“She’s A Little Bit Of Everything” is a classic blues rocker that goes straight to your legs from the first bar and eats into your auditory canals. The distinctive voice of new singer and guitarist Scott Holt, lush guitar riffs and a grooving beat form the ingredients for another fan favourite in typical FOGHAT sound garb. The song was co-written by Kim Simmonds of Savoy Brown, a good friend of FOGHAT, sending the lyrics and some basic tracks before Kim sadly passed away in December 2022.
Sonic Mojo”, the first new studio album in seven years, offers exactly what the loyal FOGHAT fan base has come to expect from their favourite band.
From the first notes of their 1972 self-titled classic, through their bombastic multi-platinum gem “Foghat Live” (1977) and 2016’s slide guitar-drenched “Under The Influence”, to their forthcoming album “Sonic Mojo”, FOGHAT have always been all about the music. Music that is played loud. Music that is played live. Music that makes you want to move.
“Sonic Mojo” was recorded by founding member and drummer Roger Earl, his longtime FOGHAT companions guitarist Bryan Bassett (Wild Cherry, Molly Hatchet) and Rodney O’Quinn (Pat Travers Band) on bass, and with new singer and guitarist Scott Holt (Buddy Guy).
Three of the songs on “Sonic Mojo” have a special meaning for Roger Earl, as they were co-written with Kim Simmonds, the man who helped Roger to his breakthrough as a member of Savoy Brown in 1967. Sadly, Kim passed away shortly after writing these songs in December 2022.
On their new album, FOGHAT also tip their hat to legendary artists who came before them, such as Willie Dixon, B.B. King or Chuck Berry, among others, with some great cover versions.
