Hot girls and Rock n Roll. It’s the heady mix that fuels and consumes the male side of the music. But when you get a volatile mix as gorgeous and desirable as Lacy Younger…well, all I can say is, ladies, lock up your husbands; she’s apparently still wild.
Lacy Younger is equal parts country and rock n roll, oozing all of the sex appeal that just seems to come natural for her. On her new album, Still Wild, she runs through 13 tracks that will bring to mind several influences. She begins with “This Ain’t the First Time,” a strong opener that has the heartbreak of lost love but rocks in it like she’s got time for others; you don’t matter all that much. I really like her whiskey vocals in this one. At moments, she sounds classically bluesy and that makes for one hell of a song.
Her voice has plenty of range and can easily tackle many songs well. Her album is full of enjoyable songs that will age well, none of them bad. Lacy Younger holds nothing back. In her booklet insert, she provides the lyrics to her songs, having written 11 out of the 13 available. She also gives you more than enough photos of her in various poses. But more than all of that, she is a great singer and songwriter. Lacy Younger is a legitimate singer and belongs in the game.
I’m recommending a visit to her MySpace page for you to get a listen for yourself. But don’t say that I didn’t warn you because you’re going to like her.
I love Lacy Younger but for now…
I need a cold shower.
