Review by Paul Monkhouse for MPM
This is blues. So authentic, so gritty and so on point that one listen will transport you immediately to one of the finest bars in downtown Chicago.
Joanna Connor has a formidable reputation as one of THE best guitar players, not just in the Windy City but around the world.
Producers Joe Bonamassa and Josh Smith have captured lightning in a bottle and managed to bring the raw and ridiculously exciting sound of Connor in full flight here and it’s a heads-down rockabilly slide rush.
This is raw rock ‘n’ roll with more sass and attitude in four minutes than most bands achieve in a dozen lifetimes.
With a voice that’s soaked in experience and soul, matched with some absolutely dazzling fretwork, this is like the biggest hit of caffeine you’ve ever had. Supercharged and honest, Joanna Connor is the Real Deal.
