EP REVIEW: ONE VOICE (SKYLER)




I first heard Skyler back in November 2011, when a fan video of "Any Stupid Thing" caught my eye on Youtube. Having listened to each of his releases since then, Skyler continues to grow as a songwriter and musician. His sound on this EP surprised me. It's still country pop, but with more production and special effects than I'm used to hearing. At times it feels a bit much. I first heard these songs live a few months back at an intimate little venue (Genghis Cohen), and was blown away by the material. Just Skyler himself, his acoustic guitar, and his voice. Skyler is one of those artists that sounds amazing stripped down. The lyrics speak for themselves, weaving stories that flow together throughout this EP. 

The way these songs start out makes you think they will be ballads, but the tempo changes back and forth. My favorite track has to be the first "Break My Fall". "Through the years, through it all I've been broken, you've been there to break my fall."

 
"Gone" reminds me the most of his old stuff, circa the "Take You Away" EP.

"Once In A Lifetime" has the same sound, with fun positive lyrics.
"This could be our once in a lifetime, all our dreams and hopes coming true."
"I finally figured out who I am. You helped me learn I could be a better man."

The title "One Voice Sound" leads me to believe it will be a simple ballad with a mellow feel. Not at all. This track is flooded with extra effects including a haunting piano.

I enjoyed the relatable in your face lyrics on "Let It Ride"
"You can rough me up, you can knock me down. Karma is a bitch my friend, it all comes back around in the end." This track  has a
big band sound, with clapping and a church chorus feel. It
reminds me of Hanson's "The Walk" album.

All in all not my favorite stuff from Skyler. Loved his last album "Restless Heart", more like the sound I'm used to hearing from him. But definitely worth a listen. Skyler is a talented songwriter and musician, and I believe he will go far.
