Inside Out

Review by Gary Hill

If you are a fan of folk rock, country rock and other traditionally based melodic music, there will be plenty to like about this. The sound changes enough from track to track to keep it interesting. There are some standout cuts, but nothing here is weak. All in all, this is a solid collection of songs.

This review is available in book (paperback and hardcover) form in Music Street Journal: 2023  Volume 4 More information and purchase links can be found at:

Track by Track Review
Inside Out
A real country rocking, roots mode brings this into being. The vocal performance has a more pure country vibe to it.
Wherever I Go
There is more folk rock built into this. The vocals are still country leaning, but less pure country. This is catchy and fun.
Midnight Crow
While not a big change, there is a dramatic, more serious tone to this cut in some ways. It's another solid piece.
Whole Lot Of Nowhere
Another folk based song, this has plenty of drama and charm built into it. It's not a huge change, but it is an effective song.
Facing The Past
The musical arrangement on this is rich and dense. It has some nice use of more proggy things. There are some female backing vocals in the mix, too.
An energized folk rock sound is in the driver's seat here. This is another classy cut.
All This Time
A mellower cut, the country and folk elements are the predominate factors here.
Elephant In The Room
While this song is not a big change, it is a solid tune.
Going Alone
A dramatic country folk ballad, this is one of the standouts here.
Coming Apart
A slow moving, evocative folk rock arrangement is on the menu here. This a lot of style and charm built into it.
New Wrapper
There is more of a mellow bluegrass vibe at play here. This song is a lot more down-home. It has a grounding sort of feel to it, making it a great choice for closer.
