Gina Sicilia
-Hey Sugar-

CD Review - By Bob Silvestri

New Jersey blues artist Gina Sicilia has a new disc out this one titled Hey Sugar. A nominee for best new artist at the national 2008 Blues Music Awards Sicilia delivers another great album here. Mature beyond her twenty three years Sicilia inhabits the songs here with a style similar to Lou Ann Barton and Angela Strehli. She knocks them out of the park on the tracks "So Attracted to You" a funky blues done New Orleans style, the smoky bar room piano blues of "I Pray Most Everyday"; the country blues number "What the Moon Could Never Do" and the standout "Bad Years Coming". Dave Gross plays some sizzling guitar and produced the disc. On a sad note Continental Flight 3407 passenger Gerry Neiwood appears here from one of his last recording sessions and adds his incredible sax and clarinet playing to many songs on the disc.
