    The Girls are Leading The British Invasion This Time...

    They should have called this album `Brilliance'. It does so much more than just Shine. A couple of years ago - alright! Fifty years ago a phenomena called The British Invasion hit the shores of America fueled by young English kids delivering their take on American Blues and Rhythm & Blues music. John Lee Hooker said of the likes of The Animals, The Stones and other of these blues powered bands, "these white boys want to play the blues real bad, and these white boys play the blues REAL BAD." And that was true. many of them weren't schooled in the blues, but what they lacked in life experience they made up for with heart and soul. Well, today John Lee might say, "These white girls want to play the blues real bad, and they play the blues REAL GOOD." Call out the guards, we are in the midst of another British invasion and this time it is being lead by the girls. And this time they are schooled in the blues. Led by the breakthrough of Adele and joining her in the front ranks comes Dani Wilde. With a voice that ranges all over the chart, and off the chain Wilde brings a respect, an energy and a maturity to contemporary blues that is fated to conquer the air waves, the award ceremonies, and the soul of American fans. She's a triple threat, At 20 years of age she pens her own blues numbers. Nine of the eleven songs on this master piece are originals. To be sure, you can hear the influences of Aretha Franklin, Howlin' Wolf not to mention the entire Stax catalog and every blues shouter that came out of the Chicago Blues scene. But they are original blues written with a maturity that belies her youth. She has a voice that covers the full range of emotion - and a good deal of the available octaves - from sweet caressing highs to down and dirty growls and toss in a bit of the British folk styling's for good measure. And what's more, she plays great guitar. I don't mean she stands on stage and strums with a Telecaster as a prop while some hired gun lays down the licks either. She plays with a unique finger style. There isn't a throw away song on the album but a few of my favorites are the emotionally dark "Don't Give Up On Me" , the lament for the children of Kenya, and especially those at the County Primary School in the slums of Embu who inspired the song. Listen to it, "Abandoned Child" is 7 plus minutes of slow, minor key major plea blues for today.
