CD Review: Chet Vincent And The Big Bend Are "For Everyone" To Enjoy

Pittsburgh native Chet Vincent returns with his friends, The Big Bend to release their sophomore album "For Everyone." The album was self-produced and released on August 23. Their sound is a cross between honky-tonk country and blues infused folk-rock.

Their honky-tonk sound flies right out with the album opener "Dead Kings" as Chet's voice plays the perfect cowboy telling stories of his adventures. Bassist Tad Wissel takes a crack at the lead vocals on "Without A Doubt" and "When You're Gone." The acoustic campfire song "Goodbye, My Love" is the perfect setting for Chet's countrified vocals. The band breaks out from the slow, country blues on "Mile Markers" as they seem to enjoy picking up the tempo. The addition of Molly Szramowski on vocals gives the closing song "State Line" a breath of fresh air as Chet sounds more relaxed sharing the vocal duties.

Chet Vincent & The Big Bend have a couple shows lined-up in the Pittsburgh, PA area. Check out the band's website, for more information.
