Glenn Hughes – ‘Resonate’ – Album Review

At the age of 65, most people think of retirement.  Thank God Glenn Hughes is not most people.  At 65, this man is busier and better than ever.  Since 2010, Glenn Hughes has been one of the hardest working singers in the business.  He has put out 3 albums with Black Country Communion, 1 album with California Breed, 1 album with Voodoo Hill, extensive touring, he even had time to be inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame with Deep Purple…oh yeah and heart surgery in 2013.

After 8 long years since his last solo album, Glenn Hughes now brings us his heaviest rock album ever with ‘Resonate’ on Frontiers Record SRL.

There are 2 things that make this album incredible.

1. His voice.  The “Voice of Rock” does not disappoint.  His voice sounds just as great now as when he was younger.  Not many people can still sing with such quality (cough, cough Meatloaf) and he sounds better than most of the young artists out there right now.

Glenn Hughes – “Heavy” – New Single

Glenn Hughes, the self-proclaimed ‘Voice of Rock’ is back with a new solo album coming out November 4th called ‘Resonate’ on Frontiers Music Sri.  This is his first in 8 years which is way too long.  Glenn’s first single is out now and called “Heavy”.

All I can say is that this 65 year old still kicks some major ass.  His vocals just keep getting better which can’t be said for everyone that has been performing as long as he has.  I love the new song and now I can’t wait for the album.

“Heavy” is a straight up Rock song with some great guitars by the amazing Soren Andersen (I am a fan) and some drum work that is absolutely incredible…of course it is as it’s Chad Smith from the Red Hot Chili Peppers (I only think appears on this song not the whole album).

I like the fact that Glenn doesn’t sit still.  He just keeps putting out music.  His most recent work with the band California Breed was a smashing success and this album could be the same.

Give “Heavy” a listen and let me know what you think.

#TBT – Favorite Albums from 2011

To continue my Throwback Thursday of the last two weeks, here are my Favorite albums of 2011 (in no particular order):

Soren Andersen - Constant ReplaySoren Andersen – Constant Replay:  This is an incredible debut album.  The album name is accurate as it was on constant replay back when I got it.  There are so many great songs and no fillers.  I just love “Song About You”, “Black Lady”, “Lavender in My Calendar” and “Cold Shock”.   Soren has toured as the lead guitarist in the Glenn Hughes Band and played on numerous albums including Mike Tramp.  Put it on and enjoy the ride.
