Review: Charlie Bonnet III – Sinner With A Song
Charlie Bonnet III / Cb3 Music 2017
Reviewer: Dan Mann
Okay I’ll hold my hands up and say I wasn’t aware of Charlie Bonnet III (sorry Charlie), but I initially received a PR release about a collaboration with none other than Tracii Guns.
I was intrigued as to how this would sound, as it wasn’t something that to me was an obvious partnership music wise.
Well having received a copy of the EP from Charlie, all I can say is what a pleasant surprise. This is Southern Rock yes, but with a sleazy slant to it.
Yes there are elements of the EP that have a strong Steve Earle / Lynyrd Skynyrd feel to them, but hey that’s kind of to be expected when it comes to anything Southern Rock.
With strong melodies and insightful writing it’s a real pleasure to listen to.
For me personally, the two stand out tracks, of the six that are on the EP, are ‘Restless And Reckless‘ & ‘Heading Home‘.
It would certainly be good to hear a full album’s worth of this material. For Southern Rock fans, it’s certainly worth checking out.
