Poppa Dawg

Smokestack Lightnin' Home Page -- The Blues Profile Page

Kelowna, British Columbia’s Rick Halisheff - a.k.a. Poppa Dawg - turns in a solid set of traditional Blues penned by the excellent guitarist and singer.

‘Nobody Here Feels Sorry For You’ bounces between Hokum and Jump; ‘Croc Talkin’, a greasy, minor-key funk instrumental features some of the snarkiest wah tone ever waxed; and ‘This Man’ is a towering deep soul number. ‘I Ain’t Leavin’ shuffles with Stevie Ray Vaughan power, ‘1, 2, Gone’ swings like Ronnie Earl’s best work and ‘Cool Little Number’ is reminiscent of Little Charlie and Rick Estrin’s hipper stuff.

Great singing, tones, playing, songs and a refreshing variety of approaches make Dawg’s self-release ‘Same Dog, New Suit a winner. ~Tom Hyslop (Blues Revue Magazine, August/September 2006)
