Rock at Night says about the new single, “How Can I:” “This single is a driving mid-tempo, honky-tonk, blues and Southern Rock song, a break up and trying to get back with her song! Cute lyrics, bouncy boogie-woogie on the keys, nice slide guitar on the break! As I listened I was dancing! So yes–expect to get caught up in hooks of this delightful, toe tapping ditty! Loved it!”
