CD REVIEW 

 

 

The Artist I recently checked out the latest CD from singer/songwriter Steve Warner entitled Train of Life. Turns out Steve & the gang hail from West Virginia.

 

The band Standard 4 piece line-up which includes Warner on guitar & vocals, Nancy Lynn (vocals) Andy Mosholder (Fretless Bass & Cello) & Elliot Simon (Piano, Accordion & Vocals) Also present are 4 session players.  I would say the band possesses average to above average folk, R&B & rockabilly paying abilities. You will find many impressive musical licks along the way. Timing is spot on within the rockabilly, folk, R&B  grooves. Warner  can hold his own on the guitar & vocals, but more importantly Warner is a gifted storyteller with those 2 talents he is a dangerous artist indeed. The music possesses a Bluesy, Rockabilly, Folk-ish type stigma. All in all great music to eat a Sunday morning brunch to. Definitely classic Americana feel that that is timeless & very emotional Music will remind you of classic John Prine with a touch of Jimmy Buffet, Dr. John. The songs Simply put - all songs are fun & will lift your spirits. There’s nothing like a fun spirited musical production to get wrapped around – & this is one of them. I kept waiting for a weak song to come down the pike - I eventually gave up on that. In fact the songs kept coming - this production comes fully loaded. Overall very upbeat, positive, with amazing stories that possess incredible highs & a few serious lows. The CD has it’s share of happy moments. Simply put  - very much like life itself this CD personifies life experience, with music that are 100% honest, pure & a blast to listen to. The production is professional grade from start to finish. There's not many songs you can listen to time & time again. Has a timeless feel to it. which is not an easy thing to achieve. Overall this CD is very marketable. The good Honorable mentions go out to the gifted songwriting & storytelling abilities of Steve Warner. This is the guy I would enjoy sitting next to on a long airplane flight. This is one band that let's it all hang out & no doubt had allot of fun in the process. Folks out there who enjoy Americana, Rockabilly, R&B, Folk & even Rock that sounds in the vein of John Prine, Jimmy Buffet & Dr. John will fall head over heals with this CD. The bad Nothing to report. The ugly Nothing to report.

 

The verdict Train of Life by Steve Warner & The Rolling Coyotes has everything: good playing, fancy picking, amazing songs, heart felt vocals, & music that covers all the bases – Country, R&B, Folk, Americana & even a dash of Rock. All in all Train of Life has no weaknesses. The Bottom Line WARNING - If you listen to this CD – you run the risk falling in love with the music of Steve Warner & The Rolling Coyotes.
