Janey; Bryce: Delta Road

Man, this is deep. Deep in authenticity, deep in the pocket and steeped deep in the blues. If it's a true, from the heart serving of guitar driven, groove drippin' goodness you seek, then take a trip down the Delta Road. That's where you'll find guitarist and singer Bryce Janey and his natural, utterly believable grinding good times and heartfelt cries of anguish. Unlike many bluesters, Janey tosses away the need for flash and fluff, his dark, lived in voice and the ability to wring true emotion from his fretboard, more than enough to get his message across and have you fully onboard.

Having bassist Dan "DJ" Johnson and drummer Eric Dougles alongside him allows Janey to take a walk in all directions, a bending solo infusing "This Old Guitar", a sweet Hendrix shimmy brought to life in a more traditional way through "Feel Like A Stranger". However that a track like "Shake The Walls (With Foot Stompin' Music)" can engage so organically, proves why that no matter what fads, genres and technology flits past, the blues stays the course, true to itself and unwavering in what its strengths (great songs, passionate performances, heart on sleeve lyrics) really are. There are no airs and graces in this music and neither are there in "Time Doesn't Wait", "Same Old Thang" or the classy Rory Gallagher cover "Lonesome Highway"; an album which always feels as though it is a labour of love, delivering riff after riff, solo after solo and beat after beat of the music Bryce and his band live for. Nothing is forced, with every note being played for the song and a real sense of understanding of what makes Delta Road the show of strength it is, and when you can call on the mid paced chugger of "Better Off With The Blues" (now there's an apt song title!), or the bass rumble and guitar tumble of "World Of Trouble" there's simply no let up in the quality of what's on offer. A gritty cover of the Robert Johnson classic "Hellhound On My Trail" closes the album out in authentic style and while what's come before may not be quite as stripped back, it is an indicator of where Bryce Janey's Delta Road originates from and where it calls home.
