Boo Hoo Hoo travels from the juke-joint jump blues rockabilly of its title track and the Delta swamp of “Running,” with a chugging Creedence beat, to "Love Is Madness" with a Motown bass line and a Dusty Springfield “Spooky” vibe. Other highlights include a cover of Nina Simone’s version of Nat Adderley / Oscar Brown Jr.'s “Work Song”, the soaring, affirmative gospel revival of “Rise Up,” the sensuous plaint of “If Anything” and the feedback-charged “Devil on My Back,” a band composition that features Black Mountain's Matt Camirand.
No Sinner’s music is about the clash between the sacred and the profane, the preacher and the devil, the sins of Saturday night at the local watering hole being washed away in the redemption of Sunday morning in church; in short, the very contradiction at the heart of rock ’n’ roll.

The bluesy rock'n'roll music provides a very effective vehicle for the big story here, which is of course Colleen Rennision's voice, a husky Joplinesque power house that can kill a man at 100 paces. Or maybe not but you get the idea.
Best song on the album is Devil On My Back, a bit Black Keys at first but swells into something quite wonderful.
Its not all at that standard however, a few of the songs give you the feeling that they are perhaps unfinished. But overall this is a good record.
The worst thing is the cover, a cheap photo which is sexist. I have no idea why the band allowed it. Were they that desperate for a deal? But that is of course a lot better thing to say about a record than saying the best thing about it is the cover.
I could go through all of the tracks (there are sadly only 9) and all offer something - in fact it is a quite varied album. Not all are great but 'Devil On My Back' is another highlight. I really like this album but can't quite bring myself to give it 5 stars. I wonder what they would be like live ? Long way to Canada to find out !
The music - the EP kicks off with Boo Hoo Hoo , a real foot stomper that revisits the 60's and 70's in one song . Love is a madness is the perfect choice for a single - slow sultry start with a great bass line and fantastic vocals . Runnin ' is upbeat and has some fine guitar and solo from Mr Campbell . If anything is slow blues track with exceptional vocals from Colleen and we have the Nina Simone cover " work song " , which add layers to the original . That'll be the day is vocal and guitar only , and is one of the EP's highlights . Rise up my favourite track just builds and builds into a absolute classic , it's a slow burner , but once it hits it peak it's nothing short of phenomenal ! . Devil on my back has a mighty guitar riff to it , and is usually the set opener . And then we get too September Moon the last track , it's a great song lyrically and had to be the closer to a set of fine tunes - quick mention to , to Drummer Ian Browne who keeps tempo throughout wonderfully . To sum up - this EP is superb , cannot wait for the full length cd .
It shows in the freshness. First three track as, for me okay, but I really liked the rest of the stuff. I would certainly recommend this to blues fans.
a brilliant future in the business. I would recommend the band to all listeners of quality crafted music and beware of the strong and stirring vocals of the female lead...
I'm not always a fan of female lead vocalists in rock bands, (don't mean to sound sexist), but sometimes a powerful delivery results in ear drum shattering screams. That is not the case here, Colleen Rennison is the star. Her gritty voice is perfect, sometimes it's bluesy sometimes soulful, never over the top. I do think that the guitar playing is adequate at best, but sometimes less is more as they say and these songs do not require extended guitar solos. At nine songs the album is on the short side, I would have liked another couple, but there is great potential here and I look forward to their next release.

Little to add to what has been written previously. Other than say another exciting new talent. Where the best is yet to come.
Yet to buy a copy of her new solo album. Read more
