Fortune Child - Close to the Sun review
Updated: Mar 16, 2022
Check out Jonah's review on Fortunate Child's "Close to the Sun".
Gritty, soulful, and with a whole lot of crunch and vibrato, Fortunate Child will be releasing their new LP "Close to the Sun" in March. Hailing from Jacksonville, Florida, these southern gentlemen are bringing you blues-rock in a way you have heard before but with a soulful delta bayou twang to the dirty guitar licks that backtrack their songs.
Fortunate Child is kicking the door down with simple power chord choruses topped with lyrics and a voice that resembles a piece of sandpaper. Stories of dusty, dingy dwellings it's been shoved in and out of while trying to go against the grain. Their LP has the vocal power of a nonbeliever with a deep, sorrowful, and soulful belt crying out to God for something to save him.
Begging and crying won't bring you any closer to closure but lacing up those boots, strapping an ax, and turning the distortion up might. These rough southern beau's want to play stories of girls chased, blood on their boots, and beatdowns they had to go through to get to where they need to be. Rub some dirt in those wounds and lick the scars because Fortunate Child is bringing that southern bluesy dirt and throwing it in your face whether you like it or not.
