Product Description

We could tell you about Bradley/McGillivray’s debut album, River of Soul, or we could let Marke Andrews’ 4-Star Review in The Vancouver Sun say it for us.

“Ruth McGillivray – River of Soul ****
Never judge a book, or a CD, by its cover. River of Soul, recorded in a Surrey studio, pictures vocalist Ruth McGillivray and guitarist Sheldon Bradley on the banks of a rural stream, and one expects a folk album. Who’da thunk we’re in for an hour of full bodied R&B in the spirit of early Bonnie Raitt? Things get off to a great start with the get-down I See Purple, Bradley’s (McGillivray’s songwriting partner) guitar and Steve Soucy laying down a good groove. Jewelry Box makes a shuffle beat sound funky, while Starin’ Down the Road has great acoustic slide guitar work from Bradley and a rousing vocal from the singer. McGillivray does her most soulful singing on I’m Leavin’ , a slow blues delivered with great feeling, and Ain’t Gonna Miss You, which begins quietly and ends with the house rocking.”
