SANTA BARBARA’S PARADISE KINGS CD RELEASE PARTY FOR THEIR BRAND NEW ALBUM, “CONTROLLED BURN”
“Rock, Blues, and a little bit of Swing” Performing Live !
UPTOWN LOUNGE – Sunday, July 30, 2pm to 5pm
Santa Barbara is not only a beautiful SoCal locale, it also boasts a vibrant live local music scene. With the release of their new album “Controlled Burn,” Paradise Kings proudly assume their place among that town’s premiere list of original music acts.
Indie Pulse Music writes, Controlled Burn is “a collection of tracks that show a wide range of musical talent. With it’s Blues, Rock and Swing inspirations, Paradise Kings have really knocked this one out of the park. Vocalist Henry Garrett and (guest vocalist) Jan Ingram, are a bold combination and whether they sing together or separately, you have to love them both. An example would be the smooth vocal tracks on ‘Butter Me Up’, where Ingram pulls a Satin Doll with smokey and saucy temper. In ‘Money Ain’t My Friend,’ Garrett takes his shots, one after the other, bringing that smokey barroom sound to the venues they perform, and on this album, into your living room.” Read the entire review here.
Known for their high-energy live shows, Paradise Kings consists of Henry Garrett on lead vocals; Jeff Gring on guitar; Michael Robertson on the bass; and George Lambert on drums. Lambert briefly describes each of the eight tracks on Controlled Burn:
69 Chevy: “Good-time, swingin’ trip back to the times of fast cars and faster women…”
I’d Sing The Blues If I Had ‘Em: “Straightforward blues shuffle about the juxtaposition of a lucky guy who loves blues music.”
