CD Review: Kelly Richey - Carry The Light

Kelly Richey - Carry The Light

2008, Sweet Lucy Records

Kelly Richey’s guitar playing has been compared to the likes of Jimi Hendrix and Stevie Ray Vaughan. Kelly Richey and her band have also earned a reputation for unforgettable, high energy shows. Her latest release, Carry The Light carries on the sound that Richey is known for.

Carry The Light opens with Leave The Blues Behind, a tasty blues rocker that serves as a great introduction to Kelly Richey for those who have not heard her before. I Want You is another strong entry, sounding like something that might have come from an old Led Zeppelin album. I also particularly enjoyed Run Like Hell and Carry The Light. The highlight of Carry The Light is No More Lies. Richey sounds a bit like Melissa Etheridge on this song, which rocks like nobody's business.

Carry The Light is a great entry in the Blues/Rock universe. Kelly Richey has created a sonic pleasure that should endure the passage of time and provide several crowd pleasers to her live performances for years to come.

Rating: 3.5 Stars (Out of 5)
