Published Mar 14, 2011Over the course of four previous LPs, Winnipeg songstress Romi Mayes has carved out a niche with her dark and dirty blues stylings. Now, she's getting ready to keep the momentum going with her fifth full-length, Lucky Tonight, due out April 26.
Dubbed an "electric duo album," the collection was recorded live in concert with guitarist Jay Nowicki of the Perpetrators. This means that the whole thing was done live in one take, and a press release calls it "one more victory in this bad ass guitar playin lady's discography."
In addition to fiery blues jams, the ten-song collection promises to offer "honest sultry, sweet and sexy tunes that have schooled young men and made the grown men cry."
