Little Johnny Kantreed / Press

“Make no mistake about it, this is a Blues album. Born and raised in Music City, Kantreed has recorded an album that feels like it would be home down in the swampland of Louisiana or the Mississippi Delta. The opener, "Cigar Box Blues," churns and turns just like any rebel-rouser in the afore-mentioned states would, and he turns in a nice cover of the classic "Goodnight Irene." He can slow it down just a little, as he does on the story song "Louis Collins" and the raspy "One Red Rose," where Kantreed shows a little bit of a sensitive side. My personal favorite on this album is the thumping "What A Shame," which while there are no blues singles charts (I'm not counting the hip / hop dominated R&B chart), I think this song could have a huge impact. Get ready, people….Kantreed is about to make his voice known! ”
