Laurie Morvan - Gravity
CD Review by Frank-John Hadley
May 2018

(Screaming Lizard 0006; 51:39 3½ stars)
Blessed with an ear for clarity and lyricism, Laurie Morvan on her fifth straight enjoyable album uses her semi-sweet soul singing voice as a foil to her blues-rock guitar peals of fluid notes. Her dozen thoughtful songs, with slow-sizzling "Gravity" telling the most convincing story, are confident assertions of standing your ground in worrying relationships. For her studio team, she's sought out several of the most reliable hired guns on the West Coast, like producer-drummer Tony Braunagel and B-3 exponents Mike Finnigan and Jim Pugh. Part-time backup singers wax a strong sense of solemnity or revelation. Ordering info: lauriemorvan.com
