Angel Forrest- Hell Bent with Grace review


Angel Forrest- Hell Bent with Grace AngelForrest.ca Quebec’s blues-rock firebrand has been making albums for more than two decades, but has become more prominent nationally this decade. Presenting diverse, rockin’ tunes that have additional substance woven into their lyrics (menopause, mental health, relationships, responsibility, [maybe] alcoholism), Forrest has the vocal chops (some may compare to prime Alannah Myles, but I prefer Bonnie Raitt at her most lively) to carry a hard-driving album featuring an aggressive, full-band attack. A nuanced vocalist, Forrest spreads several shades of blues across eleven songs. With multiple Maple Blues Awards to her credit, Forrest needs to likely clear space for additional hardware. The party starts here. Highlights: “Bea” “Menie the Monster” “Grace” “Blame Game”
