In her young years, Casey Hensley has already achieved industry attention and garnered awards some others still only dream of gathering. her singing and vocal style is full and voluptuous, sensual and sexy, but she, as an entertainer does not let her feminine power overwhelm her talent, quite the opposite, it is her musical skill that makes her a powerful woman, on and off the stage.
GOOD AS GONE has everything one wants in a Blues Fusion Album, taking all the best from a multi-genre platform and rolling it into one dynamic record, from the opening of the title track Good As Gone which has a rolling Rock and Roll back beat underlying delta blues lyric stylings, which just sparks goosebumps and fire, a feeling that continues throughout. Casey then takes on a slow hand ride in You Should Be So Lucky, a song that reminds one just how good things can be for the right person at that right time. If I Pray is a song that really shows her range in the high end vocals, invoking emotions and grooves with guitar work that is sublime. The songs Be My Baby and Love Will Break Your Heart is a wild pair to hear, Be My Baby, which is a song that is upbeat and peppy, in a voice of one who looks at that prospect of love with high hopes, which is immediately followed by Love Will Break Your Heart, which is a lament to how things can go wrong, even when it feels so right.
In Searching for a Man, Casey Hensley stirs the heart with a sad song of desire for romance, while in What’s A Woman To Do is a bright and bold, poppin, Motown Sound, short and sweet blues serenade. Her performance of the track Don’t Want It To Stop, WOW, such soothing and silky vocals, paired with timber and vibrato, like coming home to all the love in the world. Ending the album with All In, a jumpin’ and jivin’ old school dance hall blast.
