With songs as soulful as they are winsome, broody as they are bluesy,“Certain Kinda” – the debut album of Emily Gimble (The Gimbles, Asleepat the Wheel, Marshall Ford Band, Warren Hood and the Goods) – is a study in musical range, instrumental craft, and long, deep relationships. 

The three-time “Best Keyboards” Winner of the Austin Music Awards (2012-2014) and the granddaughter of one of the most legendary fiddleplayers who ever lived – Johnny Gimble – Emily foregrounds instead her unmistakable voice here, coaxing it into jazz and blues, vacillating between whispers and bellows. The song “East of Kerns” seduces the listener into a blacktop road trip, letting us gaze out the window with a heart full of longing and a head full of memories. “With One Eye” finds Emily defiant and truth-telling, belting out proclamations to a frustrating lover before giving way to percussive, sultry vocals. “Canyons of Gold” is an arms-stretched-wide embrace of growing up, with a touch of gospel vocals for good measure.

Title track “Certain Kinda” is soft and thoughtful by turns, assurances to a companion undercut by notes of ambivalence. “It’s a wonder that we ever made it,” Emily sings, but this album – cut, mixed, and mastered with the likes of Jimmie Vaughan in just less than a year - is just the opposite.
