There's something about blues rock that just won't let me go. From the time that I was 12 years old, there has just been something about a distorted guitar playing blues riffs through a cranked-up amp that has always made the hairs on the back of my neck stand up. It's incredibly rebellious, but at the same time is so down home. It's the blue print of America, just like a pair of worn in jeans bearing your soul through every crease, rip, tear, and fade. And in the right hands, it's magical.
Vancouver-based No Sinner are looking to bring you that magical feeling with their fearless leader Colleen Rennison and her soul-filled, gritty, passionate vocals. With the imminent release of their album Boo Hoo Hoo as well as a North American and European tour in full swing, this hard working/hard partying band want to take rock music back to its roots and are taking no prisoners.
On their cover of jazz legend Nina Simone's "Work Song," this is exactly how they get it done. Big, loud guitar and drums pave the way for Rennison as she pleads through the classic song with a blue-collar attitude and swagger that just can't be matched. Throw in a Guitar Hero-ready guitar solo and all you can do is get out of No Sinner's way and let them do their thing.
So grab yourself a Pabst, put on your favorite pair of Levi's, and turn your speakers up as loud as they can go and get ready for No Sinner.
