Susan Aquila – Broken Angel
(Original Kitchen Records – 2014)
This ladies resume is incredible since she has worked with people such as Paul McCartney, Deep Purple, Trans-Siberian Orchestra, Tommy Lee, Steven Tyler, Robert Plant and many, many more.
She is a Grammy-nominated vocalist and electrical violinist and this is her debut album. It’s like Charlie Daniels meets ELO but with a metal sound there too and then some…
There are some really grabbing songs like the opening classical Led Zep gone Egyptian ‘Sah Tah’; the Southern-Rock like ‘Intervention’ and ‘India (Jungalbandi)’ that puts you in mind of the country itself. Then there’s the excellent ‘Johnny Got Lost’ which has a wicked rhymed intro to it or the closing ‘Don’t Be So Nice’
Violins at the forefront baby!
