Sean Pinchin embraces his inner bluesman on Rust Bucket

E-mail Print

Sean Pinchin embraces his blues roots on his new CD ‘Rust Bucket,’ and , with the  help of Toronto folk/ pop singer Rob Szabo, polishes it to a sheen shine.Click here to hear Sean Pinchin
 He starts off with a  couple outstanding slide powered  raunchy blues rockers  with ‘Broke Down Automobile,’ ‘Boo Hoo’ and the catchy  ‘High Heeled Shoes,’ kicking things off in fine form.

While Rust Bucket is all about the blues, Pinchin also revisit his former folk singer/ balladeer personna on a couple very slow songs  ‘Can‘t Stop Falling in Love,’ which ends the CD and ‘the mournful ‘Comin’ Home,” which are both about leaving  loved ones behind while he is on the road. ‘Comin’ Home’ is also slide powered but also has a short but sweet guitar solo.

 While the slower songs are beautiful, faster paced songs like ‘Dirt Poor’ and ‘Complete Fool,’  are shine with luminescent beauty.
  That one reminds of some of the finest work of Austin bluesman David Holt (Storyville, Carlene Carter, the Mavericks), especially with the rhythm.
 He has an appealing voice which is actually reminiscent of Rob Szabo.

 Emma -Lee adds some appealing background vocals to several tracks, which Steve Strongman supplies hot guitar and harp to the Delta blues stylings of  ‘I Wanna Stay in Bed.’
