Album Review
Mr. Bones
Reviewed 2020-02-06 
In her debut release, King hits it out of the park by presenting an intriguing mix of americana, blues and straight ahead R&R. Her smokey vocals exude Joplin level energy but she can also hit crystal clear high notes easy as slipping off of a wet log. She is a masterful tunesmith having written or cowritten every song on the disk, which includes such great lines as “hold me till lonely don’t live here no more”. For her “songwriting is like touching the hearts of other people” and she believes in music as therapy, hence the album title. If you at all dig powerful female americana & blues vocals backed by a red hot band, you’ll want to give Radio Therapy a spin. Play the whole dang disk and crank it up to 11.

RIYL: Mavis Staples, Janis Joplin, Roberta Flack

**1 The Storm – slow & soulful showcase for her superb voice with lazy wah-wah tinged guitar (slow, 3:04)
**2 Cannonball – dreamy intro to bittersweet goodbye song to one’s beau in search of “someone just as crazy as me” (med, 3:15)
***3 Best Life – uptempo toe tapper about living life with gusto with monster guitar & organ help (fast, 3:12)
***4 Rock Your Boat – powerful rocker about a couple getting together for the first time with power guitar breaks (fast, 3:09)
***5 Lover's Lament – her sensual vocal styling really shines on this piano driven downtempo blues number (med, 3:35)
***6 What Makes You Go – sumptuous slide work sets the motif for this country blues love song (slow, 3:43)
***7 Damage – moving gospel-ish tale of a sinner seeking redemption with lovely piano accompaniment (slow, 3:43)
8 Cream – etherial hard rocker with distorted guitar & synth (med, 4:39)
**9 Insomnia – killer guitar on this hard driving punk rocker ala early Patti Smith (fast, 3:49)
