After "Wild Cat" and "Animal", the French Véronique Gayot follows up with the next album with "Be A Man". In the ten songs on the album she covers the spectrum from traditional blues to boogie to funky elements.

Gayots is impressive expressive, energetic voice with which she gives the pieces their very own character and with which she doesn't need to hide from other blues singers. In the classic blues song "The Weatherman" she shows that she has excellent mastery of the blues harp, but uses it very carefully so as not to destroy the song.

In addition to Gayot, her musicians also show that they understand their craft very well. An example is the mid-tempo blues "Ain't No Place", in which the keyboard and subtly interspersed electric guitar solos are invigorating elements that are successful contrasts to Gayot's voice.

On “Right Time To Boogie” she lets the wildcat inside her free and then on “Do it Yourself” she lands in soulful realms. What's strong is how she weaves psychedelic elements into the blues on "Dynamite and Gasoline".

With "Love At First Sight", a languid blues ballad in a duet with Yannick Eichert, you feel like you've been transported to a smoky bar in the southern states. Here, too, their musicians show their class, as they really underline the sound but play their way into the foreground in short solos.

In conclusion it can be said that Véronique Gayot has a strong one with “Be A Man”.
The album is successful, which is also very varied thanks to the variety of songs is and will delight the listeners.
