Lester is a West Coast-based duo featuring the talents of brothers Fred and Adrian Lester. This marks their disc debut… and country radio programmers better give it some decent airplay, otherwise they might be looking at a visit by Lester – and that might not be such a good thing … the brothers toiled for several years on the U.S. Pro Wrestling circuit… Fred was billed as “The Texas Outlaw” and Adrian was “Thunder Warrior”. And, oh yea, these guys are still in great shape… so radio, ya better start spinning that music!!

Not surprisingly there is a lot of energy in Lester’s music, and the album quickly takes on a country/rock feel with tunes like We’re All Here (‘Cause We Ain’t All There), Ain’t No Drunk Enough, You Got What Gets Me, and Diezel Countrified (I’m not the guy who’s gonna tell Lester how to spell Diesel).

The album’s first single release to radio is the power ballad Let Me Love You, a tune penned by award-winning Nashville writer Craig Wiseman. Other items here that standout include the hurtin’ tune I’d Give Anything; a mid-tempo, fun-times effort in Surprise Surprise, a really strong ballad in Things I Couldn’t Change, one of three songs on the album co-written by Canadian Daryl Burgess. Listen also for the album’s title track, Day One, which is given a Jerry Reed feel, thanks to some driving guitar work, and some hook-filled lyrics.

There are a couple of clunkers here too, but we won’t elaborate… your CMN Record Reviewer doesn’t need a visit from these guys either.

Day One was produced by Tom McKillip at studios in and round Vancouver, utilizing a key core of West Coast musicians.
