A killer debut from soul singer Kelly Finnigan
– an artist who's got years of experience under his belt, working on other folks' projects – finally out in the spotlight on his own! Kelly
's a blue-eyed singer, but has a voice that crackles with a classic soul rasp – set up here in the kind of deep soul, funk-based backings you'd expect from the record's placement on the Colemine label! Drums are heavy, arrangements are full, horns are tight, and there's some great organ lines that burn alongside Kelly
's vocals – to really give the whole thing a deeply-rooted southern soul quality. Finnigan
produced the whole thing himself – and titles include "I Called You Back Baby", "Freedom", "Can't Let Him Down", "I Don't Wanna Wait", "I'll Never Love Again", "Smoking & Drinking", "Every Time It Rains", and "Since I Don't Have You Anymore".
