Grimm Again
    

REVIEW by Willard Manus
     
Hollywood-based Real Music Records has done blues fans a big favor by releasing Kathryn Grimm's latest CD, GRIMM AGAIN. Grimm is a triple-threat performer (singer, writer, guitarist) whose music sizzles and pops like charcoal-grilled hotdogs. She handles the vocals on all ten cuts, backed up by such musicians as Leon Randolph, Billy Hulting, Jeff Swisstack and Nono Kayzakian. Studio-produced by Grimm and Randolph, the CD highlights the former's warm, comforting voice which she employs to good effect on both ballads and uptempo numbers alike. Her concerns are universal: mortality, wounded pride, joy of life, sadness for fallen friends and unrequited love. She delves into these themes with heartfelt emotion and an infectious blues-rock beat and vibe. Phone (877-570-8550 or visit grimmusic@yahoo.com)
