Music You Don't Know You Like Yet

KELLEY HUNT

GRAVITY LOVES YOU

2011-02-13

Kansas blues women Kelley Hunt continues to grow and establish herself as one of the finest female vocalists in the industry today. On this her fifth release Kelley crafts her songs as a writer and vocalist and surrounds herself with an all-star band who have worked with the likes of Van Morrison, Johnny Cash, Shelby Lynne and her friend Delbert McClinton. It will be easy for listeners to make comparisons to blues great Rory Block on tracks like "These Are The Days" and "Music Is The Thread". On some of the more up-tempo tracks such as "Too Much History" Kelley shadows some of Susan Tedeschi finest work. "I'm Ready" is a full throttle gospel track that will bring you right to your feet shouting Halleluiah I'm Ready. "When The Deal Comes Down" is a captivating track that features Kelley on piano and a vocal performance that is so good it is almost haunting. "Shake It Off Right Away" has a boggie back beat featuring Kelley's fingers heating up the ivories in the way that were prominent on her first two releases. Gravity Loves You showcases an artist who has grown into one of the best blues performers today. Reviewed By: Gregg Saur
