Flyinshoes Review

Welcome to FSR our Roots Music Reviewers & Pod/broadcasters Community

If you haven’t hosted a House Concert yet, please make it a new year’s resolution!

Why not invite your favourite independent musician to play for your friends family and his fans in your front room, I’ll be surprised if he/she won’t show up sometime this year and play for you, let me know about it and if The Medicine Show Radio Moose Mobile is loose is near enough we’ll come and broadcast it too. If you would like to help keep the wheels on the Hub and on The Moose become a patron at

North Carolina ensemble Chatham County Line are a well established, and hugely creative band. This Durham, NC recorded album is their eighth studio record. Sharing The Covers demonstrates how they aren’t slow at coming up with innovative ideas, there was a time when they…

TIFFANY POLLACK & ERIC JOHANSEN – Blues In My Blood (Nola Blue NB 008)

This is a duo out of New Orleans, with Tiffany a noted jazz singer (though you might not guess that from some of the tough performances here) and Eric formerly lead guitarist for Cyrille Neville of The Neville Brothers and zydeco artist Terrance Simien, and they are backed by some top-notch musicians.…

BENNY TURNER AND CASH McCALL – Going Back Home (Nola Blue NB 007)


Two blues veterans get together here; Benny, born in 1939, was bass player for his brother, the illustrious Freddy King, and these days he makes excellent blues albums himself. Singer and guitarist Cash McCall – aka Morris Dollison Jr. – had an R’n’B hit back in 1966 and worked…

Vin Mott – Rogue Hunter (Independent)


Young Vin Mott plays a mean blues harp and sings with a warm and enthusiastic voice on this album, his follow-up to his 2017 debut set, “Quit The Women For The Blues”. He has some good material too, and, with an insight rare in the blues these days, he writes in the CD…

TREVOR B. POWER BAND - Everyday Angel (Independent)


Singer, guitarist and bandleader Trevor is from New Jersey; he received his first guitar for his fifteenth birthday, but only turned to the blues much later when he met Bobby Whitlock (keyboards player with Derek & The Dominoes, and much else, including being the…

Dee Miller Band - Leopard Print Dress (Independent)


Dee has been called “The Duchess Of The Blues” in her native Minneapolis, and here she lives up to that title with a strong, powerful and energetic set of gritty blues and soul. Etta James is obviously a strong influence, as can be heard not only on the sixties rhythm and…

MARTYN JOSEPH - HERE COME THE YOUNG (Pipe Records / Kartel Music Group)

Welsh folk act, singer songwriter Martyn Joseph has long been a favourite. Soon after he first emerged on the folk scene 35 years ago. I happened to catch him a decade or so later when he was part of a show featuring American act Janis Ian, who at the time was making her recoding…

Josh Hartly checking in (and UK EU Dates)

Good day ladies and gentlemen,

Well, it’s cold. Really cold. But we don’t have to dwell on that and instead look forward 50 days to Spring. Right? In the meantime make sure to not leave your pets outside for more than 5 minutes and remember for yourselves, frostbite sucks.

In other looking ahead news we’re wrapping up the plans and arrangements and are looking forward to being back in the…

Here is a treat for fans of the West Coast (San Francisco) late 1970s - 1980s punk scene. Music if it combined numerous elements it was all loud and performed in a hurry. With an odd ballad of sorts…

David Bromberg – The Player: A Retrospective (Floating World FLOATM6382)


Born in Philadelphia, PA in 1945, David Bromberg took up the guitar at the age of 13 and quickly became enamoured of the folk and blues revival scene, taking lessons from no less than Reverend Gary Davis in Greenwich Village in the 60s. He eagerly soaked up blues (acoustic…

R J COMER - ONE LAST KISS ( Growling Moon Records)

Chicago-born singer-songwriter RJ Comer has more than a few real life hard luck stories to share. Now that he’s taken the leap of faith to become a solo recording act, the likelihood is we are set to hear more from him. RJ has taken a good many years to become a fully fledged solo act. It took him almost as…

Paul Nelson – Over Under Through (Riverwide)

Singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Paul Nelson, from New Hampshire, has an eclectic approach on this often moody sounding CD, drawing in country, blues, Americana and roots-rock, as much JJ Cale as it is Tom Waits, and he even throws in a slow-tempo'ed cover of Johnny Cash’s ‘I Walk The Line’ for (very)…
