About Kenny Dubman & “Reckless Abandon”
“Reckless Abandon” is the first solo effort from NJ native and lifelong six-stringer Kenny Dubman, a veteran of 3 albums with NJ melodic rockers Prophet. Loaded with earthy, organic 70’s influenced hard rock, Reckless Abandon will most certainly fill a gaping void in today’s musical climate.”I wanted to make a song record first; making a guitar record was never really part of the
“I wanted to make a song record first; making a guitar record was never really part of the equation.” says Dubman, though guitar fans will likely want for nothing on this offering. Blending elements of Bad Company, Deep Purple, Kansas, and Lynyrd Skynyrd with subtle hints of Queen, Ozzy, Montrose, Pink Floyd, and Rush, Reckless Abandon pays homage to it’s 70’s rock roots while still forging an identity of its own….due in no small part to Dubman’s powerful, raspy vocal performances.
Lyrically, Reckless Abandon tackles some deep and dark subject matter; not much boy-meets-girl fare on this record. “I’m not sure where these song ideas came from; I feel like they were channeled through me rather than originated within….like I didn’t really write them. I think the great Tony Joe White sums this syndrome up best: ‘….the music is all given to me anyway. Writing and playing and doing music, not for the benefit of having a number one record, just to let it out of your soul, means somebody has fed it down to you.’ That’s right on the money”. Origin non-withstanding, Kenny Dubman has created (or channeled) something special on this record.
