The New CD from The Johnny Max Band!

JOHNNY MAX BAND - ROADHOUSE SOUL - Pour Soul Records

Blues Matters! - Bridgend, UK

Rocking, rolling roadhouse sounding release from Canada, this is a ten-track album that has some great, driving fretwork and truly top-notch keys that fuel and drive the whole thing along with a nice, deft touch and overall feel. Max’s vocals are finely pitched with some raw edges and a soulful delivery that matches the band’s pulsing push and purpose. Tracks come from the band itself and have themes that touch on politics, the usual love won and lost, and hints of southern soul included. Canada has a rich and vibrant roots and blues music fraternity and following, so this band comes with clear determination and grasp of the soul-end of the music after years of working the scene back home. Although this album is unashamedly southern soul, with a funky Memphis trail, Johnny Max Band has previously been nominated and picked up a number of leading blues awards in North America. In reality, this offering works extremely well, hi-lighting some great guitar and keyboard chops alongside strong, driving and rocking R&B mixed effortlessly together with soul and southern influenced blues.
