I was at a Royal Southern Brotherhood gig last night (Under the Bridge, London, 25/9/13). We hadn't even been alerted to the likelihood of a 'support' act, and when a diminutive (and very attractive) blonde ambled on stage just by herself with her guitar, it took a while for everyone in the audience to become transfixed. A very SHORT while, actually, about 30 seconds at most. She is an amazing talent, and to cut a long story short, I went home after an excellent gig (RSB were superb, by the way, and Samantha joined them on stage for the encores) proudly clutching a signed copy of her new album. Listening to it this afternoon for the first time, I'm extremely impressed.
24 hours ago I hadn't heard of this lass from Kansas City, now I am a committed fan. If like me you enjoy a bit of good ole' dirty southern blues-rock, you can't go wrong if you buy this album. Five stars for guts, raunchy sounds, and good-time rock 'n roll. Zito has captured her character and incredibly powerful guitar playing beautifully with his studio production of this collection of marvellous songs.
This is the real McCoy. The girl has b*lls, big time.
On first listen: 'Kick Around', 'Go to Hell' and the title track initially stand out for me. But no doubt with the many listens this album will get I will discover more delights.
