Review: Floramay Holliday – Song To Myself

Holliday’s low, raspy voice gets this album going from off with the title track ‘Song To Myself’. It’s bluesy, featuring a shuffling rhythm and a real honky-tonk feel (helped along by the brass band and tinkling piano). The sweet ‘My Best Friend’, about Holliday’s partner, is a lyrical standout on the album, imbued with honesty and love. As Holliday grooves her way into ‘Honest Man’, her lyricism takes the spotlight again with the opening lines ‘I love my mama and Jesus too’ immediately captures the attention. It’s another ode to her husband, although there is a sort of tinny-sounding overlay to Holliday’s voice that detracts slightly from her capable vocal line. Other cuts like the upbeat, catchy ‘Workin’ Man’ make this album a must-listen for fans of classic honky tonk and blues.
