Beth McKee
"Next To Nowhere"
(Swampgirl, 2011)
-------------------------------------------------------
Excellent! Exactly the sort of beautifully eclectic blues-Americana blend you'd expect from modern-day New Orleans... Singer-pianist Beth McKee hints at a rich variety of inspirations, with wisps of Bonnie Raitt, Tracy Nelson, Lou Ann Barton, Doug Sahm and Delbert McClinton, a loose, funky, sweetly soulful mix on an album packed with strong original material. If you're looking for the young blood that's reinvigorating American roots music, check out this album: this gal's the real deal! (DJ Joe Sixpack, Slipcue Guide To Country Music)

American Roots Music at it's best, to hell with genres and classifications, Ms. McKee comes straight out of the chute and wins us over with the Cajun spiced title track "Next To Nowhere". Accordion ablaze and just a touch of good ol' guitar pickin' makes this a super introductory song to her music.
With vocal influences ranging from Tracy Nelson, Janiva Magness, and Lou Ann Barton, Ms. McKee knows how to utilize her voice and tonal quality in a wide variety of song styles. "Shoulda Kept On Walkin'" is a nice horn aided funky step up song that speaks of inner focus and how sometimes we wished we woulda kept on walkin', like we never been there huh ?
"Same Dog's Tail" is a sweet visit to that Cajun/Louisiana land of wit and proverbs that are so aptly spoken, or in this case sung. Words to remember for sure. A strong release of original songs Ms. McKee certainly captures our ear and deserves a serious listening session with us all.

I didn't know this artist, however, she is great. I love the Cajun/zydeco feel of her music. Recommend this to all who love Cajun/zydeco music.

Genres be busted, full steam ahead! Doesn't matter if you're feeling reflective, boisterous, angry, happy or blue --- there's a song on this album with your name on it. McKee's last album was stellar ("I'm That Way," covers of Bobby Charles' tunes). "Next to Nowhere," though, goes places that one couldn't, because McKee penned all the lyrics on this one and sings with the complete authority that only comes from personal experience. And when I say sings --- what a voice!
