Howie G released this debut solo album on 16th January 2019.

 

'Lullaby' as the title suggests, is a more melodic sounding tune, again with some wonderful harmonies and fantastic vocals. A beautiful sound.

 

Title track 'Master Of The Night', starts as you would expect with some screaming guitar and a real upbeat vibe that just continues throughout before the last track called 'Mister Meander' starts with a piano solo until a thought provoking guitar joins in with a haunting sound before the track takes off with a strong mid tempo instrumental followed by the vocals when we are treated to a soulful and sultry blues number to finish off this album nicely.

'Master Of The Night' is a truly wonderful debut album by an extremely accomplished musician and TFM gives it a healthy 4/5. Available now, go check it out.

 

We start this album with a track called 'Little Miss Brandywine' which has a great classic rock sound with a G'n'R twist, great start to the album.

 

Next is 'Anytime', with its powerful guitar intro before the vocals cut in and we are taken on a different trip with riffing to die for.

'Walking With My Shadow' has a much more laid back acoustic start. Even when the vocals start we are still in that relaxed state of mind. It has a great vibe that builds with the help of some wonderful backing harmonies. This is definitely a chill out tune, almost gospel in feel.

 

'Wiser Man' has a guitar intro that welcomes us in before the vocals come in and we are treated to another classic sounding track with a hint of Santana in the solos.

 

'Get Down With A Kiss' is a full on rock n roll, boogie woogie blues number that will have you dancing around in no time. It is a hi energy, hi octane fuelled track.

 

'Haunted Heart' has a heavier riff from the start, and the track continues in that direction. Heavy dirty bluesy rock n roll.
