CD Review: Uncle Lucius Finds "The Light" While Jamie Lin Wilson Celebrates "Holidays & Wedding Rings"

Texas-based band Uncle Lucius built their fan base the hard way with touring, winning over the curiosity seekers and the music lovers. They will be releasing their fourth album "The Light" on June 9th through Boo Clap Records in association with Thirty Tigers. The new twelve song release begins with the title-song which is a straight southern rocker that finds Uncle Lucius sticking to their roots. Their music gets a little soulful during the "Age Of Reason" then becomes more meaningful during the acoustic build-up of "Taking In The View" about life on the road. Uncle Lucius adds some country twang to "The End of 118" then sets sail down the road with smooth tones of "Wheels In Motion." The moving rhythm-filled "Flood Then Fade Away" and the up-tempo, fun feel of "Someday Is A Far Cry." Uncle Lucius has a load of tour dates along the Midwest and Texas.

American country singer/songwriter Jamie Lin Wilson released her debut full-length solo album back on May 19th entitled "Holidays & Wedding Rings." This new album follows on the heels of her stint with The Trishas and their much-praised 2012 album "High Wide & Handsome." Also, during the recording of this album, Wilson gave birth to a baby boy as the songs on this release reflect memories of the past. Her new twelve song album begins with the country swing of "Just Like Heartache" as Wilson's voice is in top form. The country blues of "She'll Take Tonight" and the slow, meaningful duet of "Just Some Thing," which features Wade Bowen, showcases Wilson's talents for portraying the perfect mood for her lyrics. She gently treads by with "Whisper On My Skin," before closing with the slow country blues of "Old Oldsmobile." Jamie Lin Wilson has a few live dates scheduled around Texas.
