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!

VizzTone Label Group artist: Paul DesLauriers Band - Bounce - New Release review

I just had the opportunity to review the most recent release, Bounce, from the Paul DesLauiers Band and it's a cool rock release with deep roots in the blues. Opening with It's All on You, a swaggering track featuring DesLauiers on lead guitar and vocal with Alec McElcheran on bass and Sam Harrisson on drums. This is a really nice opener with DesLauriers' slide playing having the fat resonance of Jimmy Page. Very nice. On Take Me To The Brink, DesLauriers revs it up with a "Train Train" like rhythm and hot hot chicken pickin style. Excellent! With a rocking funky beat, Driving Me Insane has a great back beat and strong melody. I think that anyone who likes the basic sound of Led Zep would really like this. With a bit more Hendrix like bite but remaining blues based, Picked a Bad Day is a strong rocker featuring the guitar work of DesLauriers and JP Soars. Hi intensity shuffle, Feeling All Kinds of Good, is one of my favorite tracks on the release with strong rhythm drive from Harrisson and quick fingered rock riffs by DesLauriers. Very cool. Wrapping the release is slow blues ballad, Waiting on You with it's strong melody and clocking in over 10 and a half minutes gives DesLauriers a great opportunity to push the band  to flaming hot with excellent contemporary blues riffs, snappy drumming from Harrisson and McElcheran's firm hand at bass. Excellent closer.

Big Toe Productions artist: Paul DesLauriers Band - Relentless - New release review

I just had the opportunity to review the newest release, Relentless, from the Paul DesLauriers Band and it is relentless! Opening with Stewtro Rock, a hard driving rocker with a heavy bass line, this track shows that modern rockers are still making great music and with the partnership of Greg Morency on bass and Sam Harrison on drums, DesLauiers leads the way on lead vocal and guitar. Very nice! Boogie fused, I'm Your Man had eased up on the throttle a little but with intense work on guitar, drums and bass, this track is a serious entry. I really like it. Ten Feet Tall has a bit of arena feel to it with but with cool guitar riffs and raspy vocals, this track is a solid radio player. Another strong blues entry, Still Under My Skin has great guitar tones and a swampy feel reminding me of Jim Suhler. Paul really twists the guitar on this track and with rock solid bottom by Morency and Harrison, this may be one of my favorites on the release. Super. Funky blues number, Up In The Air has a rally swampy feel with a subdues slide riff under the melody. DesLauriers has some of the swagger of Ronnie VanZandt with great drums and bass kick. Raspy slide work by Paul really kicks this track up a few levels. Very nice. We Just Might is another driving rocker with real oomph. DesLauriers kicks out the stops on his guitar solos and another solid radio rocker. Blues ballad, If I Still Had You, is a soulful track with highly expressive guitar soloing. Easily the most powerful track on the release. Gonna Make You Move is a funky pop track with a jangly cow bell and smoking drum riffs. Also included is a more subtle Gonna Make You Move with just a bit more dynamics. This is a cool rocker and one to check out.
