ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"A born showman... Creel's ultra hip stage presence and sleek sexiness barely contain the kind of star quality that other singers can only dream of possessing. His ‘watchability’ factor is stratospheric!” -Show Business Weekly

Unlike many manufactured, pre-fab music acts today, Gavin Creel is a multi-faceted performer who is forging a unique path and steadily carving out his own place in the entertainment industry.

Creel was raised in a small city in Ohio and spent his childhood studying classical music, while obsessively listening to Top 40 radio. He developed a bizarre roster of childhood musical heroes that included Billy Joel, George Michael, and Harry Connick Jr. After graduating from high school, he took his passion for music and performing to the University of Michigan where he majored in musical theatre. During his collegiate years, with sights set firmly on the New York stage, Creel started writing and creating his own sound that combined his love for pop music with the emotional energy of the theatre.

Once he hit New York City, Creel broke out with a Best Actor Tony nomination for his Broadway debut in THOROUGHLY MODERN MILLIE. Since then, he has solidified his reputation as one of the business’ top young performers, starring in such productions as the Off-Broadway cult hit, BAT BOY, the world premiere of Stephen Sondheim’s BOUNCE, and most recently, the Tony Award winning revival of LA CAGE AUX FOLLES. In tandem with his success as an actor, Creel has thrilled sold-out crowds with his original pop music at venues all across New York, such as Irving Plaza, Joe’s Pub, and Arlene’s Grocery.

"Proving he’s just as versatile singing pop music as he is theatre, Creel’s sexy, unvarnished tenor resonates perfectly on his excellent original material…making him a face and a talent to watch.” -NEXT

Creel collaborated on GOODTIMENATION with Producer/Co-Writer, Robbie Roth. Creel proclaims that this is not, “your typical, generic pop album.”

“When Robbie and I met, I told him that I want people to feel alive when they hear my music. I want them to feel good. I’m tired of all the angry stuff out there. I’m sick of people putting boxes around everyone, telling you where and how you have to fit in. I don’t want to fit in. I want to make music that can reach out to people of all different ages and backgrounds and beliefs and turn us into one, groovin, GOODTIMENATION.”

Wow!!
A great debut CD, and a must buy! "These four walls," "For Nancy" "Molly's song" are so great. You'll love every minute of this CD. Congrats to Gavin!!

Ristyn

awesome feel good CD
i popped in this cd when i got it and right off the bat the first song got me, then as i kept listening to the rest i got more and more into it. While the lyrics are a little corny for my usual taste they are a good kind of corny that had me laughing and grooving. And love the 80s sound. It'd make a good party soundtrack, its easy and enjoyable.

sometimes contrived, but overall it pleasantly surprised me.
of course, gavin's voice is remarkable. we all agree, he's incredibly gifted. and i bought the cd because i've seen him perform in many things. however, i'm not usually a fan of "pop music," so i wasn't expecting to really like the style of the album. BUT! it's not as "pop music" as i thought it might be. the melodies aren't as trendy (which is good!) and there are some interesting musical choices here and there that i really enjoy. you don't often get "interesting" from a pop album. so cheers on changing my mind! i'm glad!

however, i'm going to have to agree with another reviewer's comments about the lyrics. now, i'm a big fan of sexual innuendo in music, (a la dave matthews, etc.) but i found some of gavin's lyrics to be a little too blatant. or contrived. instead of being subtly sexy, pushing the envelope, it was a little too in your face. a tad cheesy or melodramatic at times? it just seemed... teenage. a little. the syntax could've been more creative and well planned.

now, some of the lyrics were breathtakingly beautiful. which is what i'd expect from someone as thoughtful as gavin. but the sophomoric quality of some of the lyrics made it seem like they were only there for shock value. or to appeal to a larger, if less complex and discerning audience.

so it seems it will appeal to lots of people. which i suppose is the goal, now, isn't it? :) great first album, g. keep them coming. keep us guessing.

Gavin Creel is a star
Gavin Creel is a star! This album music is hott... don't hesitate-- buy immediately!

Jamie McGonnigal

perfect.
I'm completely biased, as Gavin is a friend, but he has converted me into a screaming fan boy...

His voice is silk and he and Robbie's work on this CD is nothing short of brilliant.

I want so badly for him to be a huge star and with these songs, I don't see how that won't happen.

Bought this for my daughter. She is a big fan and loves the cd. She hopes to perform on Broadway some day.

1st class debut album...bring on the others
Having recently discovered Gavin Creel in the recent stage production of Mary Poppins in London, now about to tour the UK but sadly without Gavin, I was mesmerised by his wonderful voice and performance. I needed to hear more from this man! Unfortunately someone bought the last copy of Goodtimenation in the theatre foyer but as luck would have it I was able to purchase a copy from CDbaby. This CD is a great showcase for Gavin's smooth and unctuous voice, ranging from lively dance numbers, to the hauntingly sung ballad, These Four Walls. If you need to do a good deed for the day, go buy this album and spread the word. Good on you Gavin & Robbie, can't wait 'til the next one...and come back to the UK soon!
