Carey Ott and the Hard Ways (from the E.P. Scratcher available as a self-release)
A natural ease rises up from the rock’n’roll guitars that Carey Ott and the Hard Way use to cut into “The Hard Way”, the opening track on their recent E.P. release. Scratcher. The tune is a banner waver, an anthem built on three chords and the truth. A sparkle of notes and a harmonica moan surround the story of freedom as “Wild Stallion” breaks out of a small town while a solid backbeat counts down to match the blood pumping in “Whenever I Say Go”. Carey Ott and the Hard Way sample Vintage rock riffs for the songs of Scratcher, swinging with a sass in the sway of “Sittin’ on Top”, putting urgency into the strums of “Can’t Keep a Hold”, and reading between the headlines to find “Good News” in the glory of rock’n’roll.
