The Georgia Thunderbolts

EP Review

Whether it be on the banks of the Mississippi River or deep in the heart of the English countryside, rock ‘n’ roll lives, breathes, and burns on the outskirts.


Hailing from Rome, GA at the foothills of the Appalachian MountainsThe Georgia Thunderbolts rise up with a scorching signature style steeped in soulful southern swagger, blistering blues, and raw rock.


Out digitally August 21st via Mascot Records, the quintet’s self-titled debut EP conjures a tried-and-true spirit through a fresh fire. 


We kick off this EP with a track titled 'Looking For An Old Friend' which has a wonderful free flowing start and excellent vibe. Great vocals and harmonies backed up by some beautiful slide guitar and a strong chorus that will have you singing along in no time.

This is followed by 'So You Wanna Change The World', which is another with a fantastic vibe, very uplifting musically and vocally awesome. Next up is 'Lend A Hand', which has a full on rock n roll start before a great track develops with a killer chorus. A fantastic southern rock beauty.

'Spirit Of A Workin' Man' has a dirty blues sounding start before a more melodic song evolves whilst still maintaining a heavier backbeat, before we end with 'Set Me Free', which is a more funky track, slower and deliberate in the way it hits you. Again a very uplifting chorus musically. 

If you like your rock with a southern flavour, and are fans of such bands as Lynyrd Skynyrd, Blackfoot, The Allman Brothers, Blackberry Smoke etc then you will I'm sure absolutely love this band, and their self titled EP will be a definite purchase and played on repeat. 

Available as a digital download on August 21st through Mascot Label Group, this is a must have for all southern rock fans and lovers of just great uplifting music. TFM gives The Georgia Thunderbolts EP 5/5, a wonderful release.
