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!

Cali Bee Music artist: Brad "Guitar" Wilson - Buckle Up - New Release Review


I just had the opportunity to review the most recent release, Buckle Up, from Brad "Guitar" Wilson and it's a solid blues rocker. Opening with rock n roller, Lucille, with it's Chuck Berry overtones, driven by the bass lines of Hal Cragin on bass, Adam Gust on drums, Chris Rhyne on piano and Wilson on lead vocal and lead guitar. Solid opener. Boogie rockin, Hoodoo Party, really has a great feel and Wilson gets a chance to walk his guitar up and down the fretboard with plenty of rocking style. Very cool. Title track, Buckle Up, really has a bit of Lynyrd Skynyrd swagger. With backing vocal by Su Isaac and Galen Keith and cool rhythm guitar riffs putting you in mind of Keith Richards, this is a cool radio track. Cast Your Shade is a cool, blues rocker with a strong bottom. Wilson's vocals nicely compliment the strong guitar phrasing and excellent drum rhythm on this track. A guitar ballad, Sky Full Of Rain should really attract crowd appeal with a strong melody, lead vocal and longer, well formed guitar phrases and expressions along the lines of Gary Moore, Joe Bonamassa or David Gilmore. Wrapping the release is Hit It, with a contemporary rock feel. With synthesized horns, organ and jazzy guitar, Wilson, jams over a very danceable closer.
