Randy Lee Riviere – Blues Sky

From Marty Gunther’s Red Hot ‘n Blues Reviews.

A self-described “country boy” singer-songwriter who delivers a hard-to-define mix of musical stylings, Randy Lee Riviere teams with Grammy-winning producer Kevin McKendree and ventures into new territory on his latest disc, delivering a groove-heavy masterwork that’s still hard to define but blue through and through.

Randy Lee handles vocals and six-string in a four-piece setting that’s enhanced by the singing of the McCrary Sisters – Ann, Regina and Freda – the Nashville-based soul and gospel treasures. McKendree contributes guitar and keys in addition to his production duties in this all-original set.

Give a listen to “American Redoubt,” “You’re So Kind,” “Do or Don’t,” “Spit Shine,” “One More Time,” “What You Know About Pain?,” “Rocky’s Road,” “Joseline” and “Cold Cold River.”
