Donna Dunne – Beale
A rich rhythm and blues texture comes across that signals the intent as much as it creates a wonderful tune. The stylish running brings a sense of rackabilly but it is also marked out by the way the blues generates the intended impact. Firing up “kicks” is the Latin tint in the sound. It adds a hard side to it that you feel. The deep way that the guitar is angled in gives it a lush Tex-Mex beat that stirs it eloquently, but there is also a lot to admire in how it excites you as it plays.
An endearing track follows called “Blue Skies”. Handsomely filling out as it plays there is a steadfastness to it that sees it all fall clearly into place. The partial way that it is delivered also denotes an artist with a lot of promise musically. A cover of “Lucille” by LITTLE RICHARD seems to undermine the rockabilly influences that we have come to pick up from her live sets. Here it finds a suitable place as an inclusion on an EP.
