" Old Fashioned "
( Yer Bird Records ) 2012.
CD - USA
John Statz is a singer / songwriter and a world traveller. He is continiously discographically active, and his first album he has released in 2006. He also visited Slovenia and Hungary, and he is a owner of EP from 2011, entitled " The Budapest Sessions". He penned a songs in best old manner traditions, and his works are influental by the 70's period as well. Some similiarities comes to the kitchen and legacy of mighty James Taylor, but this is just a starting comparative touch, cos' Mr. Statz finds his own way of composing and performing. With minnimal following instrumentations, he reproduce strong emotionals, and present songs are mostly done in mid or slower down tempo. I would specially recomand a 6th track - " Baltimore" with hypnotic and repeatable listenable potentials, but all other songs deserves again playings. " Old Fashioned " is interesting and inspirative product, especially for 70's traditionalists and fans...
