Their sound is solidly rooted in the a modern blues groove, but spice from various influences really make for a tasty offering from this budding band. Billy Shew, a classically trained guitar player who's been seasoned by life's knocks, offers up some of the finest indy guitar playing you're likely to hear. Backing Billy are three pieces that serve up the groove tight, sexy and right in the pocket. 'I feel like this whole album is about me.' --Clifford, Sound Engineer, ManKave Studios.
