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!

VizzTone Label Group artist: Katy Guillen & The Girls - Remember What You Knew Before - New Release Review

I just had the opportunity to review the newest release, Remember What You Knew Before, from Katy Guillen & The Girls and it's a solid country, pop, rock release. Opening with Slingshot, a Buckingham Nicks style track with Katy Guillen on guitar and lead vocal, Claire Adams on bass and vocal and Stephanie Williams on drums these ladies know how to blend vocals on a strong melody. Waiting Till The Day is a really nice ballad with only acoustic guitar and electric guitars, bass and drums accompanying  smooth vocals. Very nice. Grabbing a stripped down blues rock feel, Humbucker is one of my favorite tracks on the release with resonator slide and tight vocal blending matching some of the super work of Veruca Salt and Sleater-Kinney . Another cool rocker is Can't Live Here Anymore with a great pop rock feel and just the right edge. Showing her Spanish guitar styling on Quiver, Guillen changes gears but maintains her signature pure blended vocal styling. This really is solid! Wrapping the release is If You Were Gone with it's light touches of country and Jack White. Featuring straight up finger picking by Guillen and rich vocals by the band, this is a super closer. This isn't your traditional blues release, but it is a good release and one that goes by really fast.
