Penny Jo Pullus
Lucky # 7 (self-released)

By: Geoff Melton

With a touch of rock, blues and even some Cajun, Austin transplant (by way of Canada) Penny Jo Pullus has come up with a superb collection of honky-tonk flavored country with her latest EP, Lucky # 7. While the gentle heartbreaker "Faithless Heart" starts the disc off on the right track, the second cut "Best Texas Grocery" is the album's high point with it's Americana slice of life lyrics and beautiful musical mesh of guitars (slide and acoustic), accordion and organ complementing Pullus' warm, slightly twangy vocals. With the possible exception of "Honey Please Be Kind", which is a bit too close to polished radio country , there's not a misstep on this disc, and the upbeat, accordion-laden "Cajun Casanova" and "He Plays" are other exceptional standouts.
