A rolling tom-tom groove makes way for a blues-rock guitar, then piano, then horns, for a full-bodied, upbeat sound. That’s the spirit inhabiting this band on “Broken Promiseland,” whose vocalist insists “Love’s gonna find you one way or another!” It’s a fun, high-spirited tune, and though it’s not a memorable hook, it’s got a winning vibe.  Same goes for “Unwritten,” which makes excellent use of the whole band in sending its message: “The story ain’t over and the end is unwritten!” Could be a song that’s ripe for TV placement? Things take a solemn turn with the epic banjo-laced ballad “Guns of Shiloh” wherein the singer relates a grandad’s deathbed confession of (one suspects) tragic racist crimes as a young man.
