Katie Knipp-Take It With You Review

“Ya Make It So Hard To Sing The Blues,” is a barnstormer, coming in with some roaring vocals, the story is weaved, and the good times are welcomed in with the slide and the beat, welcome to the journey. “I Don’t Sing For You,” is Zeppelin mixed with Janis, and boy does it beat the listener down and build them back up again. This is perfection. “Letters,” slow and reflective. The guitars drone, and the vocals weave the story again, the protagonist is stuck and the feelings are coming out. “Metro In Paris,” old fashioned shuffle, with that rag time feel, brilliantly executed. “I Will Stick Around,” the anthem of the album, a belter on a piano with soaring vocals.

“Come Back,” is another barnstormer, of old school blues, winding its way down and bringing it back up, and then dancing through the melodies. “Get Outta My Dream,” is another interesting take, weaving through the fields and bringing some serious energy to the fore. “Santa Cruz Blues,” is old time blues as it was meant to be, filled with distorted rhythms and heartbreak galore. “Another Round,” a good old fashioned drinking song and one that is sure to get people moving when performed live. “Last Man Out,” finishes things off nicely, with some old school bluesy melodies.

The album is out on 7th November.
