S.S. Odyssey “Dear Theo”

Woah…S.S. Odyssey is a wondrous musical find. “Dear Theo” is a pillowy and soft spoken gem. The vocal delivery, inflection of the lyrics, and harmonies sit neatly wrapped by a well-thought production. Each musician respects the space of the others, which allows the song to breathe. Even the guitar plucks hint at a cosmic compliment to the overall theme. This is a production and performance worthy of standing up and taking notice. Beautifully done.

 
 

Amberlee “What A Pity”

Amberlee is a modern day Patsy Cline. Her latest release, “What a Pity,” is a touching and timeless tune. We review a lot of music, but Amberlee embodies the country and Americana vibe in a way few can. Her vocals are perfectly captured, and the production is vintage-tinged and sweet. The lap steel weeps, and phrases like “lickety-split” weave through an old fashion strum along. If you enjoy top-notch talent, then Amberlee is a great addition to your playlist.

 
 

The Brookses “If Tears Were Whiskey”

Grab your drink, get off that bar stool, and dance along to The Brookses and “If Tears Were Whiskey.” This father-daughter duo has us clapping and stomping along to their super-catchy blend of country, folk, and Americana. Their debut LP Lucky Charm is worthy of a good rocking chair listen. With the bond of family working for them, father Jim and daughter Meg have put their stamp on a classic sound. This is great music that needs to be heard. Enjoy.
