CD reviews for John Berry

What I Love the Most CD review - What I Love the Most
On his first release in four years, powerhouse vocalist John Berry sounds like he hasn't lost a step. Long revered for his soulful pipes and heartfelt songwriting, Berry keeps that candle lit and burning bright throughout a 10-track selection that taps into warm, radio ready country vibes that fit right within the artist's wheelhouse. "She's Mine" leads the record off with a solid mid-tempo ramble that manages to toe the line between pop and country, while »»»
Songs & Stories
Whether you're one who has "taken a shine" to John Berry's music or not, you have to at least give the singer/songwriter credit for making a live album the right way. Berry's studio albums sometimes get bogged down underneath the performer's over-the-top sentimentalism, but with a satchel full of funny stories, plus live audiences to keep him on track, this collection presents the man as a likable entertainer. Recorded at various tour stops between Bakersfield and Kalamazoo, this album leaves »»»
All The Way To There
John Berry recorded this latest in the basement of his Athens, Ga. home, and while it doesn't exactly sound homemade, it does retain a little more warmth than your average slick studio creation.

These are the touchstones of country , the guys who made country music what it was and still is (or maybe can be). When these folks would sing about being down-and-out and the rough-and-tumble, they knew of what they were singing about. Fast forward a few years to the country singers of today. »»»
Concert Review: Rising Appalachia buck the mainsteam, and that's fine with them – Rising Appalachia would not be accused of being in the musical mainstream. Not too many bands who combine folk and Appalachian sounds with new world music could possibly be. And that suits the sister-led duo of Chloe Smith and Leah Song just fine. In fact, at one point, Chloe made it clear she did not embrace radio play as a sign of success... »»»
Concert Review: Bingham plays with something to prove – Ryan Bingham mainly focused on songs from his sixth album "American Love Song," for this lively show. Backed by a supportive band that also included two female backup singers and a fiddler, Bingham's eclectic setlist touched upon country, singer/songwriter folk, rock and blues. Bingham reached for lively country sounds early on, with... »»»
