Amazing review of HANDSOME JACK “Everything’s Gonna be Alright” from ELMORE MAGAZINE

Hailing from Lockport, New York, the trio’s latest yield of slow-burning, swampy blues and warm, soulful boogie rock points to a “deep in the heart of Dixie” upbringing, but Handsome Jack is an East Coast band through and through. Their confident swagger is a dead giveaway. – Peter Lindblad / ELMORE MAGAZINE

Great review of JACK LEE “Bigger Than Life” from ELMORE MAGAZINE

While he hits his stride throughout, the power ballad ”The Girl in the Picture” and the purposeful “Breaking Into My Heart” inject depth and diversity into his singular stance. Skilled songwriters have been rock ‘n’ roll’s secret weapon since the beginning, so credit Jack Lee with continuing in that hallowed tradition. – Lee Zimmerman / […]

Listen to JACK LEE’S “I’m Gonna Have Fun” via ELMORE MAGAZINE

Elmore is excited to premiere a track from the anthology, Jack Lee’s infectious, rabble-rousing gem, “I’m Gonna Have Fun.” Ramones-like in its rhythmic intensity and simple, shoutable lyrics, it’s a care-free mantra for the hard-partying, rebellious kids of any generation. “I’m gonna have fun no matter what I gotta do/no matter how drunk I gotta […]

ELMORE MAGAZINE : JAMES LEG Unleashes Reckless, Rock ‘N Roll Fury on “Human Lawn Dart”

In the Black Diamond Heavies, the Immortal Lee County Killers, the Cut In The Hill Gang, he was John Wesley Myers. Now, you can lose the formality and call him- simply- James Leg, a moniker for a sneering, whiskey fueled, son-of-a-preacher, punk rocker of a long gone order. Barely off the heels of his 2015 […]

Hollis Brown Premieres a California Country-Rock Track, “Cluster of Pearls” It’s a shuffling, heartbroken California-country anthem spruced up by vibrant, fuzzed-out slide guitar. Montali’s wounded warble is sure to strain the heartstrings of listeners, forcing them to croon and sway along, feeling every emotion he’s expressing in the track as he sings “we were young… […]

Great review of LEFT LANE CRUISER “Beck In Black” from ELMORE Magazine

Six previously unreleased songs are stuffed into a collection originally released for Record Store Day as an exclusive metallic gold vinyl pressing. But, Beck in Black doesn’t need such fancy window dressing. Not with guitarist and vocalist Freddy J IV exercising his God-given right to fire off blasts of wicked, distorted riffs at will – […]

SULFUR CITY reviewed in ELMORE Magazine

A simmering, humid swamp of keyboards, rough-and-tumble guitars and rumbling bass and drums backs the powerhouse, blue-collar voice of Paradis, who scratches the electric washboard until her fingers bleed and belts out stirring anthems for the downtrodden on the lusty, smoking-hot Talking Loud. Invoking the spirit of Janis Joplin, Paradis actually sounds more like a […]

Nice KING MUD review in Elmore Magazine

Sometimes, great things come out of random collaboration. King Mud collaborated with Van Campbell from The Black Diamond Heavies and Freddy J IV from Left Lane Cruise to create Victory Motel Sessions. They joined together in LA, California for what’s described as a “marathon jam” that produced to some serious, rich hard blues. Radio Moscow’s […]
