Album: Big Beets
Release Date: May 26, 2017
Genre: Hard Blues
Quebec has some awesome talent coming out of that province for the fans of blues music. Martin Goyette comes at us with a hard blues album called Big Beets. As always there is a ton of superb harmonica action and of course, those deep whiskey drinking vocals that every Blues fan has come to know from Martin.
I loved every track on this album, but here are a few of my top picks:
“Unwind” is a true nighttime back alley bar song for those late night scene blues fans. Some deep bass and a howl in his voice captures your attention immediately. So sit back, listen and unwind with Martin Goyette on this track.
“Rolling” has me thinking about a mixture of The Rolling Stones and The Doors, mixed with a kind of psychedelic funky blues that flows together. Hitting the speakers hard while singing about moving fast, no matter what’s trying to stop you. You gotta Keep on Rolling.
“Free Love” is a song about feeling lonely, but never ever wanting to be lonely. Always wondering where and when that love is going to come by. It’s all about professing that your love is the strongest love that anyone will ever feel, if they would just open up their arms and let you in.
“St John Morning Blues” is that good ole community song about grabbing your last bit of cash and putting feet to the ground after a hard night of partying with good friends and hitting up that liquor store all over again to live it up.
These tracks were my favourites out of the ten tracks on Big Beets. From touring in France with Bob Walsh to being a participant on “The Voice” to winning numerous awards in the worldwide blues scene, Martin Goyette is a very important part of the blues scene and if you like his music you need to follow him on his social media sites here:
Inspirational Interviewer and Promotional music lover for artists.
Born in Kingston, I grew up with the likes of Dan Akroyd and his blues influence and also The Tragically Hip, plus live shows downtown in the streets and country bands in the pubs.
I love music in all forms and genres. I can adapt my ear to enjoy and appreciate all instrumentals and vocals. I started writing about certain artists that I grew up listening to and then I reached out to artists for interviews. I have done over 20 interviews with artists and CEOs of industry companies from all over the world.
Now, with Canadian Beats I have an opportunity to improve my journalistic abilities and to get the word out there for artists, and best of all to go to shows and get that personal feeling. I get to represent Canadian music on a higher level. We need to open more doors and have more shows and venues, as well as get the world to come to us. That is my goal.
