Little Johnny – Billy Roberts and the Rough Riders

 

Billy Roberts and the Rough Riders Little Johnny song review

You’ve probably seen my reviews of Billy Roberts and the Rough Riders herehere and here. Here’s another – their new song, Little Johnny.

This slow rock song is featured on their third album, Greenbah. A dark and moody tune akin to that of Johnny Cash and The Eagles, I reckon.

The band’s distinctive husky voice, rhythmic drums (Ed Glass), whining violin and tense guitar (Alex Quinn) can still be heard – Billy Roberts and the Rough Riders are loyal to their sound.

I love the violin, it’s like a Gypsy/Country sound. Something that could be featured on the Thelma & Louise soundtrack.

A great listen – definitely check it out if you’re into a bit of rock and a bit of country.
