“As a veteran, award-winning Michigan blues outfit, singer Freddie Cunningham and Lansing’s Root Doctor have established a solid reputation for their engaging live shows. But with “New Attitude,” recorded and mastered by respected producer Glenn Brown at East Lansings’ GBP Studios, the band also sets a new high watermark for its studio work, generating blues sparks on originals – many of them written by Lisa Bonotto and keybord player Mike Skory – that ooze buckets of soul. From the classic blues vibe of “Pay the Rent” to the horn- and guitar-saturated “The Other Way” to the Cajun flavors of “Louisiana Bound,” Skory, guitarist Bill Malone, bassist James Williams, drummer Bob Gardner and a host of special guests add just the right touches to Cunningham’s vintage vocals.”
