“TOM KEENAN is another Irishman with a new release, but the County Down singer songwriter, who has been playing locally for the past 20 years, has produced quite an ace for his debut album “The Devil’s Playground”. The album was recorded in Los Angeles, and produced by legendary Pete Anderson, probably best known for producing Dwight Yoakam’s hits. Two of the tracks come from Anderson’s pen, with “No One Left To Blame” having a Johnny Cash ring to it. “You’ve Got Me Wondering” has more of a Tex Mex feel to it. Tom , himself wrote three of the songs, including the title track, which features a nice steel intro. “Because Of You”, which closes the project, has quite a Joe Ely feel to it. Other tracks are covers, such as The Everly’s “So Sad To Watch Good Love Go Bad”, The Maverick’s “All You Ever Do Is Bring Me Down”, and “Charlie Walker’s “Pick Me Up On Your Way Down”. I enjoyed the album, especially the original material. Well worth a listen. w”
