Lourdes Duque Baron ‘Feeling Good’ – New Music Review

 “It’s a new dawn, it’s a new day, it’s a new life…for me and I’m feeling good. Fish in the sea, you know how I feel. River running free, you know how I feel. Blossom on the tree, you know how I feel. It’s a new dawn, it’s a new day…it’s a new life… for me…and I’m feeling good,” Lourdes Duque Baron pompously declares over a volley of chords, amplified resonance, rhythm, measure and melody in the dramatic introduction to Feeling Good.

Lourdes Duque Baron — ‘Feeling Good’

Let’s face it. Subtlety was never the 67 -year-old’s strong point. From the amazing cover of Amy Winehouse’s, Me & Mr. Jones to others like, Our Day Will Come, a “jaunty, twangy trip inside the psyche of every woman.” The come-hither baby boomer wants the world to know that she is here, bitches – and feels good about it! Hell yes! Baron has survived the toxic terrain of the 60′s & 70′s – the American feminist movement, where a generation of college-educated housewives felt trapped and unfulfilled. Today, post woman’s rights turf – is now ready to – excuse the awful plant metaphor – bloom again!

#TeamBaron knows that the big-lunged songbirds voice & sheer will sets her apart and they’ve taken every opportunity to show it off.

The Andrew Lane produced anthem is a simmering adrenalin-charged shot of pop & soul that proves once and for all that age is nothing but a number. Talent, passion & beauty trumps all – and a phenomenal, inspiring entertainer… almost 70 years old can in fact be very marketable and packaged…like so…fitting rather comfortably in the new age sound-scape that has taken over the music industry. Heaven is smiling …and with an instrument as powerful as this — well, it’s no wonder why she’s hot.Baron delivers tracks that reel in music lovers young & old — and you can bet your bottom dollar – long after the buzz subsides this Feel Good crooner…will still be winning.
