I love acoustic music. It’s not something I listen to all the time, but I especially love it when a band that isn’t normally unplugged takes that plunge. You can’t hide behind weird noises and effects while playing acoustically. Once I finally got my hands on The Acoustic Sessions I was instantly hooked.
If you were to catch me by surprise and ask me right now who my vote for new band of the year would be, I would have little or no hesitation in telling you RavenEye. The Milton Keynes based blues rock trio are made up of singer and guitarist Oli Brown, drummer Kev Hickman and bassist and Aussie native Aaron Spiers.
I am more than impressed by this excellent band, because their mini-CD sounds perfect at all aspects, vocally, instrumental, songwise and also the production/sound quality is top-notch. Despite the 1980s Hair Metal influences, the band does never sound dated or cliché tingled, thanks to some modern touches here and there, so who knows they might become the next big thing in the USA.
