Album Review : Jack J Hutchinson – Who Feeds The Wolf?

Review by Peter Coates – www.facebook.com/InsideEdgePhotography

From the opening riff of Justified you get the feeling that what is about to burst through the speakers could be something special. When the Hammond organ and the vocals kick in, the tingles start to run up your spine, and then the middle-eight break hits you like a sledgehammer before the first of many ripping solos puts the icing on the cake. There is so much depth and complexity in the backing vocal harmonies and the underlying melodies that the listener is pulled in deep, and is immersed in the layers.

The return visit to Australia from this dynamic pair of West Virginian country-rock guitarists stemmed from their eye-opening appearance at CMC Rocks 2018, when the big festival crowds were blown away by the songs, the delivery, and the infectious stage-presence of Donnie and Chris, and their talented band members.

Album Review : KIRK FLETCHER – HOLD ON

Review by Peter Coates – www.facebook.com/InsideEdgePhotography

KIRK FLETCHER – HOLD ON

Another new name to me from the big wide world of the blues, and another cracking example of the quality of blues guitarists out there today – with a handful of solo albums behind him, as well as three years in The Fabulous Thunderbirds, Kirk Fletcher has one of the more soulful voices, twinned with a guitar style that brings to mind the likes of Carlos Santana, Gary Moore, Joe Bonamassa, Eric Clapton, Gary Clarke Jr and Eric Gales to name just a few!

The Road Hammers at Racehorse Hotel, Ipswich – 2 May 2019
Photographer: Peter Coates

It is not that often that we get the chance to see a cult Canadian country-rock band in Australia, so when they arrange a couple of random sideshows after their Winton Way Out West appearance, it seemed sensible to get to see one of them at least – The Road Hammers were over here a few years ago for CMC Rocks and left a pretty hot reputation behind.

Little Steven and the Disciples Of Soul at Enmore Theatre, Sydney – 25 April 2019
Review and photos by Peter Coates – www.facebook.com/InsideEdgePhotography

I was probably expecting a more Springsteen-derived set based on my less than comprehensive knowledge of the Little Steven back-catalogue – knowing the songwriting link with Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes which also sits within that Jersey Shore guitar-based soulful blues/rock arena.

Introducing Nashville at The Factory Theatre, Sydney – 21st March 2019

A four-artist bill featuring some of North America’s most exciting established and up-and-coming artists – Brandy Clark, Devin Dawson, Lindsay Ell and Tenille Townes have embarked on a unique tour following their CMC Rocks appearances, in a totally different style and format to what many Country Music fans would be used to. Designed to introduce current artists from Nashville to music fans around the world, this two-hour seated show presented the artists on stage together, in a rare stripped-back environment, mirroring a quintessential Nashville “writers round”, we saw the four, all of whom are on their first trip Down Under, take turns to introduce their songs, sharing the stories behind the tracks, along with some fascinating personal life and career experiences.

Live Review : Luke Combs + Ashley McBryde at The Palais, Melbourne – 13 March 2019

Review and photos by Peter Coates

Ashley McBryde is on her first trip Down Under, appearing at CMC Rocks this weekend, and her band kicked off with a solid blues rock riff and the lady herself wandered out guitar, slung low and kicked into the opening song Livin’ Next to Leroy.

British blues rock guitarist Kris Barras is just winding up a UK club tour, promoting his second album The Divine And Dirty, playing to a run of sold out venues around the country, including The Garage in North London, and The Haunt in Brighton, where we caught up with him for a quick chat before the show there.
