EP Review: Katharine Timoney - Guilty Sin.

Katherine Timoney (vcl); John McCullough (keys); Dan McGeown (bs); Marty McCloskey (dms).
Katharine Timoney is an accomplished jazz and soul singer songwriter from Belfast. On this showing she deserves to be heard further afield than her native city where she is rapidly becoming well established at various clubs and festivals and on local radio.
A raunchy, no nonsense voice - is it my imagination or is there a touch of early Amy in there?- whatever, Ms Timoney hits you from bar one! 
Apart from the voice (a little bit Bonnie Raitt in there too) McCullough's bluesy piano work adds to the ambience, McLoskey's drums suggest what River Dance might have been like if it had been created in Memphis or Detroit and, although McGeown's bass isn't immediately noticeable it would have been if it wasn't there! The songs are powerful, and yet quirky, recounting tales of tumultuous relationships, betrayal and desire.  Experiences we all can relate to at some point in our lives. Timoney nails them!
