Review by Paul Monkhouse for MPM
Soul. You’ve either got it or you haven’t. Without any doubt Rebecca Downes has it by the bucketload, the Midlander possessing the sort of pipes that could charm the birds from the trees or make a drill sergeant cry.
When Downes met her musical partner in crime, Steve Birkett, the combination of her stunning voice and his skill with any instrument he picks up led the two to make material that almost defies superlatives as critical acclaim was showered down in a constant torrent.
New single ‘Blues For Us’ is a classic example of exactly why the pairing is so powerful, a sultry love song that touches parts of your heart you never knew you had, with a sheen of sophistication over some real grit. Prepare to be helplessly put under their spell.
