Saint Cecilia was a hard working Detroit three piece band that drew from it’s Detroit Blues roots while creatively expanding song form and style. This power trio featured Todd Glass on Drums, James Simonson on bass and Brett Lucas on Guitar/Vocals. The combination of Brett’s Blues-based guitar with James’ Funk/Jazz influenced bass lines and Todd “The Thunder God’s” almighty beat, stirred into a powerful concoction.
Saint Cecilia featured eight original songs by Brett Lucas and two covers. The album features five instrumental songs and five songs with vocals. “We've decided to include more instrumentals along with vocal songs into our sets to get away from a typical approach. We want to try to continue the tradition of playing cool instrumental music that groups like The Meters, The Ventures, and Booker T and the MG’s performed”
Some of the highlights of this album include their cover of Detroit’s own Dennis Coffey’s version of “Whole Lotta Love” by Led Zeppelin; It’s Funky. They tip their hat to the Chicago Blues sound with Jimmy Dawkin’s “Server’s Me Right To Suffer.” Brett’s Washington Rain and Never Be are straight up Blues Rock at it’s finest. Instrumentals such as Do That and Oh Snap are uniquely Saint Cecilia. They even stretch out to outer space with March of Locrians. Enjoy!
