‘Makes You Stronger‘ is the third studio album from the award-winning writing team of Ron Sayer Jr & Charlotte Joyce, and a continuation of their blues fuelled style. The album follows on from Better Side (2011), Hard To Please (2013) and Live At The Little Theatre (2015). Bluesdoodles said this about the Live album “The night is full of energy that radiates from the musicians through the audience and onto the recorded gem that is a powerhouse of blues the rocks your socks off as this dynamic guitarist and vocal duo strut their stuff.” Read rest of what we said here
The album, out at the end of June, also marks a new phase in the Sayer & Joyce story as Charlotte provides lead vocal on all tracks, thus leaving Ron free to concentrate on delivering what he does best; guitar, guitar and more guitar! In fact the pair cover most duties between them on this album with Charlotte supplying vocals, Hammond B3 and piano while Ron contributes electric and double bass lines, percussion and additional keys as well
While you wait for the release you can check out Backbone the opening track of Makes You Stronger here.
On our first listen we loved it – Ron Sayer’s stupendous guitar playing opens with a sting building in power with Charlotte Joyce’s vocals gently taking command. Sayer & Joyce at their best – we now have the Backbone that Makes You Stronger.
