Victoria Ginty has recently released her second album, Unfinished Business. The band consists of Ginty on lead vocals, violin, and acoustic guitar, Tim Costello, vocals and lead guitar, Mike Ivey, vocals and bass guitar, Nick Lauro, drums, Chuck Weirch, Trumpet, and Wayne Cornelius, Tenor Sax.’
The album starts out with a fun and sassy title track, “Unfinished Business,” about considering the possibilities that might have passed by. It is followed by the gospel-inspired,”Take Me Down To the River,” about being scared into seeking salvation. Next is “Hard to Move On,” a true tribute to Ginty’s talent and that of her group. It is a heart-tugging ballad. Then, “You Don’t Love Me No More” is blues-rock at its best with searing guitar and horns behind Ginty.
“Every Night and Every Day’ is a slow ballad about love and devotion. It is followed by “Give It Up,” an upbeat number about not holding back. Then comes “Water,”written by Ginty and band member Michael Alan Ward, a dramatic ballad with some fantastic percussion.
“Sign Your Name” is a Latin-infused version of Terrance Trent D’Arby’s song and “Lying In Each Other’s Arms” is perfect for contemporary country radio. “Do Me Right” is a warning song in which Ginty draws a line for her lover. “The Blues Found Me” is a vintage ballad about how living leads to the blues, or the blues leads to living.
Ginty has a strong, sultry voice, but much credit must also be given to the remarkable arrangements and talented musicians on this album. It is definitely a must-listen.
