Honey For My Queen

The Josh Garrett Band

Josh Garrett Music 2015

Review by David Bowling


Josh Garrett and his band represent all that is good about modern day blues. He combines scintillating guitar licks, gritty vocals, deep rhythms, and incisive lyrics. It all adds up to a contemporary approach to the classic blues of the Delta.

“Memphis” just meanders along with a series of subtle grooves, while “Goodnight Goodnight” is a primitive track that features only his slide guitar and harp. “Easy Chair” and “Same Boat” are both bright blasts of blues.

Garrett released his first album at the age of 24 and has honed his approach and sound to the point that one now finds a mature and sure musician. Honey For My Queen is a good experience for any blues aficionado.
