Turn up the volume and feel the full driving beat of the title track, then continue your journey with the second single: Miles to Go, a rootsy cover of a tune by Samantha Fish.  "Vodka Drinkin Woman" makes you wonder if you're back in the USSR or in a blues club watching the legendary Howlin' Wolf.  Riverside Child tells a compelling personal story that moves through misty enchanted adventures along the riverbanks with a “mind on a getaway."  The whole album delivers modern blues with an irresistible party groove and a retro rock ‘n’ roll vibe! You'll know what the waterstreet blues band is “Talkin About.”
