And this being the guy’s fourth album, we really need more than a few great songs to make it worth the cash. Harper is an electric performer and his risky but blistering live cover of Hendrix’s “Voodoo Chile” hints at his rightful place among today’s rock musicians.

Ben Shines in his own God-fearing way on Burn to Shine. The best introduction, though, is undoubtedly a live performance.
