Kenny McGee

Kenny McGee

Review by Brian Angotti

From the "where are they now files" we find Kenny McGee, a soulful vocalist and the mastermind behind the band Julliet. Kenny's first solo release is a collection of ballads and hard-hitting rockers. The album is the vein of Poison and other late eighties and early nineties favorites. This disc is a melodic masterpiece sure to have you singing right along.

Kenny and his band Lefty have been busy writing and recording new material for a new album. Kenny tours extensively throughout the Florida area. For more information on Kenny McGee and Lefty or to purchase this album check out his very cool website www.KennyMcGee.com.

This review is available in book format (hardcover and paperback) in Music Street Journal: The Early Years Volume 4 at lulu.com/strangesound.

Track by Track Review
Don't Ya Worry
"Don't Ya Worry" is a hard rocking track and album opener. It features a melodic chorus and catchy lyrics.
Can't Say Goodbye
"Can't Say Goodbye" is an awesome ballad that could easily fit onto the Monster Ballads compilation disc. This is a strong number and sets the pace for the rest of the album.
Christine
This is a mid-tempo rocker with Kenny's signature vocals intact.
Rosie Red
Kicking off with a killer guitar solo, this one then slams into a catchy rocker. It is sure to have you singing right along.
Something In Your Smile
"Something In Your Smile" is a bluesy rocker reminiscent of Great White.
It Ain't Over
In this cut, music flows together nicely. Until you get to the chorus where there is such a strong feelings and emotions are felt.
Not About Love
A fun party song, this track resembles Kenny's work with Julliet.
Baby Jane
This one is a catchy up-tempo ballad. Kenny seems to do ballads well, with such heart and emotion.
Miss Virginia
Starting off as acoustic this one then drives into a heavy rocker. Miss Virginia is a fun song with a story to go along with it.
Witches Brew
"Witches Brew" is the hardest track on the album and is done very well. It features a heavy guitar riff and screaming vocals.
Best of Me
This slow acoustic track features Kenny doing what he does best.
