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!

The LH Express - Painting Stars - New Release Review


I just had the opportunity to review the most recent release, Painting Stars, from The LH Express (formerly The Lucas Haneman Express) and it's energetic. Opening with Getaway, with it's country rock feel, shows Lucas Haneman up front on vocal and guitar with Megan Laurence on vocal, and Martin Newman on bass and Valera Negovora on drums and percussion. Powerful vocal duet really gives this track a nice push and Negovora's potent drumming really kicks it up a notch. Bluesy, Being Strong, features Laurence with rich vocal lead and one of the most powerful tracks on the release. A cool, rock bottom and firm bass by Newman makes this one of my favorite tracks on the release and Haneman steps up with a particularly soulful guitar solo. Very nice. Funky rocker, When I'm With Her, has a strong guitar riff and Haneman and Laurence's interplay vocally makes this my choice for radio track. Very cool. Rising From The Dead digs deeper into blues rock with a lightly salted back beat. Haneman's lead vocals are great and I really like the boost by Newman with the tight drum work of Negovora. This is another track with a strong melody and real radio potential. Wrapping the release is title track, Painting Stars, with light percussion and bass under Laurence's lead vocal and Haneman on slide. A country rock beat and a solid melody, is a fitting closer to this solid release.
