Very nice southern rock/blues offering from these cats from Klamath Falls, Oregon. Also a nice smattering of rockabilly thrown in for good measure. This five song EP is a rocker and these fellas know how to make some noise! This is a studio album but has the sound and feel of a live performance. The Kings are made up of the following members: Shane Anthony Thornton – Vocals, Guitar, Songwriting, Producer, Engineer, Harmonica; Vic Picks – Acoustic Guitar, Mandolin, Electric Guitar,Banjo, Vocals, Songwriting; Chris Garrett – Drums,Vocals, Acoustic Guitar, Songwriting; Dean Oliver – Bass,Stand Up Bass, Acoustic Guitar, Mandolin.
The first song on this self titled EP is named appropriately, Black Cadillac Kings and it is a rockabilly rocker that makes you want to tap your foot. It’s about being an unapologetic rocker and taking no prisoners. I get the sense that as good as they are on record, they are a live band. This music seems to be loud and full of attitude. That seems t lend itself better to a live performance than an album. Well, I guess the EP will have to do until they come east or I go out west and see these rockers out in Oregon.
Listen to some Black Cadillac Kings
Thanks Harry, we really appreciate the kind words and having us on your blog. Looking forward to rocking near you soon!
