ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
He was born by the river, in a little tent. No, wait, that was Sam Cooke. JT was born by a river; the Mississippi, to be exact. The Louisiana native was born in Baton Rouge and now resides in Los Angeles.

But that's not the important part of the story. The important part doesn't start until college, when he first picks up the guitar. And it really starts to get interesting when he writes his first song a few years later.

In a crowded singer-songwriter niche, Spangler stands out with catchy melodies and straightforward lyrics. His passion is the study of humanity and social interaction and his hope is that these songs will add perspective for anyone who's ever been in a relationship (good, bad, or other).

Money!
I love this album. I am a long time fan of JT; I spent many nights in College going to watch JT sing. It was so amazing to hear some new songs from JT. This cd is nothing short of fabulous. It has made me not only a more of a fan of his voice, but a fan of his talent to put life’s truths in to lyrics as a songwriter. The songs were very identifiable with the bunt truth and put out there like only JT could. I can’t wait to hear the next album.

Brian Williams

Looking forward to hearing more!
After several listens, I have to say that the only complaint I have with this album is that it is too short. These are great songs, Spangler has an amazing voice, and I'm ultimately left hoping that we get more albums from him in the near future. "Love Songs for No One" is not only an amazing debut, it's also the most apt titles I've seen in a long time. Soulful, expressive, and often downright cynical, these tracks are a blessing for anyone who likes to hear beautifully romantic music without the empty sap of a typical pop love song.

I can't wait for the next one!
I liked the harmonizing and the acoustic guitar. My favorite song is "How Can I Miss You". JT has a great voice.

Steve

amazing album
I bought the mp3 version, and it is a great album. His voice is great, and the lyrics are different from what you usually hear. This CD is a must buy.

Also, for those who are debating CD vs mp3, the quality of the mp3s is great.

Esther Sherr

Intelligent music
No trite cliche lyrics here. JT loves a clever lyric, an unexpected twist, and a gentle wit that makes me keep coming back for more. This is a thinking person's music. The acoustic guitar goes down so smooth and easy, that when you get to the end of the album (too soon, JT!), you want to go right back to the beginning and start over again.

JT has a really genuine-sounding voice, too. Not strained, not "trying to be cool", not phony in any way. He sings the songs like he's really feeling the music.

This is destined to be on my top-shelf, favorite albums of all time. Amazing first album!

Beautiful Music
I've really enjoyed this album! It's catchy, clever, and showcases JT's voice and guitar playing very well. It's definitely worth picking up-- it's found a place on my regular rotation!

Bob

Well, heck...
I had so much trouble logging in that now everyone else has said what a great voice JT Spangler has, and how intelligent the lyrics are. So, I'll just add that I'm a drummer and I ALSO like the rhythm in these songs -- for me, it makes the difference between a good songwriter, and a great one. JT has demonstrated something truly special here. I look forward to the next effort.

Surprise Favorite
I have to admit that the first time I heard JT's voice, I was not a fan. I don't know why: despite having clear, concise control without sounding mechanical, I couldn't bring myself to sit and listen through more than one song before I found myself heading for the next button. This didn't last, though: I've figured out that it's JT's very slight accent that makes his voice incredibly unique and, once I was used to it, very *fun* to listen to.

It's clear that JT is heavily influenced by other solo acoustic guitar playing vocalists; what's also immediately obvious is he isn't a mimic. Even when the rollicking chord structure and picking style remind me of a John Mayer song I loved 5 years ago, JT brings his own distinct touch to the style. Unexpected choices in chord highlights and surprises in comfortable rhythms make JT's clear, concise playing stand out from the crowd.

My only gripe: not a lot of post-production. While I appreciate the very honest, organic sound of the tracks, I need a studio quality, heavily produced album so I can point to this one and say "nah, I like the acoustic stuff better."
