I started a quest to find terrific blues music and incredible musicianship when I was just a little kid. I also have a tremendous appreciation of fine musical instruments and equipment. One of my greatest joys all of my life was sharing my finds with my friends. I'm now publishing my journey. I hope that you come along!

Wendy Rich - It's All Nothing - New Release Review

I just received the newest release, It's All Nothing from Wendy Rich and it's a fine blend of rock, funk and country. Opening with Back To Zero, a cool funky rocker, Wendy Rich sets a strong pace with funky bass lines from Mark Andes, stinging guitar riffs from Kenny Cordray, Tyson Sheth on drums, Paul English on keys and sassy sax work by Eric Demmer. On ballad, Love and Happiness, Rich digs deep in a country/gospel style with warm key work by English. A really tasty guitar solo by Cordray sets the track off nicely. With even more country in the mix, Welcome Home is set for strong radio presence. Nicely mixed vocals really cement the deal on this one. Ballad, Losin' You has a country ballad feel with a bluesy taste. Amping up her vocals with contrasting guitar work by Rob McNelley and Kevin McKendree on organ gives this track nice oomph. Song About Nothing has a real cool swampy feel featuring Cordray on slide and with a cool bass line by Andes and tight drums by Sheth, this is likely my favorite track. Off The Deep End has a Rolling Stones kind of feel with Keith Richards like guitar riffs by McNelley. A clean rocker with a great riff and super piano work by McKendree. Wrapping the release with a Bo Diddley beat, Get It Together is a great closer. With rhythmic guitar work paired with tight drumming, it leaves you slapping your hands.
