The new release by Billy J Bryan & The Ax Grinders, a contemporary NYC band whose roots and influences go back a decade or more, has just released their latest collection of songs, and it’s chock full of music that reflect their varied backgrounds and influences. Fans of British Invasion Rock, as well as heavier material, such as that of Deep Purple, Led Zeppelin, Jeff Beck, Alice Cooper, and the more commercial material of such bands as The Stones, The La’s, Rick Springfield, Deep Blue Something, and a host of other great artists, this band is masterful at synthesizing their various ingredients in making what they do sound fresh again. Their songs, subject matter, and even the sometimes unorthodox instruments they use in their various compositions complement the various styles with skillful expertise. Their range goes from pop, with Because Of Chloe, to pensive rock, with I Believe In Rock & Roll. The song – A Little Bit Risky brings to mind the sound of Rock-a-billy made modern. Billy J Bryan & The Ax grinders have something for every taste with this latest release, and they are bound to attract new listeners with this offering.
