As Listened to the new EP of Texas Crossing which features the vocals of Tiffany Valentine & Colt Buckele. The first song is called “Cry” and Colts vocals are raspy and Tiffany adds her vocal range to the mix which is a really enjoyable, and it has almost bluesy feel to it. The song and it’s contents which includes some serious blues riffs within and Tiffany tucks her vocals right between Colts raspy and gravely vocals and is quite good. With hearing this I almost ant to classify Texas Crossing as a blues act, but not, just good music with substance and meaning. The next song on this EP is called “Grandpa” and Colt shows a tender side of his vocal range and maintains a little gritty through it, but remains to be a real good slow ballad, and is rather catchy and contagious. The Orchestration on the song is really smooth and I am a real sucker for ballads and this song has got to be one of my favorites in recent memory. The next song is called “Here I Am” and the sound of this is phenomenal, the guitar work and Tiffany on vocals bring in the element of good country music and her vocals are very unique and I really like the song, it has a approach that Tiffany & Colt bring to the table of country music that I haven’t heard in music and is rather enjoyable to the ears. The strings in the song were excellent and really enjoyable & soothing and to hear such a awesome sound emitting from my speakers. Between Colt & Tiffany they have a chemistry that adds true believability to what they are singing. As I listened to this marvelous sound that was before me the song that came across my speakers was a really great sounding song called “The other Side Of Heaven” and Colts vocals once again struck the right chord with me. The song an emotional kind of song that really is truthful & honest and brings in the element of touch and feel and this is yet another song that I really enjoyed. Texas Crossing has got a unique sound that is brutally honest and I really enjoy having the pleasure of reviewing this solid sounding music album. With the last song on the EP called “It’s all Over” Colt has a very distinctive sound that stands alone, meaning there is no one that I can actually compare it to, and Tiffany once again lends her beautiful vocals to the mix and makes once again a superb and fine touched love song. With that all being said I want to hear more from the band called Texas Crossing, five songs isn’t nearly enough to say a whole lot, however with what I heard on this super great and enjoyable, EP Texas Crossing has a sound all their own and makes me wish to hear more. The whole EP is filled with passion and love and all comes from the heart of it’s writers Colt & Tiffany. My many thanks to Tiffany & Colt who never gave up on me, they have been relentless in pursuing me in getting me to write their review of their wonderful and beautiful music. I look forwards to hearing & reviewing a full body of Texas Crossing soon and hopefully I will be hearing their music on my radio.
