Singer-guitarist Lyric Dubee is a Toronto based artist who, though just 21, has put out 5 albums. Not surprisingly, his new songs––full of classic rock ingredients––are altogether solid and crafty. And Dubee’s voice is a smooth, likable tenor that is recorded and mixed with skill. Above all, he’s got a terrific band that is polished and powerful. “Back Home” is a cool blues- rocker infused with super-soul harmonica. Going for a more modern sound is “All This Time,” though it did not make a big impression on us. However, “Shoulda Went Home,” featuring a kickass guitar solo, gets our vote for the artist’s best song. Still, it’s the songwriting area that needs the most attention. The band itself is a thrill to hear.
