After years of earning his spot as one of the top surviving blues musicians today and with six studio albums under his belt and another one releasing in just a few weeks, blues-rock guitarist Albert Cummings, formerly of bluegrass-rock band Swamp Yankee, teases fans with his latest single “Finally In Love” from the upcoming Someone Like You record.
Beginning with a kind of old-school progressive rock instrumentation, the track opens to Cummings’ rumbling vocals singing “I used to keep my guard up/Stick to my close friends/Then I left the door wide open/And you just let yourself in/I never saw you coming/Came right out of left field/Now I just love the way that you make me feel”, the mature confession giving way to a rock ‘n roll chorus, Cummings’ voice accompanied by hollering female vocals and bluesy slide guitar. “Finally In Love” showcases the blues-rock and soul that has hailed Cummings as a legendary guitarist while also emphasizing his ability as a songwriter, all packed into a wild, energetic musical romp.
