London country rock singer Charlie Savigar has a soft spot for the Seventies. The title track of her Get In Line lifts a guitar vignette from 10CC's Goodmorning Judge and Francis Rossi (Status Quo) lends a hand playing guitar on Save Your Love.
Savigar got herself a Bachelor of Music from City University London, but decided that she liked country rock music better than Chopin and Schubert. She managed to transfer the Nashville vibe to the Big Smoke and added the quintessentially English sense for boogie and shuffle to equation.She names Bonnie Raitt as a major influence, but Savigar has the voice and the swagger to carve her own niche. Country as a genre has been struggling in the States and once again it's up to the Brits to teach the Americans about their musical heritage, giving them a shot of Adrenaline.
