It’s truly amazing to know how much music is out there. With the surge of independepent AKA indie artists. Which in my opinion are taking the music scene by storm. I have written over 500 music reviews as of date and many more arriving daily, I am amazed and astounded how much amazing talent is out there and not getting proper attention. One of those amazing talents I’ve most recently been intoduced to is a country music phenomenon and extraordinaire Don Smythe. He has an amazing and beautiful sounding voice that resignates from his heart. Don & his wife Shirley are co- writers of their music & he also does other musicians music. I have been listening to the albums called “Country Songs From the Heart volume 1, and volume 2. What a tremendous awesome collection of songs. Don’s wife Shirley wrote the first song called “A Night Alone With You” and Don has a voice that is clear & crisp and the lyrical content of his wife Shirley and melodies of Don which has the makeup of legends. The next song Don sings is a song that the late Kenny Rogers sang from the year 1979 the song is called “Coward of the County” & Don puts his amazing magical and purely divine vocals on it and sounds amazing. The next song is called “Living on Love” a song Alan Jackson sung, Don sings this song & his amazing vocals bring this song life. The next song is called “Sing Me Back Home” written by the late legendary Merle Haggard, Don and his vocals and fine pointed musicality lends this song good favor and made me eager to hear more from Don. “Precious Years” another song that allows you to really hear and feel the warmth & sincerity of who Don Smythe is as a singer and really able to absorb & cherish his vocals. The next song on this amazing & truly lovable album is called “Always Wanting You” another song written by the late Merle Haggard” and once again Don Smythe shows his honesty and true feelings expressed through his talented vocals and smoothness that carries throughout his amazing music. Speaking of sincerity and honesty the next song called”Some Broken Hearts Never Mend” Don really shows his vulnerability and honesty on this song and loved this album from start to finish. If you are a fan of music of any genre you must seek this guy out, his name is Don Smythe & he has the touch of purity and honesty & love brought to the surface of his truly amazing talent and vocals& total musicality that make you ache for more. I thank Dory Young for the introduction to this amazing & truly beautiful talent that will break the surface & take the country music scene to a new level and show how much true talent is out there and Don Smythe & his talented writer & wife Shirley. With the two of them their music will be shining and leading the way.

THERE’S A MUSICAL ARTIST THAT I’VE JUST BEEN INTRODUCED TO, HIS NAME, ALAN STOREYGARD, AMAZING SIMPLY AMAZED AT HIS ABILITY TO WRITE A SONG THAT IS SO PROPER AND FITTING FOR TODAY’S TIMES. THE SONG I’M REFERRING TO IS CALLED “I PLAN TO BE HAPPY AGAIN. THE SONG TITLE IN ITSELF IS A TRUE PERSONAL DESIRE AND MAKES TOTAL SENSE OF WHAT WE ALL FACE AS PEOPLE OF THIS EARTH. AFTER READING ALAN’S STORY OF HIS LIFE AND ALSO BEING A PHYSICIAN WHO IS ACTUALLY ON THE FRONT LINE OF THIS CURRENT PANDEMIC THAT WE FACE AS A WORLD. I READ ABOUT HIS OWN PERSONAL SITUATIONS AND HOW HE SEEMED TO RISE ABOVE THE OBSTACLES IN HIS PATH. ALONG WITH A SINGER, PIANIST, MULTI INSTRUMENTALIST BILLY HOOVER, WHO ADDS HIS VOCALS TO THE SONG IN AN AMAZING WAY AND ADDS TO THE MIRACULOUS MIX AND AMAZING WRITING OF ALAN STOREYGARD AND HIS SONG “I PLAN TO BE HAPPY AGAIN” THE SONG IS A COOL BALLAD THAT HAS A SOUND OF DR. JOHN AND WITH THE INSPIRATIONAL WORDS OF ALAN STOREYGARD AND THE EQUALLY INSPIRATIONAL VOCALS AND PIANO PLAYING OF BILLY HOOVER. THE SONG ARRIVES JUST IN TIME FOR WHAT WE FACE IN OUR CURRENT SITUATION WITH THE COVID 19 VIRUS AFFECTING US ALL. THE SONG HAS A BLUESY PULSE AND CARRIES A RHYTHM THAT CRIES FOR YOU TO PLAN TO BE HAPPY AGAIN. IN MY OPINION THIS IS EXCUSE THE PUN “JUST WHAT THE DOCTOR ORDERED” THE DOCTOR IS IN AND HIS AMAZING MANNERS SERVING UP A SUPERB DOSE OF RHYTHM & BLUES THAT WILL BRING ETERNAL OPTIMISM FOR YOUR LIFE AND BREATHES A BREATH OF FRESH AIR INTO OUR WORLD THAT SEEMS DOOMED AT TIMES, AND ALLOWS YOU REALIZE THAT WE ALL WILL FACE WHAT COMES AROUND THE CORNER OF OUR LIFE’S JOURNEY, WHERE WE ALL “PLAN TO BE HAPPY AGAIN” MANY THANK YOU’S TO ALAN STOREYGARD AND BILLY HOOVER FOR SUCH AN AWESOME SONG AND I WOULD LOVE TO HEAR MORE OF THIS STYLE OF MUSIC THAT ADDS A PULSE AND A DOSE OF POSITIVENESS TO OUR EVERYDAY LIVES. I FOR SURE WISH TO HEAR MORE OF ALAN & BILLY COLLABORATIONS. I THANK THEM FOR PROVIDING OPTIMISM IN A NEGATIVE INFESTED WORLD IN WHICH WE ALL RESIDE. TIL NEXT TIME KEEP THE HOPE ALIVE AND WELL IN YOUR WORLD AND BRINGING YOUR POSITIVE SPIN INTO OURS.

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.
