A little bit o' the blues never hurt nobody, and Jim Byrnes' "Everywhere West" might be just what the doctor ordered for you. With a little Buddy Guy, a touch of Watermelon Slim, and just a pinch of Stevie Ray Vaughan, Jim Byrnes has the right stuff to make fans from coast to coast.
Byrnes is a modern blues master, radio ready and headed for the top of the charts. His songs are crafted with care, and the album's finale came way too fast. I'm already waiting to hear what comes next from this talented storyteller.
"Storm Warning" is the song that got me the most. A new classic, it showcases Byrnes' musicianship and leaves the listener wanting more. Get ready to hear this song on blues radio stations nationwide.
Very rarely do I hear an album that goes straight into my computer's hard drive. I have a feeling my online time will go a lot smoother with "Everywhere West" on the speakers. Do yourself a favor, and grab your copy soon.
