If you were going to gather together all that was and is good about music that is both robust and yet accessible, cultish and commercial, it would probably include everything from the likes of Fleetwood Mac and Heart to Grace Potter and ZZ Ward via detours into the realms of the likes of Joan Jett and various blues and garage rock artists.

Do all that, and throw in some great tunes, punchy and pop-aware songs full of blues, bluster, and rock swagger but with a sheen and polish that only the modern age could bring, and you’d have a something a bit special.

Do all that, and you would have an album like Even If It Kills Me. But also, you would be wasting your time, Charlie PS has got their first!
