TA DAH!!! The long awaited third offering from the new and improved Coyote Kings (now w/Mush), "Move" is out now! It's so brand new that not all of the reviews are in, but here's what some have to say about it...
"They say third time's a charm & "Move," the third offering from Coyote Kings & first with Michelle "Mush" Morgan, is definitely charmed. That "Rockin' Blues & Bluesy Rock ~ Smokin' Hot!" band from Walla Walla has outdone themselves with this stunner. When you take the writing skills of Robin Barrett & Curtis Johnson, the solid playing of Rob, Curtis, Tim, & Mike & add Mush Morgan's amazing vocals to the mix, the result is downright world-class.
From the rollicking barrel-house groove of "Wanna Come Home," to the tough, driving, lustful moans of "Lil Sumpmm Sumpmm," to the ode to the weekend warrior "Think It's The Good Life," & the ultimate slide guitar propelled driving song, "Blacktop Never Stop," Barrett shows why he's regarded as one of the top Blues & Roots writers currently making music.
Curtis "Rocket" Johnson surprises us with his superbly soulful vocals and writing, in his two offerings, the straight-up power Blues "Upside Down Inside Out" & "Downtown." How can a song have a tough Texas groove and feel good, almost euphoric dreaminess at the same time? Not sure, but "Downtown" delivers this amazing quality. You'll wish it went on for hours. I think you'll agree that it's about time Mr Johnson "stepped out from behind the drums!"
And now Mush Morgan... Coyote Kings' "Queen of Blue-eyed Soul," Michelle "Mush" Morgan, shows her jaw-dropping vocal skills on seven songs on Move; The heart-wrenching melodrama "Only Love I Know," the funk-in-your-face come-on "All Tangled Up," her sultry infatuation on "Drive Me," and powerful singing on "Everything Changes," along with her fantastic cover of "Get Ready," are a the icing on the cake that is Coyote Kings w/Mush Morgan's "Move."
It's rare these days when every song on an album is great, but... every song on Move is... well... great! Gonna be hard to pick a favorite... they're all awesome." ~ anonymous
"The CD ROCKS! In fact the WWBS liked it so much we sent it to the International Blues Challenge for Best Self-Produced CD!" ~ Patty Keys, President, Walla Walla Blues Society.
"So, lucky me, I got a pre-release CD & it is THE BEST!!!!! I danced my ass off for an hour! Can't stop listening to this awesome CD. Curtis doin' Downtown is sexy, Mush singing All Tangled Up, Only Love I Know & Everything Changes...well, talk about HOT!!! Robin has done an amazing job writing & recording, Mondo Mike & Tim Dallas are at their best with guitars in hand. This CD sounds like they are LIVE in your house! I love you all and thank you so much for your fantastic music!" ~ S. Clarke, Our dear friend & super fan.
