Info:  Blues-rock from Denmark.  BluesRockReview: “…their last studio release brought the Danish Rockers many accolades in 2014 including #5 on BRR’s top 20 list … they are back to firmly plant their flag with one of the more creative releases in recent memory. Filled with a myriad of songs … from dirty delta influenced blues, to soulful and dynamic ballads and some powerful rockers this album showcases the breadth of their abilities along with the Risager’s unique voice…described as one part Ray Charles, one part Bob Seger, and part Joe Cocker.”
