Ruf Records artist: Katie Henry - Get Goin'- New Release Review

 I just had the opportunity to review the most recent release, Get Goin', from Katie Henry and it's a solid release of female vocal oriented music with hints of blues, country, pop, rock and soul. Opening with Scott Sharrard's, Love Like Kerosene, Katie Henry opens her latest release with a country flavored rocker on lead vocal and guitar. Joined by George Moye on bass, Matt Kimathi on drums and guitars, Eric Cannavaro on organ and keys, Richard Pappik on percussion and Michael Murauer on guitar, this is a solid radio worthy opener. Ballad, A Doll's Heart, has a strong melody, with firm support by Cannavaro on organ and keys and Kimathi on drums. Bernard Allison's shuffle, Clear Vision is one of my favorite tracks on the release with a really nice melody, lush key solo by Cannavaro, and tight drums by Kimathi. Wake Up Time is likely the top radio candidate on the release with it's sweet, unassuming melody and mellow vocals and forward yet unobtrusive guitar solo. My favorite track on the release is Bernard Allison's Bayou Boogie with it's spicy flavor and melodic guitar lead. Cannavaro really adds a richness with his keyboard solo and percussion by Pappik is the icing on the cake. Very nice. Wrapping the release is a more contemporary ballad arrangement of Willie Johnson's, Nobody's Fault But Mine. This mostly vocal (by Henry) over keyboard track is a solid closer for this release.
