While Orianthi may not be a bassist, she is a highly talented guitarist and vocalist. And I love her. Orianthi released her second studio album, Heaven in this Hell, about two weeks ago and I have had the opportunity to listen to it top to bottom. This album really shows off Orianthi’s vocal talent as well as her musical talents. I love this album so very much that I figured I would review it. Here we go!
This first song off the album is Heaven in this Hell. This song encompasses many rock influences. When you first turn it on, there’s this eerie voice over before a heavy guitar intro comes on. The song has a groove worth dancing for!
However, the next track is You Don’t Wanna Know and this track really encompasses modern country. The guitar intro is so earthy and almost bluegrass-y. The track still holds the rock feel to it, but it’s a lot like what modern country is today: Kick ass. Other tracks like Fire, If U Think That U Know Me, and Rock, also hold a lot of country influences.
Then you have tracks like How Do You Sleep?, How Does That Feel? and Filthy Blues, that hold a lot of blues influences. The guitar solos and lyrics hold true to what a lot of modern day blues has become.
This album as a whole is incredible. The songs are extremely catchy, well produced, and well written. Definitely worth it to listen to!
Whether you’re looking for musicians or you’re a musician looking for gigs, it’s easy to look to CraigsList or Facebook or something like that. I love CraigsList. I’ve been able to furnish most of my house through CraigsList. However, I can’t say I’ve gotten any really GOOD gigs from them. So, I did my research and I found some other websites that offer musicians or gigs. Check ‘em out!
