Schubert Publishing artist: Nathan Jacques - Loud Mind - New Release Review

 I just had the opportunity to review the most recent release, Loud Mind, from Nathan Jacques and it's an interesting blend of acoustic folk, western and pop. Jacques has a potent voice and on the opener and title track, Loud Mind, accompanies himself on acoustic guitar with atmospheric backing by Adam Churilla and Michael Madill on electric guitar, Madill again on glockenspiel, Charles La Cagnina on acoustic bass, Kaya Shaffer and Ed Donnelly on drums and percussion and wailing pedal steel by Tim Fleming. Cool opener. Young Devil has real radio potential with a firm rhythm and forward guitar by Churilla and Jacques on pedal, all presented over a strong melody and nice backing vocals by Tyler Carlson. Bold rock rhythm directs Physical Forever, with Churilla, Jacques, Madill, Donnelly, and John Mueller on electric guitar, deep grinding vocals by Jacques, Donnelly on essential B3, Madill on vibraphone and stiff drum rhythms by Shaffer and Donnelly that really sets this track apart. Rocker, Dream, Dream Away has a driving beat thanks to Shaffer and Chuck Bartels (on bass) and nicely blended lead vocals by Jacques and Carlson. A bit of reverb saturated guitar pyrotechnics gives the track just a bit more edge. Quiet Mind is a solid contemporary acoustic rock closer. With just a touch of western, via Fleming's pedal steel work and the ongoing vocal blending of Jacques with Carlson, this is a solid wrap.
