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!

NOLA Blue Records artist: Meg Williams - Take Me As I Am: The Muscle Shoals Sessions - New Release Review

I just had the opportunity to review the most recent release, Take Me As I Am, by Meg Williams and it's a solid R&B/rock entry. Opening with radio track, Come On Over To Me, a slide guitar infused (Dan Wecht) R&B track, Williams leads the way on vocal and guitar, backed by Clayton Ivey on organ, Bob Wray on bass, Justin Holder on drums and Sara Rogers on backing vocals. Solid opener. Funky, Shame, is a bit sassy with Will McFarlane joining Wecht on guitar. With a snappy rhythm this track us upbeat and catchy. Little Bit Of The Devil is another radio strong track with a solid beat, and flashy slide work giving Williams a solid base to show her vocals over. Title track, Take Me As I Am, paired with What About Me are a great pop duo with super melody and nice vocal delivery by Williams. I like the additional complexity of Make A Move with it's vocal duet with Rogers and rock style guitar soloing giving it just a bit more textural bite. Wrapping the release is country flavored ballad, Take A Chance On My Love with it's smooth, easy tempo and warm vocal melody. A real nice melodic guitar solo by McFarlane gives this final track just that little kick making it a super closer for a real nice release.
