Listening to the music of Geoff Gibbons always recenters me, and watching the video Keep on Driving continues that trend. When paying attention the lyrics such as “If I just keep on driving, out to somewhere”, you can really feel how the road is an open world. Geoff Gibbons has an Americana style of songwriting, but it also is easy to listen to as well. These are hard times for our world right now and while we may be up in our own heads, we still have music and nature. With the visuals of the road and the cars on the road in traffic, it puts the feeling of certainty through the uncertainty of our society. The music he makes will touch your soul and have you not only look inward, but be optimistic at what lies ahead. When thinking about Gibbon’s idea of paths and the power of the road, it also brings the idea that we still have the freedom of driving down the road and have the windows down while looking at the clouds and being in a state of reflection.

Overnight Flight From Todd Warner Moore Shines Light In Latest Album

Todd Warner Moore shines light through his voice on his album Overnight Flight and entrances his listeners along the way. Composing several different types of genre of music over the course of his career adds to the variety and flexibility as an artist. He has performed in bands such as Acoustic Juice and Tea-Thieves. Overall his music has an other world sound, further alluding that his exposure to international music has aided in the well rounded sound he has within his musical pieces. While the majority of his music is acoustic based, with his voice and accompanying arrangements, it does not detract from what he has created. By hyper focusing in on a characteristic sound and composition, Moore deliberately has carved himself in his own niche. Some standout tracks on Overnight Flight include Mistakes with lyrics reflecting on life and the challenges that present themselves. He sings about from almost the soul’s perspective on things alongside generalizations about the experiences as well. Another beautiful song includes Rite of Rain which opens with all instrumentals and sounds like a mesh between classic symphonies and naturescape music. It literally sounds like the music you would play while running in the forest or sitting on a boardwalk.

Soul Numbers By Seneko Delivers Americana Authenticity

25 Apr

Seneko delivers Americana rock in such a way, that anyone listening will see that the vocals of Stan Olshefski is just the beginning. Although the track list consists of five songs for this release, it packs alot of classic stories and ballads for listeners. Callin’ of the Cause showcases the acoustic guitar and the high pitches of the keyboard for a full sound. With a mixture of applause and exaggerated enunciation of lyrics, this sets it up effortlessly in regards to the instrumental sounds. The mixture of the 1960s sort of doo-wop background singing style makes a cameo as well on the album. If you want to listen to an album that has some feel good stories, the sounds of Americana, and exemplary music composition, Seneko has just the order.
