Do we really need another blues-based guitar-slinging singer from Texas? Hell, if they can play this good, why not? Neal Black plays a meaty, gristle-choked guitar and sings like the Marlboro Man at the end of a long day.He's somewhere between the Allman Brothers, Howlin' Wolf and Merle Haggard but with a darker disposition than any of them.

Neal Black is a refreshing change as he chops and channels the standard Blues Rock format into a souped up Hendrix meets Johnny Winter. As a vocalist Black sounds like a white Howling Wolf or a black Tom Waits “

With vocals smooth as gravel in a meat grinder and bad-to-the-bone guitar this isn't for weak hearts. If you like your boogie 'n' blues raw and back-alley, you'll wear this one out !!
Cradle of the blues, the U.S. has a never failing reserve of talented artists. They come out of nowhere and their first hit is usually a masterpiece. For example, Neal Black's new release : IT'S A MUST!
