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!

Jolani Music Group artist: Nalani Rothrock - The Rock House Sessions (extended cut) - New Release Review

 I just had the opportunity to review the most recent release, The Rock House Sessions (extended cut), from Nalani Rothrock and it's a blend of pop, rock and blues with a definite radio target. Opening with bluesy, Every Time I Close My Eyes, Nalani Rothrock shows her excellent vocal skills and smooth delivery. With Joshua Lamkin on guitar, Kevin McKendree on keys, Steve Mackey on bass, Kenneth Blevins on drums, and backing vocals by Nicole Boggs and Jonell Mosser. Excellent radio track. R&B flavored, Hold On, has a cool vamp and smooth backing behind Rothrock's vivid vocal delivery. Jackie Wilson adds warm backing vocals and McKendree and Lynn Williams firm up the track. Very nice.  Latin rhythm permeates Midnight, a real nice track with a sweet melody and a great showcase for Rothrock's vocal work. A cool stylistic Tex Mex guitar solo by Lamkin and percussion by Bryan Brock elevates this track and makes it another of my  favorites on the release. Lamkin pulls out the slide on Try, a New Orleans flavored blues with a lot of pop sauce. Rothrock just lights on the melody and her voice is perfect with just the right touch of backing guitar, keys and drums making this another really strong entry. Wrapping the release is Hey Little Bird, a light pop, country blues track with a sweet melody and easy guitar and drums back. Warm harmonies and rich lead makes this an excellent closer for a solid release.
