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!

Skylar Rogers - Firebreather - New Release Review

 I just had the opportunity to review the most recent release, Firebreather, from Skylar Rogers and she shows a powerhouse voice. Opening with Hard Headed Woman, Rogers' vocals dance on a floor of rock with a light funky bottom. Featuring Steven J Hill and Marty Gibson on guitars, Jerry Ewing on bass, Pete Zimmer on keys and Bradley Arl on drums, this is a solid opener. R&B track, Like Father Like Daughter has real radio appeal with it's great lead vocal and melody and solid backing vocals by Arl, Hill, Ewing and Vanessa Hudson. Soul track, Failure has really a great melody and gives Rogers a great opportunity to showcase her phrasing over a simple guitar lead backing. Title track, Firebreather is a potent rocker with heavy drums and organ. Rogers holds the track in her hand stirring and fiery guitar solos give the track extra punch. My favorite track on the release is Drowning, with it's arpeggiated keyboard and potent bottom accenting the tension in Roger's vocals. Very nice.  Wrapping the release is up beat, Insecurities, with it's tight drum pattern, warm backing vocals and jangly guitar. This is a cool release with cool R&B appeal.
