Playin’ With Fire Band’s Latest Release “Dream With Your Eyes Wide Open” Gets Praise From Jim Barrett

Written by on March 9, 2022

They say hard work pays off. They also say say you have to believe in what you’re doing if you want to be successful in an original rock n roll band. Success on your own terms is the key to having fun in a band and knowing what you are capable of. The Playin’ With Fire Band is a band very much in that view.

After suffering a terrible personal loss the band has come back with a strong new 4 song EP that was just released entitled “Dream With Your Eyes Wide Open.” This release has great songs, great vocals and solid playing.

The opener “Thunderin” sounds like a great missing Stones track. “Turn Me On” is an edgy guitar driven rocker track that reminds me of Faces and has that British edge and hard rock sound. The closer is a ballad called “Wishes” that shows off Kim and the bands strong vocals.

Noteworthy is the fine accompaniment of Al Kash on Drums and Sonny Speed on Keyboards. I have not seen the band live but after hearing the CD I have every intention of catching them perform and I suggest you do the same!
