Music You Don't Know You Like Yet
2014-10-07One listen to this disc and you can be reassured that real blues and soul are alive & kickin in the Motor City. Laura Rain is the center piece of this band, and her vocals range from a bubbly Macey Gray mixed with Joss Stone on steroids. Her band includes Motown tested musicians such as George Friend on guitar who has worked with Robert Gordon & Janiva Magness. Drummer Ron Pangborn spent time with Detroit's Was Not Was & Jill Jack and keyboardist Phil Hale devoted five years with theThornetta Davis band and also worked with Was Not Was & George Clinton. These road tested warriors combine the blues sounds of Albert King with the Soul of Al Green and blend it with a vocalist that will be hard to forget. Whether Laura Rain is seducing you or knocking you out with a power punch this lady deserves your devoted attention. Reviewed By: Gregg Saur
