A wistful take on Americana!  Upon listening to “Seven Songs”, I was reminded of that honest, organic sound similar to that of artists like Mary Lou Lord or Patti Smith. That being said, you are able to maintain your individuality by blending a myriad of influences and forging an eclectic take on the singer/songwriter genre. This can definitely be heard in songs like “I Forgive Myself” and “Dying Breed”. I love the twangy Emerson, Lake and Palmer-ishintro in “I Forgive Myself”. This wry little shanty then continues via crisp acoustics atop drving cadence- very catchy.I must say, though, that “Stampede” is probably my favorite song off the album. Again, another flawless intro with escalating electric lead atop the backing guitars. This song has just the type of melody that leaves an impression on first-time listeners. All in all, “Seven Songs” radiates with pastoral goodness and boasts of proficient songwriting. We here at Shut Eye would love to feature you on the third edition of our “This Is Alt Country” Compilation  .-RYAN HOFFER,
