Amanda St John – Big Strong Man

481854_261804930608716_174918498_nBig Strong Man is a big, strong song with a big, strong sound. Sounds a bit like countrified version of the band Pink Martini. The steel guitar insinuates itself nicely amongst the prominent big band brass, while the bass and drum bridge the gap. St John’s sophisticated vocals give it a polished panache.

This is a buoyant tune; a little bit playful, a little bit sexy and a lot of fun. It’s dive bar meets dance hall and it’s brilliant. It’s easy to imagine swing dancers crowding the floor when this tune is played. Noelle Ellis,
