Cork chanteuse, Aine Duffy isn’t exactly your run of the mill singer/songwriter. She insists on rocking out. That is very much evident from the first track of her debut album.
Duffy’s music can be described as a hint of Kate Bush with a dash of Janis Joplin, a cup full of Zeppelin and finished with a splash of twenty first century dance. Perhaps someone has also been listening to Sophie B Hawkins? The album grabs you, shakes you and makes sure you get your weekly dose of rock.
One of the standout tracks ‘Ask John’, is already released as a single, receiving airplay on both sides of the Atlantic. Duffy is quickly gaining the respect of industry and fans alike and has already a dedicated fan base in L.A. and N.Y.C.
Good musicianship, good arrangements, good beats, ‘Put Your Money On’ is a decent first album and a great starting point for Duffy.
