Morning Star – S/T
(Jack Dog Records – 2017)
Female fronted Blues & Southern Rock band from Austin, Texas, USA who present their self-titled album.
They are made up of Tasmin 'Morningstar' McCoy on vocals; husband, Tim McCoy on Guitar; David Efries on Bass and Reed Hoffman taking care of drums. Highlights include the country of 'Learning To Breath'; the Honky Tonkin' 'Made To Break'; the haunting 'Undone'; 'Last 5 Miles' with its wailing solo.
Okay but the vocals are so samey in every song and need more colour and energy to them. Hope the second album is a lot better on this front.
