My dear friend and very talented muso, Susan Lily, recommended Tyson Colman to me and Tyson very generously sent me this album. This is not necessary, folks, I want to help you guys, so I am happy to buy your music. I am not like a lot of people out there who expect things for free. It kind of dismisses what I am trying to do for you. Having said that, thank you Tyson.
I love hearing new music, though from what I am reading, Tyson has been around the scene for a while, he just hasn’t got the exposure that he deserves…so here is where I step in!
Shines like Gold – a nice upbeat song to start off with. I always think that it is the way to start an album. Lots of fiddles and twang.
A Certain Touch – Mellow touch here….I think that he sounds like a James Blundell here, and that is all good. An easy listening, hummable song.
From Now On – Title track, a bit more upbeat, clappable song, toe tapping and easy to sing along to.
Please Come Home – Probably my favourite song on the album. People who know my tastes won’t be surprised. A cool country ballad and definitely the James Blundell influence. A future shower song for sure. I will be requesting this one at Tamworth for sure.
A change is coming – A bit of bluegrass here, the Davidson Brothers and Mustered Courage would be proud of this one. Very air fiddle and toe tapping.
Long Gone – Tyson can get into the guttural vocals, and he does this in the almost power ballad. Toes are tapping and I am humming. Great guitar on this one.
You know you wanna – Uptempo, dance floor groove. Tyson mixes it up with this one. Catchy and shoulder shifting.
Cry like a baby – This is probably my second favourite. It is almost Celtic Country. Tyson’s voice can vary so much. I love this song.
You’re the Reason – another favourite. I am a ballad girl, and I do not apologise for this. However, even his ballads vary. Single material. Brilliant song. Old school country folk will adore this.
Gonna Get me a cowgirl: Upbeat song, Keith Urban beat.
But I love him: Sad song. All true story in today’s society. Thank you Tyson for singing a song about this tragic occurrence in today’s society.
Just Can’t do it: Tyson has a different sound. Sometimes like James Blundell, sometimes so original that I can’t pick up on it. I love the fiddle on this song. Awesome song to finish the album.
I love hearing about different artists. It makes my day. Well done, Tyson, I hope that your success continues and I hope that I catch up with you in Tamworth.
