Inspired by greats that come before them, musicians are often drawn to pay tribute to those that touch them most deeply. To think you can take on one of the greatest rock bands ever is one thing. To take on one fronted by a singer as prolific as Paul Rodgers is another. Didn’t think it could be done, but Madam Company’s Melanie Denard is spot on with her phrasing and controlled throaty roar, that—like Rodgers—was made to go over big guitars! What a satisfying surprise!
