Taking A Look @ "A Different Look"
Taking a soulful approach to his second album singer/songwriter Chris Chandler touches the musical landscape of such greats from Stevie Wonder to Steely Dan. Delivering hard-hittin R&B , rocking out with screaming lead guitar, and crooning lush, "baby-making" soul ballads "A Different Look" is a refreshing listening experience with catchy melodies and timeless writing.
As with "Friends", a smash hit with a groove funky enough to demand the repeat button. With classic cover's like the Beatles "Something" Chris's emotional vocal performance gives the listener a look into his soul and his depth as a vocalist. "I Can't Help It" a tribute to the great Michael Jackson , Chris explores the magical chord progressions of Stevie Wonder with his own vision of the classic. "Not Ready" a mid tempo joint with an infectious melody and amazing horn section takes the listener on a ride they're sure to enjoy . "I Will " an original composition invokes the passion of love and its endless possibilities . Driven by the groove of the acoustic guitar you cant help but hear a little Isley Brothers in "I Will".
At a glance, "A Different Look" is a modern day classic , with a touch of the past echoing through the speakers. A must hear remedy for those who yearn for that feel good music , in a time where it seems hard to find! You found it!
