Album Review: Wynonna & The Big Noise - Self-Titled (9/10)

Even when she was singing with her mom in The Judds, Wynonna always had a bluesy edge. Forming Wynonna & The Big Noise with her husband, drummer Cactus Moser, in 2012 brought her passion for roots music, Americana, blues, soul and rock to the forefront—and has led to this transformational, earthy yet spiritual set that’s graceful yet raw, crackling yet lush and swampy yet soulful. In addition to the core band of Peter King (keys), Dow Tomlin (bass) and Justin Weaver (guitar), Wynonna and Moser create an emotionally resonant eclectic fusion vibing with guests Susan Tedeschi, Derek Trucks, Jason Isbell and Timothy B. Schmit.

Score: 9 out of 10
