The Lucky Losers With Cathy Lemons & Phil Berkowitz: Godless Land (LP)
(VizzTone) 9 tracks The Lucky Losers, release their long awaited fourth album GODLESS LAND. and continue their winning streak with acclaimed producer/engineer and multi-instrumentalist Kid Andersen.
After winning the "Best Blues-Soul Artist" Independent Music Award for their previous album "Blind Spot" in 2019, vocal duo Cathy Lemons and Phil Berkowitz (supported by an all-star band) take you on an opulent musical journey through the lecherous, jazzy blues of the late 1920s, the jump-swing era of the late 1950s, the Chicago and Tin Pan Alley music of the 1960s and finally the sweet R&B/soul of the early 1970s.
Berkowitz's bright tenor voice and big, rich-sounding harp underscore Lemons' haunting vocals, while serpentine guitar lines, funky organ and wah-wah riffs bring each song to life. Of the twelve tracks, nine are originals (six by Cathy Lemons and three by Phil Berkowitz and his collaborator Danny Caron) and three are rare gems created for the vocal duo.
There is an enchanting balance between Berkowitz's seductive, introspective songwriting and Lemons' crass, insightful commentary on today's challenging times.
