"Review of Thanks For Playing (2004)"

reviewed by Annette Warner

Just when I thought I was sick of Piece of My Heart covers…along comes Mary Letchworth with a low growl reminiscent of all the low-growling female greats, but she still holds her own weight. I couldn’t help but hear some Chris Isaac influences musically and it was a wonderful mix. Nice Job! - gogirlsmusic

What a tight band! The guitar playing is excellent and the songs are very well crafted. They create a style all in their own. Mary has a great vocal range and her ability to “move” with the music makes it all even more cool to listen to! - gogirlsmusic

SOCIETY'S CHILD is a band from California, USA and they present us their debut album here. It contains twelve rock songs with a total time of fifty minutes. The band consists of Mary Letchworth on lead guitar, Steve Langston on bass, Mark Randall on rhythm guitar and Tess Jackson on drums. Steve recently left the band, and at the moment
the band is holding auditions for a new bass player. The band was formed in November 1996 and I think their music would be perfect to listen to, while driving on the Route 66. I think that 'rock' would be the best way to describe it.
Rock with a lot of feeling and passion. Music that comes from the heart. Songs that would be even suitable for radio airplay in some cases. Although not all of the songs are that strong in my opinion, but hey you can't have
it all. For example "Disillusioned" is not my cup of tea, but the average quality of the songs is good. "No Mystery" is a very cool opener, but I also liked "No Time For Love","Desire" and "Early Morning", which has a great rhythm. I am really curious what the second CD of this band will sound like. The information, that I have here, tells me that there are going to be two cover tracks on this album, whereas "Tempting Fate" contains only self-penned songs.
These covers will be "Eleanor Rigby" (THE BEATLES; Who remembers the version of ETHEL THE FROG may raise their hands right now) and "Piece Of My Heart (JANIS JOPLIN; I think that the same hands will appear, when I ask who knows the version of LIONSHEART of this classic rock song). If you like to hear a good solid rock CD, then SOCIETY'S CHILDs "Tempting Fate" might be something for you. - metal maidens

Feeling a bit camera shy


Mary Letchworth and Tess Jackson began their musical partnership in Feb. 1995 and formed Society's Child in Nov. 1996. 'Guitar powered, melody driven rock songs' describes the music written by Letchworth & Jackson. The songs begin with a solid foundation of hard rock & blues, and occasionally explore other styles such as country and funk. Layered with emotional lyrics and infectious melodies, this duo have an amazing blend of contrasting vocal styles which harmonize beautifully and captivate audiences. Critics have said Society’s Child has "that distinctive Bay Area Sound” and is reminiscent of Jefferson Airplane, Janis Joplin, Heart and Fleetwood Mac.
