DEBUT ALBUM REVIEWS
You maybe do a double take when “Faithful Kate”, the first track on the band of the same name’s debut album, kicks into an instant early 1970’s vibe. Lead singer Lee Brinn’s voice bears an uncanny resemblance to Face’s era Rod Stewart, Ian Lloyd of Stories (“Brother Louis”) and Black Crowes’ Chris Robinson. “Classic” is an exceptionally well-craft rock album with a few country rock traits. Just when you thought they don’t make music like that anymore, Faithful Kate delivers a classic rock gem. Add guest lead guitarist Larry Berwald’s sizzlin’ guitar work, lots of Hammond B3 organ, and the all important high-end backing vocals and you’ve got a refreshing formula.
Highlights include the slow, soulful “Play Me Home,” “Sippin’ Glass,” the Southern boogie of the rockin’ “Baby Says,” and the very Black Crowes esque, melodically pleasing “August Train.” Rock on. -Jeff Maisey Go to original review
