Kat Riggins: In The Boys' Club

When in need of good old juke joint blues with a soul seasoning Kat Riggins is there to cover all the bases and then some. Her new album In The Boys' Club is a bold statement of a powerful artist who can outsing most of the competition and put a lid on all the doubters, who can't handle the sight of a woman hitting the stage.

She doesn't beat around the bush and leads her band through her songs with bravado. In The Boys' Club is tight but loose, whether she keep it simple in Troubles Away (nice touch to make it sound like a well-worn 7") of over the moon in Second to None. She shares the spotlights with Albert Castiglia in the rousing Kitty Won't Scratch<, who also throws in a bunch of choice guitar licks. This is an album for blues lovers of all ages.
