Urban Country News “Buzz” Review
Songwriters: Jaren Johnston, Kelby Ray, Neil Mason
In the spring of this year, southern-rock trio The Cadillac Black released their self-titled debut album. Though there are at least five or six equally strong candidates, logical first single is the good time of ‘Get Your Buzz On.’
‘Well, us boys, we ain’t suit-and-tie,’ Jaren Johnston states the obvious right at the start. This song has one simple goal, to take you to a down-home party and make you forget any and all worries. There are days when life really does not need to be more than that, because ‘there ain’t nothin’ wrong/with a little knock-down, drag-out, go and let your hair down/party on the farm ’til the rooster crows.’
Many current country-rock songs rely too heavily on loudness to make their point. TCB show that you don’t need to go big to impress. A great riff, creative and irreverent songwriting, a unique voice, and with only three musicians they create a sound that sets them apart from everyone else. Kelby Ray’s lap steel notes make a trip through a bass amp, eliminating the need for a bass player, and helping achieve the band’s heavier sound organically.
The Cadillac Black’s ‘Get Your Buzz On,’ is rocking good fun from one of Nashville’s most exciting bands. Turn your radio up to 11 for this one!
