Year Of The Tiger
More accustomed to exercising his monumental vocal cords both in front of Alter Bridge and alongside Slash, anyone who’s studied Myles Kennedy’s guitar skills will find an accomplished player who exudes emotion. While his first solo album dials down the crunch it’s far from a stripped back acoustic set. Here boisterous strumming, Middle Eastern picking and expressive leads on the soaring The Great Beyond, and the sweet Americana of Ghost Of Shangri La form the perfect backdrop for Kennedy’s once-in-a-generation voice. An ode to his late father, Year Of The Tiger drips with passion, invention and curiosity. We like it a lot.
