Chris Pickering Band

Big respect for Chris Pickering – his third album is wildly ambitious. Not content to make another album at home in Brisbane, he went to the source, recording at Ardent Studios in Memphis, Tennessee with Stax Records’ great Don Nix (who has produced John Mayall, Albert King and Charlie Musselwhite). ... But Pickering pulls it off, and that’s a fact. The result is a superb collection of soulful country-tinged pop. File next to Ron Sexsmith.
