Dixiefrog Records artist: Bex Marshall - Fortuna - New Release Review

 I just had the opportunity to review the most recent release, Fortuna, from Bex Marshall and it's really good. Opening with blues rocker, Preaching To The Choir, Bex Marshall on lead guitar and lead vocal, sets the pace with Aurora Mannola laying down a driving bottom on bass and Richie Stevens on drums. Toby Baker on keys really works nicely against the wailing guitar lead of Marshall on this strong opener. Funky blues rocker, I Can't Look You In The Eye, features Marshall on lead vocal and slide with Scott Coopwood on lead guitar, Barry Bays on rhythm guitar, Robert Eugene Daniels on bass, and Brian Schilling on drums. A solid rocker with plenty of teeth. There's no denying the attraction of Marshall's vocal style on Table For One, and with a cool, bouncy funk by Baker on Keys and the solid bottom by Daniels and Stevens, this track could be a cool radio track. Wrapping the release is When It's Gone, a poppy track with a cool, bluesy feel. With a clean guitar lead and a bed of organ, overlaid with bluesy guitar riffs, this is a solid closer.
