Blues artist Karen Lawrence & Blue by Nature have not been idle during the “Music Lockdown” caused by the recent pandemic, which has caused many an issue for the music world, and with the partnership they have with the masterful musical artistry of Fred Hostetler, a great new song has been launched soon to excite the Blues music scene, as well as the Independent and national music scenes worldwide.
Recorded, mixed & mastered by J. Browning, Fred Hostetler and Tony Saracene, the talents of Karen Lawrence & Blue by Nature really sine strong and entertain on a spiritual level. As a follow up to the album ‘Best of Live’, Bad Spell is a breath of fresh air in the sea of sameness and a powerful footnote to these times where people’s lives have undergone so much change.
From the moment Lawrence sings “Oh…baby” you know where she is headed and the band and the arrangement support her the whole way through Bad Spell without faltering. The new arrangement features additional guitar work by Tony Saracene and Fred Hostetler himself . The song originally appeared on the album ‘Hard Daze’ and has been renewed and revitalized with energy and emotion.
In Review: Bad Spell by Karen Lawrence & Blue By Nature is just stunning, a classically styled Blues composition, yet modern and strong, it has in it’s lyrics everything that makes music fun and vibrant, the vocal talents of Karen Lawrence are amazing, rich and plentiful, as is the music performed. The talents of the musicians involved fall into place perfectly and resounds with vibes that stun. this track is a real winner and sets the tone for more to come.
In commentary: Fred Hostetler says “This is one of my favorite Blue By Nature songs. It is a mid tempo bluesy ballad that delivers a stunning and powerful vocal performance by Karen and a great track with trademark Blue By Nature rhythm guitars and stinging leads that complement Karen’s evocative singing.“
