CD submissions accepted! Guest writers always welcome!!

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!

Shark Park Records artist: Lea McIntosh - Blood Cash - New Release Review


I just had the opportunity to review the most recent release, Blood Cash (August 20, 2021), from Lea McIntosh and it's a cool bluesy rock release. Opening with title track, Blood Cash, with it's country blues rock influences, McIntosh's vocals are authorative joined by Travis Cruse on guitar, bass and drums, and Andy Just on harmonica. Solid opener. Slinky, soul fused, Blue Stoned Heart, shows McIntosh at her best vocally with a funky bass line by Myron Dove and Deszon Claiborne on drums, Eamonn Flynn on keys, Cruse on Vibanet and laying down a sweet guitar solo. Latin based, Purple Suede Boots is one of my favorites with Just and Cruse trading riffs and a tight drum rhythm by Claiborne. Very cool. Soul Stripper has all of the characteristics of a pure radio track with strong vocals and melody and includes warm Hammond work from Flynn and some flashy guitar lead by Cruse over a real nice bass line by Dove. Very nice. Wrapping the release is The Fire Is Coming, a solid rocker with straight ahead attack with backing vocals by Tammi Brown and Will Bell and another fiery guitar solo by Cruse. Nice closer.
