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.
