Chris Ousey has had an excellent singing career that goes way back to the times of “Monroe” and “Virginia Wolf” and along the way we have had “The Distance”, “Ozone” and “Snakecharmer” but he will always be known for the much loved “Heartland”. He is nicknamed “The man with the golden tonsils” and that is a fine accolade indeed for he has earned it. His effortless vocal range has gained him a top spot in the world of classic UK hard rock. Chris has also recorded two fine solo albums “Rhyme and Reason” and “Dream Machine”.
Jim Kirkpatrick is a well respected guitar player, best known for playing with rock band FM and completing the line-up are Billy Sheehan and Nigel Glockler who, again, have a fine pedigree in rock / metal circles.
“The Flood” have recorded their debut album “Hear us out” and in doing so have given us 12 tracks of fine heavy rock music. Incidentally, this is proper hard driving old school rock with a real meaty vibe to it. Songs Like “Overdrive”, “I can’t stop” and “Til dawn us do part” are fine examples of the quality shown here, but there are simply just no fillers as they move from one song to the next. It’s also a bonus to have the great Didge Digital (ex FM) playing keyboards.
It's about time we had a good original heavy rock album that is worth talking about, so, in their own words, just “Hear us Out” !!
