WildRoots Records artist Dyer Davis - Dog Bites Back - New release Review

 I just had the opportunity to review the most recent release, Dog Bites Back, from Dyer Davis and I just gotta say, anyone who opens an album with a first class cover of a Jeff Beck rocker gets a free pass in my book and hearing Let Me Love You blowing out of my speakers with raw vocals and electrofired guitar riffs is great. Backed by Billy Dean on drums, Victor Wainwright on piano, Stephen Dees on bass, this track is excellent! Cryin' Shame has a bit of a R&B feel but is strong rock blues with clean guitar riffs and strong vocals by Davis. With David Weatherspoon on drums , Jacob Barone on bass, Billy Chapin on rhythm guitar and excellent trumpet punctuation and accents by Joe Young, Davis squeezes out for fine blues on buitar. Very nice. I really like the R&B feel of Lifting Up My Soul which makes a nice radio track. It's melody is strong and with melodic lead guitar and powerful horn work by Mark Earley and Patricia Ann Dees, this is strong. Title track, Dog Bites Back really has a nice bluesy rock groove and a strong guitar hook. Davis' lead vocals are really great and his command of the style of rock really is commendable. Great track. Wrapping the release is AKA which is consistant with the release and overall great writing. I really like Davis' vocals and his understated overall guitar attack is really nice. He can step on the gas at any time and pull the horses. The band is solid, tight and well presented. Looking forward to hearing more of this.
