Snew Continues to Rock it Out On Their New Release, ‘What’s It to Ya,’

Artist: Snew
Title: ‘What’s It to Ya’

Overall Album Vibe: ‘What’s It to Ya’ is the 3rd album from rockers Snew ( ‘Snew You’ -2008, ‘We Do What We Want’ -2010). The album was recorded at Total Access Recording in Redondo Beach, CA. with well-known producer Bobby Owsinski ( Jimi Hendrix, Elvis, Neil Young, Chicago) and Ken Scott (The Beatles, David Bowie, Supertramp) handling the recording and mixing. The album also features the band’s new bass player, Willie Basse (Black Sheep).

As I listened to the songs that made up Snew’s 3rd album release, ‘What’s It to Ya,’ it hearkened me back to my younger days speeding along in my souped-up muscle car on a hot summer night night with the windows down and the stereo blasting. That’s because I would define Snew’s music as, American muscle car rock n’ roll,’ with it’s wailing guitars and in your face drums, that’s all topped off with the vocals of Curtis Don Vito, that have the perfect amount of rock growl found on them.

Having also reviewed some of the band’s earlier music one of the things that I noticed different as I listened to, ‘What’s It to Ya’ was, instead of all out constant hard rocking tracks, the songs that are found on the new album offers up several nice tempo changes. Continuing on with my car analogy the band has found their musical gas pedal that knows when to cruise for show and when to push the pedal to the floor to haul rock n’ roll butt!

Review Tagline: With their latest release, ‘What’s It to Ya’, Snew continues to build up an impressive resume as a good time, rock n’ roll band.
Standout Tracks: “Release the Beast”, “Pull My Stinger”, “Tearing Up Your City”, “What’s It to Ya”
