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!

Sadson Music artist: Rusty Wright Band - Hangin' at the DeVille Lounge - New Release Review

 I just had the opportunity to review the most recent release, Hangin' at the DeVille Lounge, from Rusty Wright Band, and it's a solid blues rocker. Opening with House of Spirits, Rusty Wright is upfront on lead vocal and guitar, backed by Laurie LaCrosse-Wright on guitar, Billy Agner on bass and Vail Hayes on drums. This slow, bluesy ballad with it's dark overtones is a solid opener for what's to come. Wright lays don't soulful lead under his vocal work with Agner. Blending a traditional blues form with a heavier rock style, Devil Man Blues has a heavy bottom and distorted vocals. I really like this approach and Wright shows cool chops blending the two forms together nicely. No Man Is An Island is a pure blues ballad with strong vocals by Wright and rich vocal blending with Laurie and Billy. Melodic lead by Wright is bound to make this a solid radio player. Very nice. Another solid blues track, Trouble's Always Knockin' with excellent lead vocal and guitar by Wright and conventional blues formatting is really a nice showcase for Wrights  fluid lead work and composition. Wrapping the release is Devil Music with it's Hendrix style attack. Wright, with super vocals and aggressive guitar lead, reinforced by Agner and Hayes really hammers this release closed. Very cool.
