The Sue Menhart Band is out with "Moving On," a tribute to life's rhythms and the bonding love of family.
The band wrote this song together in their basement practice room in Stonington, CT. The conversation drifted to the band members' daughters and how they were all in different phases of "moving away" (graduating high school, going on to college, moving to NYC for a career.) The track began with the opening bass lick and moved on from there. (The up tempo beat was used to add to the feeling of "moving on.")
The strengths of "Moving On" rest on Menhart's compelling, powerfully familiar vocals. She's got a Reba vibe mixed with a dash of Stevie Nicks, endearing and lovely. And the song's sax delivery - a virtuoso performance.
"Moving On" is featured on Menhart's full-length album Love Ain’t Hard which is available for purchase on iTunes, CD Baby, Amazon and other digital sites.. The album is a collection of roots rock, blues, jazz, soul and pop tunes as well as a tribute to Brian Wilson. Check it.
