What critics are saying about Corey Ledet’s new album, STANDING ON FAITH:
“Ledet keeps one foot in the tradition of Chenier and Stanley ‘Buckwheat’ Dural while still exploring new styles of Zydeco.” (Richard Ludmerer/Making A Scene)
“This is a musician who has the potential to break out and take Zydeco music to levels not seen since the passing of ‘The King of Zydeco,’ Clifton Chenier. ” (Bob Gottlieb/No Depression)
“He continues to keep the timeless traditions of zydeco alive, mixing them with strong contemporary sounds that permeate the good-times vibe” (Don & Sheryl Crow/Nashville Blues Society)
“Corey Ledet merges pop, funk, R&B, gospel, reggae and zydeco for a sound that is totally today, aimed at a younger generation, upbeat, completely danceable and yet, somehow tied to his roots in such a way that the blues related aspects are not completely lost on the shuffle…His blending of musical styles feels like a natural progression… I hear talk about growing in the blues. This album has done a great service to the music…be it zydeco, blues, funk, R&B, gospel or pop. Finally, someone has figured it out. This is well worth a good listen.” (Bill Wilson/Reflections In Blue)
