Vintage Rock & Roll Band, The Great Fraud’s debut album, Brass Balloon, is a soulful masterpiece of musicianship, storytelling, and songwriting. With songs like “Never Trust a Gypsy”, “Let’s Go Out and Play”, and “Roll Down”, The Great Fraud paints a clear picture of adventure, folly, and hardship with their soulful music and descriptive lyrics. Songs like “Mystery Man” and “Avalon Fields” show the band’s psychedelic side and create an atmosphere of imagination within the listener’s mind.
Blues Rock Review had this to say about Brass Balloon: “The Great Fraud is a band with a great genuine sound that successfully straddles the line between classic blues rock and new blues”, and “it’s no surprise that Brass Balloon explodes with an energy that is so clearly inspired by iconic blues figures, yet powerfully genuine in the fire of its own unique sound.”
