Music You Don't Know You Like Yet

Hard Swimmin' Fish

True Believer

2016-11-10

When your influences are Howlin Wolf, and your bass player is studying Victor Wooten you can never go wrong. Vocals and sound are very similar to that of Howlin' Wolf, with times being a little more Jazzy and Funky. I love the beats on several songs, as they really take old school sounds and make them more mainstream. Loved it and added it to the Library for sure. Check out tracks 1, 4, 7, and a cool cover of "Mess Around" as well which is track 11. Beware of the hidden track towards the end, which starts at about 4:20 on track 12.
