listening to.  The next song called “When Sadie Sings” David continues with his real roots, Folk Rock with meaning. I listened to this wonderful and amazingly beautiful album I really felt, that David is not only a country guy, his true sound envelopes the folk sound and kept me listening and entertained. “Kathy’s Song” David utilized the phasing process and gave me a true flashback to the 60’s and I thought this is where David arrived with the name of this album, ” My Stuff”. “The Love in Your Heart” the next song on the album has a hauntingly beautiful arrangement and David’s vocals just blend in so well within the mix of rock, pop, folk and just plain great music. David has the musicality part down to a science, and David’s lyrics are a cut above and really meaningful and very heartfelt. As I listen intently to this wonderful album and David’s beautiful lyrics and the musicality he really strikes me as a folk guy and has that ability to bring your heart in with his amazing acoustical strums of his weeping guitar and his outstanding lyrical content that carry a true message of what David wishes to share through his amazing and purely touching music. I thank David for his wonderful and amazing friendship & his superb musicality and lovely lyrics that really make sense and matter and warm the heart.

“INTIMATE, INTRICATE AND AMAZING

Well,  a musician that has an incredible sounding and showcases this through his latest music project. The music artist Damien Bonazzoli and his album called “The Endless Highway” the album has tremendous guitaristic flare and lots of blues influences. The album starts out with the song called “An Unexpected Truth” and showcases an almost flamencoish style that adds to the appeal. The song has a sound of a Mason Williams “Classical Gas” feel to it but Damien adds his powerful guitar fingers to the mix and does an exceptional job riff after riff. As I continued my voyage through this really superb virtuoso guitarist I picked up Damiens feel for perfection in all of his true musical styling. “Invicta” a song that rings out and spells out a tremendous reach for the blues that and I heard the electricfication throughout this song. Damien is truly talented and shows his amazing abilities that hits on the cusp of the musical guitar heavens. With the next track called “Wildcat Blues” Damien once again hits the chords just right and allows you to hear and feel the blues as it pumps through your veins. “Soltice” brings in a flavor of slower tempo blues, and gets you in the blues mood, as the song really picks the tempo. The guitar work is phenomenal and intricate. Damien and his talent guide you through this amazing and super charged album. “Winter” another cut that allows you to feel the “Claptonish” flavor and Damien & his amazing abilities allow you to feel that signature throughout this album. The album is a purely instrumental album, and despite this I felt the major presence of solid and sound musicality throughout. “The Road Less Traveled” really projects a sound that is truly amazing and wonderful. It has the feelings with the true intricate fret work of one,  Damien Bonazzoli. The next track on this highly detailed and truly defining album is called “Hardscrabble Road” and is a gentle but amazing sounds that take on a truly amazing feel and keep the emotional level moving along. “The Silver Cloud” has element of theatrical feel to it and keeps the journey moving along nicely as Damien shows of his perfection and timing to make a superb sounding blues song. “A Driving Rain” has gentle hints of flamenco buried within the borders of blues riffs and kept the speakers on their highest level all the way through. “Wander With Me” showcases Damiens detailed guitar work and true intimate side. The tempo slowed down and I felt the smoothness of the non abrasive vibes of Damiens gentle finger work on this truly amazing and wonderful song. The next track called “El Dorado” has complexed and driven fret work and Damien a “show off”, shows us how it’s done. ” A Long Drink at a Certain Bar” Steve’s Blues” Damien,  since this song has Steve in it I had to give it special attention, and this song really reflects a true and superb guitar player Damien Bonazzoli showing off his stuff. Fine work and supreme guitar skills and real talent. “Whispers” a song that has the signature feel and the real emotion along with it and has that real blues presence and approach and kept my ears glued to my speakers to hear and feel that total true talent that Damien projects on throughout this intricate and yet powerful amazing work of art. “Far Away”, what can I say, it is a true and amazing witness to what Damien Bonazzoli is as a true blues guy and an amazing ability to convey this through his fancy and talented digits. I have been a blues fan for a long while, and now that I’ve heard this wonderful and superbly crafted project called “Endless Highway” by Damien Bonazzoli,  I will remain a blues fan. The last song called “The Endless Highway” is a real good reason to stay a blues fan. The song has a rich crisp and ever so clear sound that has superb detailed guitar work and Damien Bonazzoli brings it to life with his amazing and true talent that is projected throughout his entire musical catalog. I do look forward to hearing more from Damien and anxious await to hear what’s next for his truly dynamic digits that keep you entertained and to the point of memerized and leaving you wanting more. Many thanks to Damien and for his friendship & for his amazing and finely crafted and intricately played musical talent and his willingness to share it with me.

“EXPRESSIVE VIBES”

As a writer music publicist promoter and music reviewer I must say I have been involved in the music scene for at least 30 some years. With this being said an music album arrived the other day in my mail bag from an amazing array of talent. Arriving from the Great American Songbook, and a song written by Tanya Wills. The name of the band is The Tanya Wills Quartet, and her debut album is called “It’s Time”. Wowsers!!! amazing, from the start of this marvelous and simply out freaking unbelievable, Tanya and her vocals are both exciting, and sultry and damn near pitch perfect. The album starts out with a bang, an version, and I might add a sexy one at that of Otis Blackwell & Elvis Presley a song called “All Shook Up” and Tanya got me All Shook Up, after hearing her version. Tanya has a sound that evolves and reflects such pure emotions and it bleeds love & passion. The next song on this amazing and sure fire album Tanya adds her sultriness and purely sensual vocals to the song called “Lazy Afternoon” and Tanya and the Quartet make the “A” train on this arrival. The next track was written by Tanya, and it tucks in nicely within the assortment of the rest of the album and Tanya has the ability to make one feel as if you have been transported back to the days of “Wine & Roses”. With this being said the next song has been one of my favorites of all time, the song “Cry Me A River”, Tanya places her magical and pure elements of sophistication on it and arrives with pure satisfaction. As I listened to this amazing album I began to feel a pulse running through my veins, and with the next song really blew me away. The song “Jambalaya” a Hank Williams Sr. song, but never the less Tanya moves her magic and touching vocals on the song and proves her total vulnerabilities and brings a new breath to the song. “When Sunny Gets Blue” another song from the Great American Songbook, Tanya lends her sensuous vocals and brought my heart along with the emotion reflected within Tanya’s amazing talents. “If I Were A Bell” Tanya brings in her true talents and really has what it takes to make this song alive and has a kind of bebop with attitude. All through this wonderful and true to form album Tanya & the Quartet keep that rhythm moving along and made me feel as I have traveled back in time to hear all of these great songs for the first time. With 2 grandparents being opera singers and her formal training in dance Tanya arrives with a true to life sound that goes unmatched. “Rain On The Roof” another really amazing and so expressive with Tanya and her rich and full bodied vocal range makes the song and contends to be as good as the original. “Nice Work If You Can Get It” Tanya takes on the Gershwin Brothers songbook and not only rises to the occasion, but puts it through the roof, Tanya has an amazing vocal range and her sultriness adds fire and heat that keeps the feet moving and the heart smiling all the way through. With all of her tremendous vocals and total musicality Tanya Wills & her Quartet simply amazed me and with the next song called “Down To The River To Pray/ Down By The Riverside, Tanya brings out her sensitivity and ultimate tender side and makes an amazing and really heartfelt and really quite emotionally filled song that stirred my emotions to the point of tears streaming down my face, tears that were provoked by Tanya and her truly talented vocal articulation. As I listened to this amazing and truly a gift and musical treasure the next song even felt so crisp & real and up close and personal, where once again Tanya Willis has that consistent ability to provoke and maintain a totally amazing feeling and emotional level through her contagious and rich sultry and breathable vibes through her amazing assortment on this superior and maturely crafted music album that I will cherish forever. I thank Tanya for her amazing talent & friendship & her Quartet for their amazing talents as well. I look forward to hearing the next level of Tanya’s music journey and feel these tremendous vibes of an truly American songstress Tanya Wills Quartet.

Oh and a side note their is a “hidden track” on the Album where Tanya sings the Mac Davis song “In the Ghetto” and once again, shows her true & honest and sincere full rich flavor of her tremendous vocals.

“FEELING THEM BLUES”

As Iistened to the amazing and almost eclectic sounds of a band called Black Market III, With  blues hints along the way, along with real rock added grungy flavor enhanced style On the new album “Dashboard Jesus” Daddy Rollin’ Stone” has got flare and I even heard a little gospel sound tucked beneath the musicality of this wonderful music group. The next song featured on this album is called “Wouldn’t Treat A Dog, The Way You Treated Me”, and the song has a deep soul reaching kind of sound that is very distinctive and nice. The album shares a bluesy feel to it as well with the next song “Your Love Is So Cruel” and Dashboard Jesus puts their spin on it and arrives with splendor and magnitude. “When The Sun Goes Down” is a work of lead singer & lead  guitarist for the band Scottie Blinn, and has a personal feel to it, and Scottie seems to have his cards in order with this song. The band has a feel of grunge and darkness but through that darkness arrives a clarity and magnification of the traditional bluesy feel. The song called “House Of The Rising Sun” a remake, despite this Scottie serves up the song with total awesomeness. On this song they actually slow the tempo down and make allow the feelings to be felt. “Prelude” has a slow down kind of feel in the beginning of the song with the approaching heaviness filling the speaker, only to evolve a guitaristic sound that showcases Scottie Blinn, and the rest of this eclectic and multi talented musical band of the millennium. “Black Roses” has a feel of the dark side of their music and brings in an almost late 60’s feel to it, despite this the band continues to amaze me. “Regresare” has a truly one of a kind sound that shares hints of accordion music and even sounds of the violin and brings a sound of Itlaia, but once again the band as one arrives with a sound that grows on you. “Live & Let Live” again has a sound that has a darkness to it that has a riff in it that derives from the Jimi Hendrix guitar school. All through the album the sounds from the 60’s and seventies rock bled through my speakers and I actually felt the vibes of that era in the bands music song selection. “O’ Mary Don’t You Weep” Scottie showcases his vocals and inthis case some major “pipes” and maintains the true strength in their band as a true contender in the music scene. The last song called “Gallows Pole” really brings in the blues with a really traditional blues song like this you will need a band that has their “Shit” together and this band does. If you have ears for the blues, this band has it for you. Scottie Blinn and Black Market III with their latest musical add “Dashboard Jesus” has that sound that brought me, back to the age of where blues intercepted with rock and brought us the Jimi Hendrix experience, and in response inspired so many others to play the blues. I thank Scottie Blinn for allowing me to be exposed to such a talented music band and would love, love to see them in concert in the “live” experience to get the full impact and actually feel the true pulse of their true talent up and close. I also thank the band for their amazing sounds that arrive in my speakers and allow me to feel and hear their incredible talent.

“SMELLIN’ AND FEELIN’ IT”

Well I have very impressed with what I’ve heard, lately, musically at least. The latest single from her new assortment of song.  Teresa Topaz, and her single “Whiskey Kinda Girl” the song starts out with the smell and feel of a real bluesy and has a feel of Sheryl Crowish kind of sound. The song carries emotion with it. Teresa seems to grab all musical styles and weave them  together and arrive with her own style. Teresa Topaz has the look and the sounds after reading and learning more about her & that she means business. The song has a bluesy feel added with the rock atmosphere and made me feel like I was in the club having a drink and absorbing all the scents and sounds of my surroundings. Teresa plays a mean and straight to the gut approach in her charismatic way of guitar licks.Teresa reflects her ability to write and compose an amazing song with this most recent release. I have enjoyed it thoroughly and left me wanting more. Teresa Topaz is one to be watched in the music scene, she has the feel and the pure presence of her style and makes me want to hear more from her. With Teresa and her charming looks, curvy cleavage and skin tats, allows one to know and see why Teresa Topaz really is a “Whiskey Kinda Girl” and adds to her credibility of who she is as amazing singer and as a talented kick butt and take no prisoners songwriter that projects hard edged musicality added with the hints of blues and ramped up with the full flavor of good rock. I thank Teresa for her amazing friendship and her superb musical talent and looking forward to hearing more of her eclectic and amazing musical talent.

“HINTS OF THE PAST”

With my latest listening time I found a band called The Fabrockators, with a couple of albums in hand one called “Just a Fabrockation” and another called “Party You Give” the band has a heavy feel at first listen. As you hear more you kind of get the sense of what they are about. The first cut called “Traveling” the band has a dirty rock kind of punk and rock all wound together and has something that I can’t place the finger on, yet.. As I listened the next track called “Don’t Bring Me Down” the band brings in a sound that has classic rock but with a strange twist. The rhythm section is all together and the song kind of reminded me of my fraternity days of college, where the band played as we partied on and on. The next song called “Hot Rod” the band continues with the sound of heaviness and with a twist of rebel rock. The next song called “Party You Give” is one of those songs that has speed and the musicality elevates you as you listen. “Lightning, Rain and Thunder” a solid song that brings in the element of classic rock and with a sound that ushers in the late sixties feel to it. With this song the band begins to evolve in what you are listening to. With the next song called “Any Kind Of Thrill” the band rebel rock flows through and once again you hear the psychedelic and almost acid feel to their music. As I strolled through the album the next track called “Moving North” brought in the horn section and the rhythm and the song has a catchy flavor to it and lends it’s good name to the name of the album “Party You Give” The next track called “Winter’s Coming” in a strange way kind of resembled early Grateful Dead, but the Craig Pavone leads the band and keeps up the party flare rolling through the arteries of the song assortment and continues to have that party feel to it. The band has a bluesy feel to it at times and the song “Got My Freedom” has a few hints of blues riffs woven into it, and as I listened I still heard some influences of late sixties psychedelic music scene and is quite interesting in a band of today. The band has sound that is fueled by heavy metal add in a little punk and acid rock of the 60’s music and you’ll find this band, The Fabrockators. the last song on this album is called “The Sin” continues to have that feel to it of dark but melodic rock of the past,  but remains consistent with the feel and body of the rest of the album. As I listened to the album a couple of times I realized that The Fabrockators are in a class of their own, they make music that is uniquely theirs and share a bit and hints of the psychedelic sixties music and is nice to have a band that doesn’t sound like everyone else. All in all the album has a good feel to it and one would have to be in a certain frame of mind to truly absorb their musicality. I feel that they have a sound that needs to be heard and to be honest have your other classic rock and Jimi Hendrix and magic mushrooms ready for the true experience. I thank all the band members of their contribution to the music scene and their entertaining and thought provoking and unique and original music.
