Boulevard Lane - 2013 - Boulevard Lane

Boulevard Lane is a four piece blues band from Rio Rancho, New Mexico, USA. Boulevard Lane is their debut LP. The core of the band is singer-songwriter Angela Andazola and Bill Royal, former lead guitarist for Strange Brew and Blues Royale. They play a mixture of rock and roll with some country and blues thrown in on this album of originals. Highlights include Take Me Away, Best Of Me and A Few More.  Angela can have a floating, ethereal quality to her voice and she puts it to great use on If You Fly while Bill has a great emotional voice and puts his mandolin to great use on the aforementioned A Few More. If you like bluesy straightforward rock and roll Boulevard Lane will scratch that itch.
