FIREBIRD by Maverick
(Independent Release)

'Firebird', the powerhouse debut from Australian rockers, Maverick is rock music as it should be with swagger and attitude. Seriously, when you press play you cannot resist it's incredible draw. The band is comprised of, Craig Jovanovic on vocals/guitar Mark De Vattimo on guitar/vocals, Simon Hallett on bass/vocals and Nick Dudman on drums/vocals. The band's main strength is taking their blues infused classic rock sound and making it vibrant rather than just regurgitating tired old formulas.  This four-piece are an impressive, tight outfit and there is very little flab on this lean, mean album which packs a one hell of a punch. Serving up rattlesnake rockers like, "Free", "Break Me", "Black Voodoo", "Great Northern Highway" and "Silent Scream" while also dishing out a couple of laid back bluesier numbers like, "Obsession" and "Tonight We Die". This is a album  for music fans who know and appreciate phenomenal blue infused classic rock. The bottom line,  'Firebird' by Maverick is a tour de force of musicianship and songwriting influenced by the classic rock greats and adding their own greatness. An absolutely brilliant debut outing. Highly Recommended
