Singer/guitarist Danny Brooks proves himself as much a versatile soul song-crafter as he does a sturdy blues growler and soul shouter. The Texas-based Canadian transplant here serves up much variation within the ballads-to-blues spectrum, delivered in stripped-down duets with vocalist/percussionist partner Lil Miss Debi.  In addition to the title track, “All God’s Children” and the decidedly cover-worthy “Sad Song” stand out.
