Electric Soul Parade – New Horizon

Electric Soul Parade – New Horizon
Power trios are alive and well. Or maybe it is just that L.A.‘s Electric Soul Parade proves that they never went away to begin with. With the rock grit of legendary power trio Cream, this act seems to create a big sound nudging a nice mid-ground between the soul of the Black Crowes and the blues rock of Govt Mule. So many tracks here flat out blister from the slightly country tinged “Candy Flippin’ Sweet Heart” to the full on rocking assault of “Make Up Your Mind” and the down and dirty blues boogie of “Higher Level.” Vocalist/guitarist Travis Lee Stephenson cooks fiery stews with vocal cords and fingers, possessing a gruff but melodic soulful howl and a seething power with his six-string antics. Behind him, bassist Paul Jones and drummer Phillip Major-Willis unleash a potent rhythm machine. This is a parade you are going to definitely want to experience, it is one helluva ride! – MW
