Paul Sherry
'To the Bitter End'
Blues Matters Publication

It's not often that I get bowled over by a new album- but this is one of those rare exceptions. 'To The Bitter End' (2007)is a flawless debut album. The influences on the album are clear,: Stevie Ray Vaughan, Robben Ford, Rory Gallagher and Gary Moore. The Irish influence cannot be overlooked as this album has the hallmarks of the aforementioned Irish virtuosos. The song writing is very strong and is complimented by some tremendous guitar playing and effective throaty vocals. The opening song 'We Don't Stand a Chance' sets the tone for the album: it's a foot-tapping blues rocker. 'Stick with me to the End', 'Just Wondering' and the imaginative instrumental 'Anda', could have been on a Stevie Ray Vaughan album and the guitar work clearly shows this influence. 'Deeper' has a laid back feel to it and would not be amiss on the USA AOR channels. My favourite is the relaxed funk blues of 'Just Wondering', it grooves beautifully and has a superb bit of guitar work in the mid section. There is no filler on this 10 track album which clocks in at just 34 minutes and certainly leaves you wanting more. This album has been constant on my Ipod and I cannot give it a higher compliment than that: a stonker! - Blues Matters
