Blue Pearl Records artist: Deb Callahan - Backbone - New Release Review

 I just had the opportunity to review the most recent release, Backbone, by Deb Callahan and it's solid with lots of sting. Opening with high steppin', What I'm Workin For, singer songwriter, Deb Callahan hits hard with plenty of attitude. With Allen James on guitar, Tom Walling on drums, Danny Schogger on keys, Jay Davidson on sax, Steve Jankowski on horns and Charlene Holloway on backing vocals, a lively opener. With a punchy bass line by Garry Lee and strong guitar lead by James on Big Girl Pants, Callahan really carves a moving funky rock track. Very cool. Slinky, A Few New Tricks, really showcases Callahan's vocals nicely. With Walling and Lee holding down the bottom, James adds in just the right amount of lead guitar to make this track my favorite on the release. James also shines with a melodic guitar solo on Danger Zone, a definite radio choice for the release and one that should gather solid attention. Callahan really gets in the slot on Don't Tread On Me with a funky bottom by James, and perfect backing vocals by Holloway. A strong weave of James on guitar, Ken Ulansey on sax and Jankowski on horns make this track another favorite. Wrapping the release is blues rocker, Anytime You Want with it's shuffle rhythm and guitar vamp. This is a real enjoyable release for a seasoned vet.
