Shane Guerrette is a new exciting talent based in New York. Having smashed the YouTube scene, receiving millions of views, he is now set to release his debut self-titled EP on September 7th which is produced by Bob Cuteralla (Erc Clapton, Billy Gibbons, Jeff Beck.)

I am a big believer in perfecting song orders for EPs and albums and ‘Nomadic Soul’ is an incredible opener. The intro really shows off the bluesy style of guitar which is a big part of the whole EP. There is a distinct lack of bluesy/acoustic rock within the mainstream at present, but I cannot see how anyone could dislike ‘Nomadic Soul’. Guerrette’s voice has a rough and husky tone, which adds another layer to the already impressive opening single.

Each song of the EP, although showcasing Guerrette’s typical bluesy vibe, has a slightly different tone. ‘Ivory and Gold’ has a slight middle eastern vibe with a nice addition of a strings section, whilst ‘Runaway Blues’ and ‘Good Times’ show off some slower but heavier bluesy rock.

This EP shows exactly why Shane Guerrette was so popular on YouTube and I expect him to receive the same praise when his music is released onto streaming platforms.

‘Nomadic Soul’ is out now.
‘Shane Guerrette EP’ is released on the 7th September and you can pre-order it here.
