HEAR THE CRITICS SOUND OFF ABOUT THE VOODOO KINGS!

“Mileage” is:

~American pop rock woven with a country twang produces a good aroma on the Voodoo Kings‘ six-track third release, Mileage. Songwriting is key to these Chicagoans, led by founder Michael Kranicke. The band stirs up memories of Pure Prairie League, Tom Petty, Afghan Whigs, and Wallflowers. The poppy jingle of “I Don’t Mind,” the slide guitar in “Talk To Me,” and the lush harmonies of “Compromise” bounce along nicely. The Voodoo Kings saves the best for last with “Strong Will Survive.” Its emotive vocals and inspirational piano complete a satisfyingly diverse album. A true taste of the Americana musical pie.
