“Woman” – Bek Jones February 2, 2023

The first time I played Bek Jones‘ new single “Woman, ” I expected a kind of AOR pop-rock song. Why did I expect that? Maybe because I know that some of her major inspiration comes from female vocalists such as Stevie Nicks, Dolly Parton, and Shania Twain, and perhaps, unusually, there was an element of musical snobbery on my part and for that I apologise, because “Woman” is a mountainous, blues-influenced absolute cracker of a tune. Bek is a northern lass who says she has been a fan of “old school” music for much of her life, this song proves that point and also shows that she has great musical knowledge and taste. I think the track is comparable to Alannah Myles’s 1989 hit “Black Velvet” and Bek sounds a little like Imelda May fronting the White Stripes and let’s face it that would be special wouldn’t it? The guitar work is pretty classy too. This tune has left me wanting to hear more from Bek Jones, particularly in a live setting. Check the track out on YouTube below or click here to find it on all major streaming services.
