CD Review: New Anticipated Albums From Kwame Binea Shakedown, Tony Natale & John Haesemeyer

Arriving June 16th is the debut album titled "Roots Rock 'N' Universal Love" from soul rocker Kwame Binea and the Kwame Binea Shakedown. He brings together a great soul vibe which is felt through his rock 'n' roll/funk backdrop. His new 10-song release begins with the blues-rock of "Ain't Your Woman" as you are first introduced to the amazing vocals of Kwame Binea. The horns come out blazing for the funk-fueled rhythm of "Far Away," before guest guitarist Vernon Reid (Living Colour) lights up "Love Surreal" with an electrifying guitar solo. Kwame quickens the pace with "In Your Eyes" as he looks to establish his signature sound combining his love for rock music with his outstanding soulful vocals. The album closes with the thunderous funk groove of "John James Poe" and the gospel-like, soulful delivery of Jimmy Cliff's "Universal Love."

American musician/songwriter Tony Natale recently released his highly anticipated new album titled "The Camden Promise." Natale has worked alongside such great artists as John Fogerty and Jaco Pastorius, and has also shared a stage with bands like the Red Hot Chili Peppers and the Violent Femmes. His new 9-song release begins with the up-beat, pop rock of "What If You Did?" as his new album is intended to inspire and enlighten the listener. He delivers a southern rock vibe on "Your Love Takes Me Home," before the grunge-like sound of "Promiseman" with an unforgettable chorus. He works up the Santana-like sound of "3 Days On The Road" as his smooth, classic rock sound becomes very addictive. Tony closes his new album with the guitar-driven hard rock of "Insanity" and the sweet, soft rock, seventies melody of "The Way You Walk."

American singer/songwriter John Haesemeyer recently released his new EP titled "Maybe If I Try." The album was recorded in both California and Buenos Aires, Argentina as Haesemeyer and his recording partner Nauhuel Brozini worked with musicians from the Mar del Plata Philharmonic Orchestra in order to get that authentic, international sound. The new, short five-song EP begins with the steady, Americana rock sound of "Big Balloon." Some of the Argentinian influence is felt in the inspirational rock of "Maybe I Try," before his reverts back to the acoustic-based, Americana sounds of "Room For Two." John closes his new album with the sweet, gentle flow of "Theory" as you fully appreciated his songwriting.
