Step Inside, Reid's 21st release with 33 1/3 Records, contains 14 original songs, which range from British and American blues based classic to a current blend of progressive, modern and indie rock. This album digs deeper into Reid's life story with quite a few dynamic pieces of uplifting and energy filled music. There's lots of tribute pieces on this one, too, including the time traveling title track, "Step Inside" (think Zep meets Soundgarden), a salute to blues legends galore (BB King, Buddy Guy, Eric Clapton, Robert Cray, Albert King, SRV & Jimi Hendrix) on "Solitary Soul" & "The Prisoner", Led Zeppelin, The Rolling Stones, Pink Floyd and The Who references are front and center in the energy filled "Reach", "Breakaway", "After Everything Is Said And Done" and "Swansong". The other half are upbeat tracks referencing groups like Muse, STP, Tom Petty, The Beatles, Bryan Adams, Foo Fighters, Queen and The Police. There's something for everyone on this one, so check it out. Step Inside is available Friday, July 21 (digital) and at CD release concerts this Summer. Pre-Order today.
