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!

Dan Ashley - Out There - New Release Review

 I just had the opportunity to review the most recent release, Out There, by Dan Ashley and it's packed full of likely radio tracks. Opening with River City vocalist Dan Ashley sets the pace with a rock pace. With hints of John Cougar and straight up radio rockers, Ashley is joined by Bill Bentley on guitar, bass and keys, Mike Vanderhule on drums and Cornell CC Carter, Angela Ashley and Angeline Bentley on backing vocals they should appeal to the Boston fans. Lucky Stars in a solid ballad featuring Ashley's vocals with rich backing vocal tones and primarily keyboard accompaniment by Ben Flint and clean violin work by Deb Ashley. Title track, Out There, has a funkier beat and a punchy bottom. Rich blended backing vocals are the trademark of this band with low growling guitar lead by Bentley. Feel The Heat is a straight up rocker with a tight drum beat/rhythm guitar setting and a rumbling bass line. Wrapping the release is solid radio track, Now and Again. With it's memorable melody and acoustic guitar accompaniment Dan Ashley wraps up this hit potential release with a soft touch.
