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!

Up 2 Zero Entertainment artist: Anthony Gomes - Peace, Love & Loud Guitars - New Release review

I just had the opportunity to review the most recent release, Peace, Love & Loud Guitars, from Anthony Gomes and it has the signature Gomes edgy rock blues feel. Opening with solid rocker, Come Down, Gomes is handling lead vocal and guitar. Backed by Mike Brignardello on bass, Greg Morrow on drums, David Smith on keys, Chris Leuzinger on acoustic guitar and Angie Primm, Gale Stuart, Devonne Foulkes and Gomes on backing vocals this is a nice opener. Turning up the blues, Blues In The First Degree has a great pace and Gomes' vocals are gritty and raw. His guitar soloing has real bite and Brignardello's bass lines are perfect. Shuffle track, The Whiskey Made Me Do It, is one of those tracks that you know will be a huge concert favorite. Gomes' slide work gives the track a steamy edge making this one of my favorite tracks on the release. The radio choice for the release is ballad, You Are Amazing with it's supple melody, fluid guitar solos and solid vocals. Very nice. Title track, Peace, Love & Loud Guitars is a classic rocker with rowdy guitar riffs which would fill any arena with screaming head bangers. Another track with mass appeal is Your Mama Wants To Do Me with the following lyric (and your daddy wants to do me in). Another of my favorites, Hard Road Easy, has a great drum floor compliments of Morrow paired with Gomes' guitar lines giving it a Led Zep feel. His soloing on this track is smooth and lush. Wrapping the release is ballad, Take Me Back Home featuring Gomes way out front on lead vocals with only the necessity of backing instrumentation. A very clean closer for a solid release.
