Gary Hoey 'Dust and Bones'

I must be honest in that I have not always been a big follower of Gary Hoey’s…that is not a judgement, but simply that his work never really broke through my circle of musical influences. With his release of ‘Dust and Bones’ my attention and attitude might very well need a shift of focus. While some CD releases might not knock your socks off and may need time to grow on you, upon first listen, ‘Dust and Bones’ caught my ears and attention immediately with a solid rendition ‘Boxcar Blues’ which is followed immediately with one of my favorite tunes on this release ‘Who’s Your Daddy’ a rollicking and contemporary jump blues number whose ‘Who’s your daddy’ refrain is the hook that will get the audience singing along and you attempting to cover it with your own band. ‘Born to Love You’, a blues rock number allows Gary Hoey to emulate ZZ Tops’ Billy Gibbons vocals while showing off his wah wah guitar chops against a metronomic back beat. ‘Steamroller Blues’, a tribute to the late Johnny Winter brings Gary Hoey’s slide guitar prowess to the forefront solidly supported by the driving train beat. Singer Lita Ford is a guest vocalist on ‘Coming Home’, where both Gary Hoey and Lita Ford exchange vocal turns creating a country blues vibe whose slower tempo fits in just right at this point of the CD. As a whole, the entire CD is very well worth multiple listens and has now been on my iPod for several weeks. A great mx of excellent tunes, some outstanding musicality and perfect mix of tempos and complimentary/contrasting numbers.

Hope this has been helpful.
Thanks for reading
