Paul Zollo’s “Blue Railroad Magazine” 1/2014 Review

Bad Ass Boots * Gotta Give Me Something * A revelation. Passionate country soul that explodes from the first downbeat and never lets up, building a great momentum that expands over the course of these six songs, making us hunger for more. Billie Burnor has a big soulful voice: she knows how to really project a song right to the heart, as in the opening title song, which is all visceral yearning and power. It’s a remarkable melody, written by Burnor with Lisa Nemzo, who also produced, it’s unexpected and arch, yet burns with real passion. But there’s more: in addition to Billie, these Bad Ass Boots boast two other powerful vocalists and songwriters, Karen Mullally and Shazam (aka Suzanne Cimone). “Feels So Good” also burns with genuine fire; it’s funky but triumphant, a statement of power. “Thelma & Louise,” by Shazam, is a cool shuffle built on bluesy harp that unfolds the notorious narrative right off the edge, where it’s always bound, but beautifully compounded. This is visceral, powerful music.

Exciting
“I am so excited for the official release of this album.  I’ve known of Lisa Nemzo as a singer/ songwriter for 25 years. Now as a producer, Lisa has done a great job with the debut CD of Bad Ass Boots. I love the true clean sound of this band  My favorite song is “Just a kid from Texas”  sung by Billie Burnor. She has clean fresh voice, and is a wonderful songwriter. I can’t wait for the whole world to get to know these two beautiful, soulful artists that I’m proud to call my FRIENDS. You girls did a super job with this project. I love you both and …this is going to be a smash.. “
