II BIG‘s latest CD on Russian River Records, “Face In The Glass” features 10 songs that bring home the classic rock and roll sound that the world fell in love with.
Like the tracks on their popular previous recording, In a Mendocino Town, the songs on Face In The Glass are dynamic and new yet the vibe is comforting and familiar, with a hard rocking edge reminiscent of the classic rock we all love, laced with more than subtle hints of country and blues. Currently, six of the songs from the album are playing on over 1,700 stations around the country.
The originals range from the mid-tempo country rocker “Katrina,” which blends images of heavy weather with a love story, to the inspirational title track ballad about looking in the mirror and believing in oneself. The lone cover on the new album, the Crosby, Stills & Nash classic “Wooden Ships,” features the signature vocal harmonies that define the current sound of the band; the Hansen Brothers’ vocal textures are beautifully enhanced by those of Oakland based gospel vocalist Alfreda Lyon Campbell.
