Tad Robinson – Real Street was produced by David Earl and Tad Robinson on the Severn Records, Inc. label.

Talented Brooklyn, New York native Tad Robinson is no stranger to the Blues having received eight Blues Music Award nominations. As a singer, songwriter, and harmonicist, Tad Robinson is the perfect frontman for his Soulful Blues interpretation.

The 10-track album, Tad Robinson- Real Street, released on the Severn Records, Inc. label on September 13,2019, opens with the up-tempo song, Changes, written by Ken Saydak, and Tad Robinson that gets the party started.

Tad and the band bring it down a notch and take it nice and slow on another original song, sliding into Full Grown Woman, written by Tad Robinson, Kevin Anker, David Earl, and Devin B.Thompson, then segue into the fabulous cover of the George Jackson, Raymond Moore song, Search Your Heart.

Next on the playlist is the song, Love In The Neighborhood about finding love and temptation close to home, writtenby Tad Robinson and Steve Gomes. Wishing Well Blues, which Tad wrote with Steve Gomes, follows, and may just be my favorite song on the release, although there are many, as it flows effortlessly. The band beautifully covers the 1989 song, You Got It written by Roy Orbison and Jeff Lynne off Roy Orbison’s Mystery Girl album, then segues into the great cover of the Henry Williams and Charles Watts’ song, You Are My Dream.

The release continues with another cover, Make It With You written by David Gates in 1970 and recorded by the band, Bread. Coming into the final stretch of the album, Tad and the band slide into the original title track, Real Street, which is another excellent collaboration between Tad Robinson and Steve Gomes. The musicianship on this song comes fully into play with horns and harmonica blazing and guitar riffs that will have you hitting the play button again.

Tad and the band deftly close outthe release with the song, Long Way Home, written by Tad Robinson, David Earl, and Lou Pride, and John P. Bean. Tad Robinson – Real Street is about as real as you can get with Soulful Blues, so give it a listen or two and be prepared to be impressed.

Until next time, keep enjoying the music!
