Burnside Album Details
Mayes, Romi, Lucky Tonight
If Keith Richards, Joan Jett and Ray Charles could somehow spawn a love child, it’d be Romi Mayes. Hailing from Winnipeg, Canada, Mayes has chipped away at the rock and roll stone over the past couple of decades, and now, this Juno nominated, CFMA nominated, four time WCMA award winner, has done it again. Lucky Tonight stamps one more victory in this bad ass guitar playin' lady’s discography. Inspired by what another Winnipeg raised artist, Neil Young, did with 'Time Fades Away', Mayes recorded an album of all unreleased and unrecorded songs live and in one take at a sold out concert. This kind of risk exemplifies Mayes in all she does and goes in tow with her ballsy, heart on her sleeve and straight shootin’ attitude. Her raw, edgy songs take no prisoners and tell it like it is. Not at all a one speed driver, Romi Mayes can also gear down the big rig and hypnotize you with honest, sultry, sweet and sexy tunes that have schooled young men and made grown men cry.
