BJ Wilbanks is the kind of smoky soulful voice that has been lost in the realm of rock ‘n roll. His new song “Don’t Fight the Feelin’” demands that soulful voice to be heard.
When we talk about the term Southern Rock, there are many that conjure up the long-haired redneck hanging a confederate flag out the back of a beat up pick-up truck screaming “Freebird”. However wrong that picture is, Georgia crooner BJ Wilbank’s blows all those stereotypes out of the water. Whatever you think that term is, Wilbanks offers an augmented version. His mixture of gospel, R&B, Motown, and Skynyrd is infectious and it shows on his newest, self-titled freewheelin’ slow-roll; best for a backyard Barbeque, as it is dancing in a sweaty dive bar.
