Kindred Spirit – CD Review

Country-Western at its best. This CD from Kindred Spirit imbodies all that is Country. The vocals a top-notch with outstanding vocal harmonies and fantastic musicianship.‘Home Sweet Honky Tonk’ reminded me quite a bit of Bon Jovi’s Wanted Dead Or Alive. The songs range from your typical country storyline tear-jerker as in ‘Make Something Up’, and …

The Bottomfeeders – CD Review

Though I understand this CD was recorded in a home studio atmosphere, you’d never know it. The recording is very high quality. It is loaded with a lot of very good songs. Waiting In The Wings, is pop to hard rock with great harmony and is a real rocker. High Horse, has sort of a …

The Bottomfeeders at The Dragonfly

Members: Ed Saenz, Jay Johnson, Matt Simpson, John Andrews I enjoyed my night at The Dragonfly in Hollywood and the performance by The Bottomfeeders. Their music combines pop rock, alternative (whatever that means howadays), blues, touches of funk, and even country now and then. You name it, it’s there in different combinations and all tasty. …

Joel Crawford – CD Review

Joel Crawford This CD is very reminiscent of those 60’s parity albums by the likes of artists such as Ray Stevens. Joel’s songs cover musical genres from country to surf and everything in-between. “Not Tonight Dear” made my chuckle because it is so like many country-western songs that are meant to be taken seriously but …

Sinis – CD Review

This 4-song CD is straight-up, good ol’ hard rock.Heavily AC/DC infleunced with their solid, chunky rhythms and chord progressions, especially noted in Black 13 and Straight Up. Though the guitar work in Rock Show reminded me a lot of Great White, one of my favorite bands. All songs on this CD are hard rock A+.
