{Review} Kevin Galloway – The Change

When you possess one of the greatest, most unique and powerful voices in music it can be difficult to find your own sound and style.  Thankfully, Kevin Galloway discovered what his true style during his Uncle Lucius days.  With his debut solo record, The Change, Galloway has refined that sound, tamped down the jam-bandy aspects, honed in on the country, turned up the soul and cranked out a gem of an album that is one of the year’s best (at this juncture, the best) and a testament to the self-described Gulf Country Soul sound he was seeking.

Galloway’s powerful vocals drive each song and provide them the proper gravitas to match the lyrics he has strained from his real life’s experiences.  These songs are unmistakably positive and affirming. Galloway is at peace with his place as an artist and his place as a man, father, husband.  Those elements have never failed to make a great record.  “Don’t It Feel Good To Smile” proclaims how good the life he’s found is and in it there’s a piece of each of our lives striving for satisfaction.  It’s a knowing contract with perfection that we’ll never achieve, but know that just working on it is just fine.  Galloway is confident, romantic, soulful, thoughtful and commanding. Allman-esque guitar solos have been replaced in some aspects with copious, but tasty use of steel guitar and keys.

It’s a balanced, country sound that evokes Don Williams with Otis Redding’s voice.  In fact, that’s a good description of this entire project.  It’s as if some country songwriters got together and threw their best work into one album and then called up the best soul singer they could think of to sing the hell out of it.  Just so happens, those songwriters and that singer are one in the same, Kevin Galloway.  This album is a love letter to Galloway’s wife, life and music.  We should all be thankful that artists like Kevin Galloway open themselves up enough for us to go along for that ride too.

  29. I have to show appreciation to the writer just for rescuing me from this type of setting. Just after scouting through the the net and getting strategies which were not productive, I was thinking my entire life was gone. Living devoid of the strategies to the problems you’ve resolved through your good write-up is a crucial case, as well as ones which could have adversely affected my career if I hadn’t encountered the website. That capability and kindness in maneuvering the whole thing was very useful. I’m not sure what I would have done if I hadn’t come across such a thing like this. I’m able to now look forward to my future. Thank you so much for your professional and result oriented help. I will not hesitate to propose your site to anyone who ought to have care about this area.
