CD Review: Andy Macintyre Plays The Blues For "Ruby"

From Austin, TX comes singer/songwriter Andy Macintyre with his bluesy third album, “Ruby.” With the help of Doug Day on drums and Chris Alexander on bass, Andy has accomplished his most mature, complete album to date. His last album, “Revolution” took a slight detour from his hard rocking debut album, “Set Me Free,” but this latest release has the right combination of blues and rock as heard in the opening song “Left Behind.”

He heads down south for some southern blues in the title-song and relaxes a bit on “Jailene,” before getting down and dirty with “Bluebird 1.” The standout track on his latest album is the Creedence Clearwater Revival, swamp music sound of the instrumental, “The Human,” which leads into the Chicago-blues based “Deranged.” The album closes with the hard-rocking attack of “D’Evil” and the slow-burning “Other Side…”

The new album by Andy Macintyre is available now digitally at iTunes, Amazon, CDBaby and others sites. It is also available on CD from Andy’s website andymacintyre.com.

Love this guy! He is likely one of the best kept musical secrets in Austin. You have got to see this guy live. He plays in such a unique style, it's like no one else is doing. Thanks for the review on him. Check out his 2010 release called "Revolution".
