Black Cat Bones: Tattered & Torn

Tuscon, AZ blues quintet Black Cat Bones perform heartfelt songs that provide some solace when life has dealt the listener a really bad hand. They have been there as well and while the music on their new album Tattered & Torn isn't a sure fire cure for all kind of trouble it can help to get another perspective.

Lead singer Charles Pitts is not a run of the mill blues belter. His nasal delivery could have been drowned out by Gary David's and Richard Rivera's twin guitars, but producers Jeff Daniels and Duncan Stitt carefully balanced the band's sound in the studio. Tattered & Torn has a Seventies swagger a la Johnny Winter and pre-MTV ZZ Top. It's brutally honest, and loud and soft in the all the right places.
