Hard Sweet and Sticky: The Bellrays

Tough title to live up to, but the Bellrays are up to the challenge. Fronted by the powerhouse vocals of Lisa Kekaula this California four-piece have delivered a killer little record that is full of R&B swing and rock n roll swagger. The sound is tight, punchy and performed with attitude. The band have a reputation as a fearsome live act, which is perhaps where the title draws its inspiration, and this album shows that the Bellrays are here to stay and mean business.
