Outside Music Label artist: Tami Neilson - Don't Be Afraid - New Release review

I just had the opportunity to review the most recent release, Don't Be Afraid, from Tami Neilson and it's got bite. Opening with Don't Be Afraid, the last song written by her father, Ron Neilson, this album is off on a great foot. A powerful, gospel blues style number, shows the absolute power of Tami Neilson's vocals accompanied by the wildly cool guitar work of Dave Khan and Delaney Davidson, bass by Ben Woolley and drums of Joe McCallum. WOW! With a blend of punk, pop, gospel and country, Holy Moses is a mover. Lonely is a solid country pop track in the vein of Patsy Cline. No questions that Neilson has the pipes to pull it off. One of my favorite tracks on the release, Bury My Body, has a dark, southern gospel blues feel. With only basic instrumentation of drum and rim shot, slide guitar and vocals, this track is hot! Latin influenced, Loco Mama really shows the flexibility of the band with it's Rhumba beat, flashy guitar and sassy vocal style of Neilson. Very cool. Another of the top radio tracks on the release, Only Tears, pairs Neilson with Woolley for a terrific country pop duet and features Red McKelvie on pedal steel. Wrapping the release is a raw demo by Ron singing Don't Be Afraid. A very cool conclusion to a strong release.
