Quirky? Rock 'n Roll? Blues? R&B? Multi-genre? All of this and more is true! Garland Burnette and the Cinders in its present form began in August 2001 when the core group of Garland Burnette (guitar, vocals), Mary Kay (bass, vocals) and Randy Blythe (drums, vocals) were joined by Roy Donaldson, an erstwhile lead guitarist coming out of deep-freeze (a self-imposed retirement of over two decades). Interesting combination? You bet!
This 2003 release is the first full-length, professionally produced CD for this band and is just right for those of eclectic rock-leaning tastes. Listen closely and you will hear the influences that were so important to each band member in the formative years of the 1960s and 1970s: Doors, ZZ Top, Led Zeppelin, Stax/Motown, Spirit, Lovin' Spoonful, Buffalo Springfield...the list can and does go on and on.
