Brett Eldredge : Songs About You Review

Brett-Eldredge-cdBrett Eldredge is releasing his latest album called Songs About You on Warmer Music Nashville records. “There are songs that just transport you back in time to a moment with someone you love,” said Eldredge. “Even though you’ve not been with the person for a long time, these songs take a hold of you. You might be having a fine day, then you walk into a store where the song is playing, and you’re transported into the past.” Songs About You features twelve songs co-written by Eldredge, including the previously released “Want That Back” and “Holy Water.” “I knew exactly what I wanted to say and what I wanted the album to sound like,” said Eldredge of the new album. “I wanted the album to be songs that connect us all in the human experience. These are emotions that are reflective of each of us. There are songs of solitude, joy, and heartbreak, and I like that tension. Songs About You is about the songs that instantly recall your own experiences. The songs that can make you remember exactly how you felt, or the sights around you, or the smells in the air. The songs that make you remember all the happiness and the heartbreak.”

Eldredge has been expanding his influence and the sounds of country music for some time now, and the opening track, “Can’t Keep Up,” continues his journey. With horns adding just the right energy and timbre, Eldredge takes us on a journey through a well-written selection with his warm soulful, country-tinged voice. Written by Eldredge, longtime collaborator Heather Morgan, and producer Nathan Chapman, this song sets the mood and energy for the great music yet to come.

“Where The Light Meets the Sea” is a gorgeous country ballad. The lyrics are thought-provoking and have multiple meanings. The song was co-written with Jordan Reynolds. Rounding out the sound are Ian Fichituk’s piano playing and Sarah Buxton’s vocal harmonies. Eldredge singings with heart and makes you feel the meaning of each lyric in the phrase.

Songs About You is contemporary country music that combines the best of other genres. For so long now, the country artist’s have been bringing in elements from music that feature electronic instruments and talking. Though there is a place for that stuff, country music has a long tradition of fantastic playing and singing. Soul music, jazz, blues, and R&B also have that history, and I love that Eldredge brings all this together with style. Songs About You also keeps enough country in it to instantly let you know that this is a country album, which is something special in my book.

About The Author
Shannon Smith
A fan of music my entire life. Should that be enough, well it is for me. Who buys music, the fans. Who listens to music, the fans. Like me, there are many like-minded individuals that daily search for meaningful and new music to add to their playlist, their soundtrack of life. A life without music would Bb. Yes, I have seen that saying floating around for years, and truth is, its #truth. So, may I introduce you to Shannon Smith (me). I am the editor. A music junkie that can’t get enough music in my life. A nerd (proudly), with some mad love for technology and design. It is that desire that sparked Sound in Review. Life is busy, the reviews are meant to ultimately introduce and briefly talk about the music. We have a section called SIR Quote: this is my way of saying thank you, to the countless artists making the world a place of expression. Show yours by rating each artists album, just as we have (collectively as writers), to show your support for your favorite artist.
