“MAGICAL TRANSPORT”

I LOVE WRITING MY MUSIC ALBUM REVIEWS, SIMPLY BECAUSE OF HOW THEY ARRIVE IN THE HEARTS OF THE MANY I’VE WRITTEN FOR. MANY MUSIC ARTISTS, AND 35 YEARS NOW I’VE WRITTEN WELL OVER 400 PLUS MUSIC ALBUM AND SONG REVIEWS. SOME INDEPENDENT MUSIC ARTISTS AND SOME MAINSTREAM ARTISTS. IN 2017 I WAS BLESSED TO ACTUALLY SEE THE CONCERT OF MY LIFETIME. I ATTENDED THE MOODY BLUES SHOW THAT KICKED OFF THE SEASON OF THE HOLLYWOOD BOWL AND THE 50TH ANNIVERSARY OF THIS SPECIAL BAND, THAT HOLDS A VERY SPECIAL PLACE IN MY HEART. THE SHOW WAS PHENOMENAL AND I WROTE A REVIEW OF THE SHOW, AND GIVING IT HIGH MARKS, JUSTIN HAYWARD “WAS ON THE TOP OF HIS GAME & THE REST OF THE BAND FOLLOWED SUIT. THEY PLAYED THE DAYS OF FUTURE PASSED ALBUM FROM START TO FINISH. THE FLUTE WAS UNREAL  & I FELT AS I WAS AT HOME LISTENING  TO THE ALBUM, TOTALLY ENTRANCED AT THE CONCERT ATMOSPHERE AND SINGING ALONG TO THE SONGS I KNEW BY HEART.  THE  SOUND WAS UNMATCHED AND SOUNDED TOTALLY AMAZING, IF NOT BETTER THAN THE ALBUM & HERE I SAT AND BEING TOTALLY IN AWE ALL THE WAY THROUGH. WITH THIS IN MIND, FLASH FORWARD  2020 JULY I WAS APPROACHED BY A FINE GENTLEMAN NAMED CHRIS SPIERER WHO SHARED A SONG WITH ME AND WAS WISHING FOR A REVIEW ON A SONG THAT HE HAD CO- WRITTEN NAMED “WE WERE BORN THIS WAY/ WE FEEL THE FIRE” THE SONG IS A MASTERPIECE OF MARVELOUS MUSIC CO- WRITTEN BY CHRIS. THE SONG IS TOTALLY AMAZING CO PRODUCTION OF NORDA MULLEN & EMIL TEMELTAS COUPLED WITH CHRIS’ MAGICAL MUSICAL WRITING IT TOOK ON EVEN MORE STRENGTH. THE ACCOMPLISHED CLASSICAL FLAUTIST. HER NAME IS NORDA MULLEN & NOT PUTTING TWO & TWO TOGETHER I WAS CHECKING OUT HER CREDENTIALS AND I WAS AMAZED & FOUND A GOLD MINE OF MUSICAL PROPORTIONS. NORDA MULLEN HAS BEEN ACTIVELY TOURING WITH THE BAND THE MOODY BLUES. TRULY AMAZING TALENT, WITH THIS BEING SAID THE SONG, HAS A BEAUTIFUL FLARE TO IT AND WHEN NORDA MULLEN ADDS IN HER AMAZING AND MOST BEAUTIFUL FLUTE, MAGIC EVOLVES. THE SONG IS AN ALREADY BEAUTIFUL WORK OF ART ADD, THE FLUTE OF NORDA MULLEN THE SONG BREATHES NEW AIR.  COUPLED WITH THE AMAZING MUSICALITY WITHIN THE SONG TOGETHER WITH CHRIS- CO- WRITING THE MUSIC IT’S AN AMAZING AND TRULY A REMARKABLE WORK OF MUSIC ART AT IT’S FINEST. THE SONG ACTUALLY HAS THE ABILITY TO TRANSPORT YOU INTO THE FIELDS OF THE MOODY BLUES AND BEYOND THAT SOOTHES THE HEART AND TRULY MOVES YOU. AS FOR MYSELF I AM INCREDIBLY HONORED AND BLESSED TO HEAR SUCH BEAUTY AND WRITE A MUSIC REVIEW ON THIS SONG,  THAT NOW RESIDES IN MY HEART FOREVER THANKS TO THE TALENTS OF CHRIS SPIERER & NORDA MULLEN & EMIL TEMELTAS THAT TOOK ME TO THAT SPECIAL PLACE IN TIME, WHERE IMAGINATION IS FULL OF SPLENDOR AND FLAVORED WITH MOST CHERISHED MEMORIES THAT WILL LAST A LIFETIME.

MANY, MANY THANKS TO CHRIS SPIERER FOR THE INTRODUCTION OF THIS WONDERFUL SONG AND TO HIS AMAZING FLAUTIST NORDA MULLEN, THAT BROUGHT MY MIND & HEART THROUGH THEIR TREMENDOUS MUSICAL TALENTS, TO A SPECIAL PLACE WHERE TIME AND EVERLASTING LOVE MERGE AND MAKE BEAUTIFUL MEMORIES.

“GIFTED STYLE”

I have been most recently introduced to a musician named Steve Grandinetti he’s not just you every other musician. With one of the albums I had the real pleasure of listening to is called “My American Heart” an amazing & out there,  album Steve has a sound of jazz, and more. Every song on this album has a story, & Steve brings a sound that evolves throughout the album that is difficult to place his style in.  The first song called “Til the day that I die” the song has a pop feel to it and Steve’s voice is sincere and the harp along makes the song have rhythm and is catchy and has true flare. The next song called “All the Love” draws musicality in an almost beatlistic way, the song is soft & tender and has delicate vocals and Steve brings this into this song and many others in his vast musical catalog. “The lovers” has an upbeat ring to it, and has an eclectic sound that draws you in for more, in an almost jazzy flare up tempo instrumental song that shows Steve’s musical diversity. As I listened to this really truly musical diverse and really groovy kind of feel album the song “Like a Buffalo” where Steve brought in the element of funk and in a eclectic rap of sorts, and has an almost the sound of the musical legendary group “War” but has a real story to it.  “Another Night” ushers in that jazzy kind of feel to it but Steve adds his sound to it that makes it his own flavor, that has flare to all of his songs that is hard to pinpoint what kind of genre to place him in. “Love” the next track on this really good sounding album and the acoustic element arrives and slows the tempo down and allows you to really soak in the tender vocals of Steve, and who I felt Steve Grandinetti is as a musician. “Freedom” another song that has a feeling and a truly thoughtful piece of music that involves the spoken word. “My American Heart” a song that brings in acoustic guitar and really once again has the feel to who Steve is as a singer/ songwriter and brings in provoking lyrics. “Don’t Let It Bring You Down” another track that has a real 70’s feel to it and my ears kept reminiscing about the sound of Beatle music, Steve seems to have the ability to write a song that speaks to you and brings in that eclectic musicality that keeps you in the mix. “State Of Affairs” that has a sound of pop and felt like I stepped through the doors into the rock & roll nightclubs in old town New York. Once again Steve has a true message sewn within his music that one must really listen intently and really understand his depth. “Hang On” a song that maintains that 70’s vibe to it. “It’s No Use” a song that has a true emotion running through it and once again brings in Steve’s lyrical talent where he’s got a lot to say. “Let It Go” (the birthday  song) a small song that has felt like a real personal song written for that someone special, and Steve’s vocals are really present on this as I felt his singer/songwriter within this song. “Those Were Different Days” a really great and enjoyable song that brings in that tender side of Steve and his amazing and thoughtful lyrics. “Shake Her Bones” brings in that jazzy feel to it and has a real nightclub feel to it. “Livin’ The High Life” has a real sound that Steve has the ability to tell a story through his gift of amazing lyrical abilities. “Scrumptious” an entertaining instrumental song that rings out of the jazz greats hall of fame in a Cole Porter without vocals, and quite good I might add. “I’d Rather Get Stoned” a quirky and interesting song not sure what to say about this one. “Lhistoire Des Tambours en Amerique” a song that is an instrumental based song that adds to the album content and allows the talent of Steve and his drum solos never the less is part of this album. “Transmission From Mars” a song that is an instrumental and once again showcases Steve’s Drumming and phasing abilities and not sure how to review this one. “Caravan Of Peace” a continuation of the previous song that showcases Steve and his drumming & phasing capabilities. All in all this album is a very good album I found myself throughout my listening experience I travelled musically back to the 70’s and enjoyed Steve’s true talent that resides in his lyrical content, Steve Grandinetti is a singer songwriter that has true honest talent that is down to Earth and when it comes to a tender musical talent Steve has this. It’s been rather difficult to place Steve into one category or genre of music, however he’s got real talent when you hear his tender side when it’s him & his guitar and his true gift of lyric.

THERE IS A SONG THAT I JUST HEARD, WHICH IS A BEAUTIFUL AND TRULY A MASTERPIECE OF MUSIC. THE SONG IS CALLED “IF YOU DARE”.  THE SONG IS TAKEN FROM THE” MUSIC4CHARITYUK” ALBUM, WHICH SUPPORTS MENTAL HEALTH. THE SONG AND IT’S VOCAL ARRANGEMENTS ARE IN LINE WITH THE PLANETS AND THE SOUND IS TRULY UNREAL. THE LYRICS ARE WRITTEN BY ELIZABETH HERSELF, AND KARL BANKS CREATED THE BEAUTIFUL MELODIES THROUGHOUT THIS AMAZING SONG.  THE SONG HAS A ANGELIC PRESENCE TO IT. AN ALMOST CELTIC FEEL TO THE MUSICALITY. THE SONG IS SUNG BY A LADY NAMED ELIZABETH ERTEL. IF YOU ARE NOT FAMILIAR WITH HER TALENT SHE MOST RECENTLY SANG BACKUPS ON A SONG SUNG BY THE DAUGHTER OF ELVIS PRESLEY,  ELAINE PRESLEY, THE SONG IS CALLED “SCARED LITTLE CHILD” ELIZABETH ALSO DOES A REMAKE OF THE SONG “GIRL CRUSH”.

“HAUNTINLY BEAUTIFUL”

SOUNDWAVEONE

As a music reviewer and publicist there are many musicians that I have written music reviews for and from all genres of the business. When I started writing my reviews several years ago I began the journey of my childhood fantasies and dreams, Dreams of that in which I didn’t realize at the time ,being scared and not knowing where it may take me and how far. As a music reviewer I have been asked to write reviews for folks all around the world, and many famous, and many independent music artists not so famous but remain within the circle of all music matters.

With the slogan of my own company for the last 25 plus years,  I have been honored & truly blessed to have written music reviews for all music genre. It was told to me many, many times…” Focus on one genre of music, just write on…

“OUTSTANDING & IN CONTROL”

AFTER LISTENING TO THE ALBUM, CALLED “IN CONTROL” BY THE EURO ROCKERS, HARDL<ND, I CAN HEAR WHY THEIR SOUND IS UNIQUE AND DIFFERENT FROM THE REST OF THOSE OTHER ROCK BANDS THAT ARE OUT THERE. WITH THEIR SOPHMORE ALBUM CALLED “IN CONTROL” THE DUTCH BASED BAND HARDL<AND HAS AN TRULY AMAZING SOUND. THE ALBUM STARTS OUT WITH THEIR SONG CALLED “THE NATIONS BIGGEST ENEMIES” AND THE SONG IS STRONG & LOUD AND KICKS SOME MAJOR ASS. THE SONG KICKS AND BITES YOU RIGHT IN YOUR FACE WITH THE ALMOST RAP STYLE OF LYRICS & VOCALS,  BUT THE HARMONIES AND GUITAR WORKS IS WHERE IT’S AT. “ARE FRIENDS ELECTRIC” THE NEXT SONG ON THIS TRULY AMAZING & FRESH APPROACH TO MUSIC,  WITH AND EDGY BUT TRULY GIFTED SOUND THAT IS REMINICENT OF AMERICAN ROCK LEGENDS OF THE 70’S & 80’S. I HEARD INFLUENCES OF KISS, AND MOSTLY A SOUND OF THE PROGRESSIVE ROCK BAND YES. HARDL<AND BRINGS IN THEIR UNIQUE & UNREAL SOUNDS TO THE FRONT.

WITH THE NEXT SONG CALLED “THE POWERS WITHIN” ONE REALLY FEELS THE PROGRESSIVE SOUND THAT HAS A MAGICAL AND YET UPLIFTING SPACE AGE KIND OF FEEL TO IT. WHILE LISTENING THE BAND HAS AMAZING & REALLY DEFINED HARMONIES THAT KEEP YOUR EARS GLUED TO THE SPEAKERS & WANTING MORE. “HAUNTED” ANOTHER SONG THAT ON CAN FEEL THE HARD EDGED VOCALS AND GUITAR WORK THAT HAS A EURO ROCK SOUND THAT KEPT MY EARS OPEN AND RECEPTIVE TO THIS TRULY & HONESTLY PURELY DEFINED SOUND.

“DAZZLED BY THE PRESENCE OF LOVE” IS ANOTHER SUPERIOR SOUNDING SONG THAT HAS A FEEL OF THE 80’S POWER POP GENERATION BUT REMAINS A CATCHY AND FLAVORFULL SONG THAT I REALLY ENJOYED. THE NEXT SONG CALLED “LOVE LOVE LOVE” IS A TRULY AMAZING & TOTALLY CREATIVE SONG THAT AT FIRST LISTEN I HAD TO PLAY OVER & OVER AGAIN, I HEARD AN ALMOST BEATLISTIC SOUND THAT WAS QUITE APPEALING, AFTER HEARING THE REST OF THE ALBUM AND SLOWING DOWN THE TEMPO TO A SONG LIKE THIS, IT REALLY SHOWS THE TALENT INVOLVED IN THIS TRULY AWESOME & GEAR DRIVEN AND SENSITIVE LYRICS THAT MATTER TO THE  BAND CALLED HARDL<AND. “PLEASURE AND PAIN” ANOTHER SONG THAT FUSES ROCK, RAP & PROGRESSIVE & AMAZING SOUND, THAT LEVELS OUT THE SONG AND KEEPS THAT AMAZING HARMONY LEVEL AT A CONSISTENT & SMOOTH TONE.

” STILL DREAMING” A SONG TAKEN FROM THE PAGES OF MOTLEY CRUE AND “SMOKIN’ IN THE BOYS ROOM FEEL TO IT THE BAND HARDL<AND HAS UNMATCHED & PHENOMENAL HARMONIES THAT TAKE THE EDGE OF THIR HARDNESS AND ALLOW ONE TO REALLY ENJOY THEIR TRUE MUSICALITY THROUGHOUT.

THE BAND WITH THEIR SONG CALLED “LAST GOODBYE” CONTINUE THEIR TRADITION OF SEVERAL INFLUENCES IN THE ROCK GENRE, BUT MAKE IT THEIR OWN BY ADDING THEIR UNMATCHED SMOOTH HARMONIES AND LYRICS THAT CARRY THE TONE ALL THE WAY THROUGH ALL OF THEIR SONGS & KEEP THE ALBUM WITH AN AMAZING FLOW THAT KEPT ME ENTERTAINED ALL THE WAY THROUGH. SOME OF THE SONGS AT TIMES WAS REMINICENT OF THE MUSIC BAND CALLED THE OUTFIELD, FROM THE 80’S BUT ONCE AGAIN HARDL<AND HAS THEIR UNIQUE SPIN ON EACH OF THEIR SONG ASSORTMENT THAT ADDS TO THEIR AMAZING AND TRUE TALENT THAT MAKE UP WHO THEY ARE AS A BAND “IN CONTROL”

“TOTALLY DIVINE MUSIC”

AFTER LISTENING TO THE LATEST ALBUM FROM SINGER SONGWRITER AND MUSICIAN SCOTT HOWARD, I WAS AWAKENED BY THE SOUND. SCOTT HAS A SOUND OF AMAZING TALENT, THE SOUND I HEARD WAS CAT STEVENS OF SORTS, HOWEVER SCOTT HOWARD BRINGS A SOUND THAT TUCKED BETWEEN PROGRESSIVE ROCK AND THE HEAVANS. SCOTT BRINGS IN A SOUND THAT IS “OUT OF THIS PLANET” I THOUROUGHLY ENJOYED THE ALBUM IT BRINGS HOPE AND TRUE INSPIRATION. AS I DID MY HOMEWORK ON SCOTT AND WITH THIS ALBUM ENTITLED “ASCENDED MAN” SCOTT HAS A REAL FEEL FOR WHAT IS SEEN BY OTHERS AND WHAT IS SEEN THROUGH HIS OWN EYES. HE HAS BEEN THROUGH A ROUGH ROAD OF LIFE.  SOME WHAT OF A AWAKENING OF THE WHAT’S, HOW’S, AND WHY’S OF OUR UNIVERSE & PUTS HIS SPIN ON IT THROUGH HIS AMAZING GALACTIC MUSICIAL EXPERIENCE ON THIS MARVELOUS AND BEAUTIFUL SOUNDING ALBUM. THE FIRST TRACK CALLED “COME WITH ME” HAS AN AMAZING LOVE SOUND THAT PROJECTS ALL THE COLORS OF OUR FABRIC OF LIFE. SCOTTS APPROACH IN WHAT LIFE IS, HE HAS A WAY OF PROJECTING HIS LYRICS INTO VIVID AND CLEAR MESSAGES THAT HE WANTS YOU TO HEAR. IT ALMOST SEEMS AS IF SCOTT IS A CATALYST FOR MESSAGES SENT TO HIM AND SHARES THIS WITH YOU IN A VERY CLOSE AND REAL WAY. THE NEXT TRACK ON THIS AMAZING LIFE’S JOURNEY FILLED ALBUM IS CALLED “LIFE’S NOT EASY” AND ONCE AGAIN I HEARD THE SOUNDS OF CAT STEVENS, BUT WITH A GALACTIC FEEL TO THEM, THE SONG IS SENSITIVE AND PURE AND SCOTT POURS LOVE OUT OF HIS THOUGHTFUL LYRICS THAT FILL YOUR HEART WITH JOY. THIS SONG IS MY FAVORITE ON THE ALBUM AND AS YOU LISTEN YOUR SPIRIT WILL BE FILLED AS MUCH AS MINE WAS. AS I LISTENED I COULD FEEL THE TOTAL INSPIRATION THAT BRINGS SCOTT INTO YOUR HEART, WITH TRUE INSPIRATION DRIVEN SONGS. WITH THE NEXT SONG CALLED “ILLUSIONS OF LIFE” THAT THAT JUST IS SO VIVID AND CLEAR AND SCOTTS VOCALS ARE AMAZING AND OUTSTANDING AND CLEARLY UNDERSTOOD. SCOTT’S SONGS THEY ARE OF NO NEED TO EXPLAIN,  ALL ONE NEEDS OPEN EARS AND ABSORB THE BEAUTY THAT SCOTT PAINTS WITH HIS GIFTED BRUSH OF LYRICAL CONTENT. “AWAKEN” SCOTT BRINGS HIS MESSAGE AND SINGS HIS DREAMS MESSAGE LOUD & CLEAR THE SONG BRINGS IN A PURE EMOTIONAL PLEA FOR US ALL TO AWAKEN”. ANOTHER AMAZING AND TRUE TOUCHING SONG THAT I FELT TOUCH MY HEART AND ALLOWED ME TO KNOW THAT OTHERS FELT THE SAME AS I DO ABOUT LIFE. “SECRET OF TIME” WOW! WHAT ANOTHER AMAZING SPIRITUALLY FILLED SONG AND SCOTT REALLY TOUCHED MY SOUL WITH THIS SONG, SCOTT HAS THAT AMAZING ABILITY TO TOUCH YOU WITH HIS LYRICS & AMAZING VOCALS.  THERE IS A CONNECTION WE ALL HAVE WITHIN EACH OTHER AND SCOTT CLOSES THAT GAP BETWEEN TIME, DISTANCE & US AND THE EARTH. “ASCENDED MAN” ANOTHER SONG THAT REALLY SHOWS AND ALLOWS ONE TO FEEL & ASKS WHAT IS OUR PURPOSE IN LIFE & HOW TO USE IT TO BENEFIT OTHERS IN THIS JOURNEY OF OUR LIVES AS HUMANS. “TIMELESS MIND” ASKING OF HOW WE THINK OF THE PAST AND TRANSPORTS YOU INTO THE PAST TO SEE AND FEEL AND EXPLAIN  WHAT WE FIND. SCOTT HAS A WAY OF SINGING THOSE AMAZING HARMONIES THAT BRING EVER HAPPINESS AND THOUGHTFULLNESS TO HIS MUSIC. “SOURCE” IT’S TRULY AMAZING WHEN I WAS YOUNGER I WROTE A SHORT STORY AND I USED THE TERM “SOURCE” TO DESCRIBE WHAT LATER KNOWN TO ME AS A HIGHER AUTHORITY THAN I, ONE WHO IS IN CONTROL OF LIFE AND LIFE’S DESTINY FOR US ALL. I REALLY RELATED TO THIS SONG AND SCOTT HAS THE VOICE TO CARRY THIS MESSAGE THROUGH HIS AMAZING & SO TOTALLY GIFTED TALENT,  THAT I TRIED TO REFLECT IN MY OWN LIFE, THANK YOU SCOTT. IF THERE WAS EVER A TRUE TALENT OUT THERE AND I TRULY BELIEVE BROUGHT TO US FROM “SOURCE” AND DELIVERED BY A TRUE MUSICIAN ACENDING FROM THE SKIES AND INTO OUR HEARTS IT’S SCOTT HOWARD, THE” ASCENDED MAN ”

MANY THANKS TO RACHEL DARES FOR THE INTRODUCTION TO AN AMAZING MUSICIAN AND ALLOWING ME TO BE EXPOSED TO SUCH DIVINE & THE TRULY INSPIRATIONAL & REINFORCING MUSIC BY SCOTT HOWARD. THANK YOU SCOTT FOR YOUR MUSIC THAT TRULY ALLOWED ME TO RELIVE MY THOUGHTS AND KEEP MY INSPIRATIONS REAL.

“SMELLIN’ & FEELIN’ FRESH VIBES”

FULLER HAS A SOUND THAT SURROUNDS YOUR EARS WITH FRESH JAZZ NEAR THE BEACH. WITH HIS LATEST PROJECT CALLED” CHAMPAGNE RENDEZVOUS”, AN EP OF SIX SONGS. FRENCH’S MUSIC HAS A MELODIC BUT HIGH ENERGY LEVEL THAT HAS A WAY OF LIFTING YOU OFF THE OFFICE CHAIR AND PROJECTING YOU ONTO A TROPICAL ISLAND CHAIR AND  AIR FILLED WITH THE SMELL OF MOJITAS AND CHAMPAGNE. MY FIRST SPIN OF THIS TRULY FRESH AND OPEN AIRED EP WAS AMAZING, I THOUGHT A NEW AND FRESH VIBE THAT BROUGHT FRESHNESS TO THE MUSIC WITH A PINCH OF CHRISTOPHER CROSS WHISPING OVER THE WAVES. AT FIRST I HEARD THAT UPBEAT JAZZY SOUND THAT IS A CONSTANT AMONG MOST JAZZ MUSICIANS, HOWEVER FULLER BRINGS ZEST AND CHING CHANG & ALIVENESS TO THE SOUND. THE FIRST SONG ON HIS EP IS CALLED “CHAMPAGNE RENDEZVOUS” AND FULLER HAS A CLEAN SOUND THAT HAS A PURE ROMANTIC APPROACH, THAT SWOOSHES YOUR HEART AND MIND AWAY ONTO AN ISLAND WITH THAT SOMEONE SPECIAL. THERE’S A FEEL TO FULLER’S MUSIC THAT HAS A MIDDLE OF THE ROAD SOUND THAT RINGS JAZZ ON A SATURDAY AFTERNOON WHILE ADDING A LITTLE MORE. FULLER HAS THAT ROMANTIC FEEL TO HIS STYLE WHILE ADDING FRENCH VOCALS ONTO THE SONG THAT ADD THAT EVER LASTING LOVE & SENSUALITY APPEAL.  THE NEXT SONG ON THIS TRULY VIBRANT MUSIC EP IS CALLED “I’LL LEAVE A KEY BY THE DOOR, AND THE SONG LETS ONE FEEL THE POWER OF FULLER’S LOVE AND ADDS THAT CONTINUED SENSUALITY FEELING THROUGHOUT THE EP. THIS SONG FEELS LIKE THE BREEEZE PASSING OVER YOUR SKIN AS YOU LIE UNDER THE SUN IN YOUR HAMMMOCK SOAKING UP ALL THE VIBES.  THIS EP IS AN ALBUM FOR LOVERS. THE NEXT SONG CALLED “DIFFERENT SHORES” FULLER CONTINUES HIS SOUND OF THAT TRUE BEACHY FEEL, WHERE FULLER’S MUSIC STEERS YOUR HEART INTO THE FRESHNESS AND ALIVENESS OF BLUE SKIES & THE SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA SUN. THE NEXT TRACK IS CALLED “IT’S JUST THE WAY THINGS ARE” AND FULLER SHOWCASES HIS ABILITY TO REALLY SING A LOVE BALLAD AND KEEPS THE LOVE VIBES ROLLING THROUGH AS YOU LISTEN.  “IF YOU DIDN’T LOVE ME” REALLY ALLOWS YOU TO HEAR THE TRUE TALENT IN FULLER WITH HIS LYRICS THAT TOUCH YOUR HEART AND FEEL THE SINCERITY THROUGH HIS SENSITIVE VOCALS IN A PLEA TO HAVE YOUR EARS ATTENTION AND KEEPS THE SWISH & SWOOSHING YOU AWAY INTO HIS WORLD OF LOVE AND AMAZING ABILITY TO ALLOW YOU TO FEEL HIS MUSIC ALL THE WAY THROUGH. I THANK RACHEL DARES FOR THE INTRODUCTION OF FULLER FRENCH TO MY EARS AND THANK FULLER FOR HIS FRESHNESS AND ALIVENESS OF HIS AMAZING TOUCHY FEELY MUSIC THAT I CAN TRULY FEEL ALL THE WAY THROUGH.
