Product Description

Sister Vagabond is the follow up to Candye Kane's critically acclaimed 2009 Delta Groove release "Superhero" which received a 2010 Blues Music Award nomination for best contemporary blues album of the year. Kane once again delivers her heart on a platter and presents a more mature and swinging collection of scorching blues and soul originals, searing with the young Laura Chavez's impressive guitar work. The album also features guest appearances by James Harman, Billy Watson, Nathan James, Matt Hensley, Eddie Baytos, Thomas Yearsley, Stephen Hodges and Jonny Viau, in addition to her regular touring band.

Kane's first album after beating pancreatic cancer, 2009's Superhero, was rightly built on themes from the fight. This follow-up release extends the recovery, but more by doubling-down on the blues belting career she had before, than by living some sort of hyperaware second chapter. There's a pleasure in her singing that's perhaps a step more ferocious than before, expressing George Herbert's notion that living well is the best revenge, or in this case, the greatest triumph. But the scars she carries - a problematic childhood, early motherhood, less-than-savory jobs and cancer recovery - are those of a winner, the marks carried by anyone who's lived enough life to really sing the blues. Kane's nine new original songs are matters of the heart, mostly roughed-up and broken, occasionally recovered. The four covers include a sweet and sexy take on Johnny "Guitar" Watson's "I Love to Love You" and a moody version of "Sweet Nothin's" that adds Wanda Jackson's scorching sass to Brenda Lee's original precociousness. Laura Chavez's guitar is given equal voice to Kane's vocals, motivating the songs with twangy rhythm playing and stinging riffs, and James Harman guests on harmonica for Jack Tempshin and Glen Frey's previously unrecorded "Everybody's Gonna Love Somebody Tonight." Take these tunes for a spin on Whittier, Tweedy or Bellflower, and enjoy the punchy mixes as they roar from the rear speaker of your '62 Impala. [©2011 hyperbolium dot com]

Right from the start Ms. Kane and her trusty partner set the stage for a rollicking, roller coaster ride thru various side roads where the Blues truly reside. Johnny Guitar Watson's "I Love To Love You' kicks off the disc with a guitar riff from Laura that harkens back to the giants of blues guitar and adds a sultry vocal statement by Candye that changes to swing to shuffle and back again - not to stop there LC cuts through it all with a scorching solo that expresses so much in a limited format. Ms. Chavez understands that the space between the notes are as valuable as the notes themselves and again and again demonstrates this fact for all to hear.

`Love Insurance' is an up-beat song telling the tale of our heroine pleading for the one insurance policy that the powers that be haven't yet been able to milk us on. `Sweet Nothin's' is a down right greasy adaptation of the Brenda Lee pop song. Swampy and sensual yet somewhat innocent in the songs truer meaning, Ms. Kane easily works the vocals into a tight prayer of thankfulness while Ms. Chavez adds an almost Creedence Clearwater touch of guitar to it. Fun times with this one.

What might be the best track is a Kane/Chavez original (one of 9) `Walkin' Talkin' Haunted House'. A wonderfully composed lyrical poem wherein Ms. Kane sets herself as a `walkin', talkin' haunted house' that is occupied with the ghosts of her past lovers. A fascinating thought, and delivered spot on by both Candye and Laura. No other cut to date has captured the bond between these two ladies as this one does. There are some added effects by Stephen Hodges such as chains and various forms of percussion that adds to the otherworldly feel of this track - bravo !

On almost every of Ms.

This new album reminds me of the early bluesy Candye I came to love many years ago. I had missed that the last few years, but now it's as if "Candye's back!!" and she's back to making the best music she's written and sang in years. It's as if she has a new found energy and purpose of song and life in this outstanding collection of songs. Laura Chavez and her blues guitar resonate along with Candye's beautiful voice to lift this album above anything she has done in recent years. Candye has always been about the blues and blues swing, but this new album is so down-home blues again. Congratulations to Candye, Laura, James Harmann on harmonica, and the whole band backing the vocals with such energy and verve. I would rate this one near the top, if not at the top, of Candye's best albums ever!

I'm new to Candye Kane but have been listening to Laura Chavez for about 8 years now. Without meaning to take anything away from Candye Kane, Laura Chavez absolutely smokes on this album. If you love blues guitar then you gotta give this one a listen.
