It’s About Time

Susan Williams & Wright Groove Band

Susan Williams & Wright Groove 2019

Review by David Bowling


Susan Williams is a veteran vocalist/songwriter/bassist who fronts the Wright Grove Band. They have now released their debut album titled It’s About Time.

Williams and her band are a blues band with a twist. She is a cocomposer who has written 10 of the 11 tracks. She also has an excellent, husky voice that fits a blues style well. The twist is their use of two basses, which gives the music a funky element.

Lead bassist Darryl Wright, Guitarist Mike Gallemore, drummer Rob Davis, and on 6 tracks, keyboardist Michael Cruse fuse their rhythms with classic blues. Their unique approach makes for an interesting listen.

It’s About Time is a blues album that travels a different road and is well-worth exploring.
