"Moontime" by Kelly Moon McGinnis (Rock Artist from Colorado(CO))

Colorado-based songwriter Kelly Moon McGinnis delivers a one-two punch of blues and rock on his latest effort, "Moontime." McGinnis is a well-known staple in the Denver area and has opened for famed acts such as Big Head Todd & the Monsters and Leon Redbone. The most likeable thing about this album is McGinnis's vocals and the way in which he delivers them. In "Your Wishing Well," listeners get to hear his gritty singing voice, very similar to that of Tom Waits or Bob Dylan. McGinnis's songwriting also stays true to the blues roots and features some exciting guitar work as well. Another standout track is "God Is Love," which has a tropical feel to it and is very reminiscent of late 70's George Harrison work. This album is a must-have for any Waits fan or anyone who loves that nitty-gritty blues sound.
