Canada has produced some of the finest female melodic hard rock singers including Darby Mills (Headpins), Lee Aaron, Sass Jordan and Holly Woods (Toronto). Add Robin Brock to this most impressive list. With a dynamic vocal ability and entertaining compositions in her arsenal, Brock’s debut CD “Blame It On Rock & Roll” features both uptempo songs and strong ballads.
She’s Outta Control is a rousing rocker with Brock’s voice being most comparable to that of Holly Woods. The beautiful power ballad “You Lost Your Heart” features a duet with a male vocalist. 15 years ago, this would have had the chance to be a major radio hit.
“Rockin’ On The Airwaves” has a feel good vibe, toe taping backbeat and a very catchy chorus. The midtempo track “I Lied” is more of a heartland rocker in the vein of Michael Stanley or John Mellencamp. Upon hearing “If I Can Forget”, thoughts of the long lost classic Witness CD and the song “Let Me Be The One” with Debbie Davis on vocals came to mind. A country twang puts an edge onto the cheatin heart tune “Lipstick and Lace”. The musically mysterious ballad “Drowning” closes out the disc.
