"A unique, beautiful and wonderful collection!"
4 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Gin Wigmore is known for her beautiful and unique rustic voice and it really comes through on this album. Definately a great cd for those looking for something real with a hint of difference.

Gin Wigmore at her best an underrated artist

Description

Holy Smoke was recorded in the same way they used to make all those classic records that Gin loves so much, with her and the band all in the same room together, face-to-face. And that band just happen to be The Cardinals more commonly seen employed as Ryan Adams backing band.

The Cardinals bring to Holy Smoke an intensity and musicality that lifts Gin's work to a whole new level. But up front, singing for her life, it's Gin Wigmore's raspy vocal style that defines this recording. The 10 songs on Holy Smoke - led by the unmistakable urgency of lead single 'Oh My' - almost defy description; a unique hybrid of pop, soul, blues and down-and-dirty rock & roll - often all incorporated in the same song.

Holy Smoke is Gin's journey, but she wants you to join her for the ride. “I'm in a new chapter of my life. I think I've grown up a lot in the last five years so my songs on this record, the majority belong in this new chapter of life, so they show a whole new side to me as well.”
