With a strong modern blues feeling to this coupled with elements of hip-hop along the lines of a Gary Clark Jr, the energy level is high and the amp volume is at 11.

With a strong modern blues feeling to this coupled with elements of hip-hop along the lines of a Gary Clark Jr, the energy level is high and the amp volume is at 11. The stage is lit, the platform shoes are on, the glitter has been applied, and this thing about to go down.

Somehow The Fey manages to evoke images of Lenny Kravitz, Living Colour, and even Prince, all while keeping the vocals in-your-face and without succumbing to any one dominant reference. A nice use of wah pedal on the electric guitar and a screaming B3 track keep the classic-rock roots steady, while the mix of adrenalized melody and hip-hop breaks bring it together as a modern cross-genre apparatus.
