Superlatives simply prevail here. Stunning debut album of great blues with strong Americana and gutsy down and dirty Rock tinges from the JRHB. From LA, this hugely talented Californian trio – only a trio, seems unbelievable with this sound – comprises only Tony Jack Grigsby on Bass – the Jack of the band – Jim Roberts on guitar and vocals, and Mike Harvey on Drums.

Material ranges from the old traditional US standard, ‚Amazing Grace‘, here cooked in a refreshingly different slippery, slide sauce, to another nine self-written songs with a great groove going throughout. This is a band that clearly knows its way around the music with a capacity to produce material of enormous quality.
If anything, the most surprising thing about this outfit is probably – why haven‘t we heard of them before now?! Genuinely amazing debut from a truly talented US band. Can‘t wait to hear their next effort. Onward and upwards, I reckon.
