4 stars out of 5
The criticisms of Megan Burtt’s latest release will undoubtedly be few and far between. The album, aptly titled In Good Company, will help to raise funds for the locally-based non-profit, Love Hope Strength. The admirable motives of the project may be enough to attract a strong support, though it is the focus on highlighting the best of Colorado sound that will draw a crowd. Burtt teams up with some of the best of the local talent to create an incredibly diverse lineup of musicians, from The Epilogues and Rachel & The Kings to SHEL and Reed Foehl, to name a few. Burtt’s soulful confidence never wavers in the changing array of influence, holding strong to her powerfully commanding vocals throughout. In Good Company provides a brief display of the diversity of Colorado musicianship, with Burtt directing the showcase of funk, soul, folk and blues.
