From rockabilly to horn fueled R&B to understated ballads, “I’m That Way” is a new release by Beth McKee, acclaimed blues artist of the New Orleans, Austin, and Jackson MS music scenes. As a member of the band Evangeline, she signed with MCA records and wrote, played and sang on national releases that received critical acclaim and commercial success.
“I’m That Way” is a collection of songs written by Louisiana songsmith Bobby Charles, best known for his songs "Walking To New Orleans," "But I Do" and "See You Later Alligator." Beth has always been a big fan of Bobby's singing and writing and this album is a tribute to his craft.
What the Critics Say About "I'm That Way:
. . . blasting saxes, slashing and sliding guitars, burbling organ and piano (McKee leading the way on the latter) and earthy beats (from hubby/co-producer Juan Perez) all keyed to McKee’s naturally lusty vocals. -Steve Hochman OffBeat Magazine
Sometimes a collection of songs is so flat-out right all you can do is shake your head and smile. Which is exactly what I’m That Way makes you do. Beth McKee is a deeply moving Southern singer who loves the music of songwriter Bobby Charles so much she has recorded a whole album of his knocked-out originals, which just happen to be some of the best songs ever written.- Bill Bentley, SonicBoomers.com
. . . her soulful vocals make you stop and listen, turn up the volume and soak the magic up . . . This is one terrific album that I can't stop playing, it's that good! -Rick Meek Blue Suede News
If there is any justice, I'm That Way should open the world's eyes to the talents of both McKee and Charles.- Jim Markel Swampland.com
