ALBUM REVIEW: Sal Kimber & The Rollin’ Wheel – Southern Light

SKTRW_cover_itunes-3

ptw scorebw7Sal Kimber has taken the expansive, soulful route through country and pop music on her new album. With a strong backing band sparkling and shimmering with keyboards and some fine guitar playing it is certainly a warm, breezy and welcoming record that steers clear of the Nashville clichés and instead rides the more commercial currents of Fleetwood Mac and even yacht rock. Stay with us though; even though the pop aspect does become a touch too saccharine at times there are enough catchy and soulful high points such as ‘Stumble In The Dark’ and ‘Keep On Knocking’ to make this a strong release for Kimber & co.
