Holy Bones

Review by Gary Hill

I dig the great rock vibe of this album. It has a lot of pop music in the mix, but there are plenty of other things here, too. It’s both effective and accessible. There is enough variety to keep it interesting, too.

This review is available in book format (hardcover and paperback) in Music Street Journal: 2015  Volume 4 at

Track by Track Review

Combining pop music with alternative rock, this is a catchy and quite effective tune. It’s a great way to start things in style.

A bit more on the raw side of the equation, I like this even more. It’s energized, but loses no accessibility in the process.
Holy Bones

Some keyboards on this lend some variety. This song has a more mature vibe to it. Still, it’s not far removed from the rest. It’s a great tune.

Heart's Desire

A harder edged rocker, there is a bit of a punk edge to this thing. It’s one of my favorites here, too. It’s classy.

Put Up
With a minor parental advisory on the lyrics, this rocker is a lot of fun.
More of a slow ballad. This is a more mature song, and a great one at that.
This is mellower. It’s also rather melancholy. It’s a strong cut, too.
A Million Moths
Arguably the best song was saved for the last position. This is more of a rocker. It’s dramatic and powerful.
