Click hear for the song Strong….
Often times the guy playing the guitar in a band is not at centre stage.
While Bill Leverty has been in the band Firehouse from the very beginning, he wasn’t at centre stage, preferring to step aside and let others be a voice for the band. Choosing to use his talent on guitar to give the band a rhythm you don’t hear often these days.
Not so with all things new and Bill Leverty. Leverty has a solo project, and along with Firehouse drummer Micheal Foster, and bassist Keith Horne… that project is going Strong.
With every indication that this is a song by a member of Firehouse, it doesn’t take from the fact that it is a solid rock song, with a melody that will instantly take you back to your days on the Sunset Strip in Hollywood, or dancing the night away in Nottinghams very own Rock City..
HELL… Foster still has the hair to prove that this is the real deal. Leverty has a soulful, sometimes raspy, yet calming vocal. Horne is bringing the bass, to keep you nodding your head and tapping your foot.
If you were a fan in the 80’s and 90’s, you still will be. Give it a listen.
