Betty Moon – Rollin’ Revolution

(Current) Everything about this record from the art design to Betty Moon’s powerhouse vocals screams retro, and that’s not a bad thing. It takes a lot of courage and self-determination to pull up your Toronto roots and head to Los Angeles. Yet after years of struggling this side of the 49th parallel Betty has made her mark on Sunset Strip, establishing a solid reputation amidst some of the most competitive club venues on the continent. Her latest cd `Rollin Revolution’ is chock full of hard rock, heavy metal arrangements which frame her powerful vocals. She’s already made headway on the venerable KROQ station with this album’s first single; `My Stupid Dream’ and her second single; `Elergy’ shows she can still bring the intensity level down while still delivering a powerful vocal. It’s hardly a surprise that Moon elects to cover Jefferson Starship’s `Somebody To Love’ as she can be compared favourably to a young Grace Slick. Definitely an album not in vogue with current, Lady Gaga, Rihanna, Pink, dance trends, but somewhere on this planet, hard rock still rules and this record deserves an audience.
