"Their mission is to “bring peace, healing and love to the world, one song at a time” – can’t argue with those sentiments."Of course, such a statement brings to mind the hippy ideals of the late ‘60s and early ‘70s, and I’m sure the group wont mind being identified with a movement that inspired so much fantastic music. Martini Garden certainly look back to the ‘60s and ‘70s on their debut offering “Give A Little Love”, a 15-track mix of blues, rock and Americana styles. For the most part their songs are upbeat and lively, with Christine’s vocals mixed high in the mix and a hustling harmonica adding bluesy leads and emphasis. They kick off with “Meaning of Rock and Roll”, and all their unique elements fall instantly into place – their fun rolling blues rhythm, the mesh of guitar and harmonica giving way to strong vocals, and a catchy lyric that sticks around.Their approach is gentler and more reflective, on songs like “In Love” and “Key to My Heart”
