Lock Up Your Sons

Lock Up Your Sons

Debra Lyn Neufeld

Reviews in response to "Lock up your Sons" - Uptown Magazine states.... Winnipeg's blues community is small and close-knit -sometimes almost insular. And when one of it's own steps out, he or she has the full support of everyone involved, musically and otherwise. So it is that Debra Lyn Neufeld, Winnipeg's foremost blueswoman, slips from the vault and onto centre stage with 12 stunning tracks which showcase not only her keen knowledge of the form-lyrically and musically- but also the shining abilities of those with whom she works. This album is a seamless whole, a Chicago-style rip-snorter that flows smoothly from the guitar-drenched opener, "So Hard", to the shuffle of "I'm Alright"and the up tempo, hand jive inspired romp of "Attitude Town". Outstanding sidemen include guitarist Chris Carmichael (he's my brother-in-law, yes, but the guy can play) vocalist Scotty Hills and drummer Ken McMahon, who holds everything together and makes it seem easy. Winnipeg Free Press..............WHERE YOU'LL FIND HER: Messing with the boys at the blues bar. Debra Lyn Neufeld is not exactly a shrinking violet. At least not on "Lock up your Sons" Gritty, gutsy, rough and ready-and aided by a slate of local blues MVP's like The Perpetrators- Neufeld delivers sizzling, smoking, sexy blues-rockers in the vein of early Bonnie Raitt. Extra points for writing her own tunes instead of covering classics-though, frankly, most of these dozen cuts are so authentic you'd never know they weren't straight from Chicago. Not bad for a gal who didn't pick up a guitar until age 30.
