REVIEW album 7Horse Livin' In A Bitch Of A World

7Horse Rock n' Blues Dynamic Duo

Livin' In A Bitch Of A World


Riding in at full speed since 2011, rock n' blues duo 7Horse’s buzz began with their song “Meth Lab Zoso Sticker,” which was featured in Martin Scorsese’s film The Wolf of Wall Street, and used for Fox Sports pre-game NFL playoff season, from their debut album 'Let the 7Horse Run'.

United to create a unique Blues Rock driven sound. A two-man band conjuring their own unique variation of Americana, classic blues and roots rock, 7Horse are an offshoot of the popular 90’s alternative rock band Dada, with group members Joie Calio and Phil Leavitt stepping up with a new raw, sound and approach. In 7Horse, Leavitt tackles drums and lead vocals, while Calio, who played bass in Dada, shows off his skills as a guitarist.

On their new and 3rd album, (the follow up to their sophomore LP 'Songs for a Voo Doo Wedding' which is more than solid in its own right), 'Livin’ in a Bitch of a World' we find the twosome bringing their best work yet. Bluesy, sexy, dark and rockin’. Proving that real roots rock is alive and well.

'Livin’ in a Bitch of a World' is not over-produced or complicated, it’s stripped down, with all the good parts intact. Highlights for me on the album include the songs “Two-Stroke Machine”, “Dutch Treat”, “Stick to the Myth” and “She’s so Rock and Roll”. But as a whole the entire dish was delicious.

Raw and raunchy, soulful and edgy with hooks galore and a no BS approach, the music sees 7Horse deliver their most complete album to date and proves that rock ’n’ roll can still stir the soul.
