One of my greatest joys all of my life was sharing my finds with my friends. I'm now publishing my journey. I hope that you come along!

Josh Hyde - Into The Soul - New Release Review

I just had the opportunity to review the most recent release, Into The Soul, by Josh Hyde and it's quite nice. Opening with swampy rocker, Rocking Chair, Josh Hyde sets a mean stage with solid vocals and vicious slide riffs, paired with the fine backing of bass of Ron Eoff, drums of Derrek Phillips and keys of Jimmy Wallace. Cool opener. Painfully soulful, For You I Ache oozes sensitivity and stress with the wailing vocals of Hyde and really nice backing sonic guitar work by Hyde and pedal steel work of Chris Lippincott and contrasting brightness of Wallace's piano. Very nice. Stinging blues guitar work of Hyde on Lover's Curse makes it a standout with a radio style melody and particularly tight drumming by Phillips. One of my personal favorites on the release is Down On Bourbon Street, a stylish ballad with interesting vocal harmonies and a lightly salted Latin beat. Wrapping the release is Reasons Why, a particularly heartfelt ballad highlighting Hyde's vocals over an almost orchestral bed of music. This is a sensitive release with a little something for everyone.
