LUCKY WIDMORE-Long Time Coming

Another innovative band from London, Ontario, Lucky Widmore released their EP, “Long Time Coming” to rave local reviews. A favourite bar band in their home town, these four guys have a unique and distinctive sound created by a fusion of reggae, funk, pop and rock.

lucky1The album opens with” Dollars Down“, a funky tune with great drum shots, a bass heavy bridge and some very gritty vocals all set to a reggae beat. “Where Would I Be“, has strong bass lines and prevalent drums with a lead guitar solo that sounds like surf music. The power chords in the chorus of “Safe And Sound” give this song a rock edge while still delivering the reggae feel that Lucky Widmore has come to be known for. The ballad “Hold Me Good Night” contains full, yet light harmonies and an acoustic intro that sets the melodic tone of the song. “Obsession” moves from light reggae-pop to rock and back again, almost effortlessly. The bass and drums carry this song while  making way for echoing guitars and a wonderfully creative tinny piano sound. The best track on the album, “Someone’s Got To Lose” demonstrates Lucky Widmore’s  range of talent. Gutsy vocals, well executed harmonies, tempo changes and an infectious melody make this song.

Long Time Coming” is a good time, feel good album with great songs that contain surf tones, rock riffs and pop melodies. Like riding the waves, the music moves in many different ways, playing with convention and tradition. But these guys make it work. A solid debut effort from a tight and talented band, and a fun listen.
