Blues Keep Knockin’ By Trudy Lynn

Many people are very superstitious about the number 13 but Trudy Lynn is hoping that it is lucky for her as Blues Keep Knockin’ is her 13th solo album release.

She has becomes a blues staple. Her 2016 album, I’ll Sing The Blues For You, received a Blues Music Nomination, while her 2014 release, Royal Oaks Café, reached number one on the blues charts.

She is an interpreter of songs rather than a composer. She reaches back to the material of such classic blues singers as Etta James, Big Maybelle, Big Bill Broonzy, and Aretha Franklin among others.

She does not caress a song but rather overwhelms it with emotion and her big voice. “That’s Alright,” “One Monkey Don’t Stop The Show,” “I Sing The Blues,” “When I Been Drinkin,’” and “Never Been To Spain” all succumb to her passionate and energetic approach.

She is a classic blues singer. While her band, particularly when her brass section plays, has a modern feel; but when she sings on the breaks, she transport the listener back to the era of smoke filled clubs late at night.

Blues Keep Knockin’ is another strong effort from Trudy Lynn, so grab your favorite beverage, turn down the lights, and enjoy one of the better female blues singers working today.
