Jango Radio review of You Are The One

Posted by Stan Demski Category: News

Overall Impression:
There is something particularly easy-going and laid-back about Beaver Road’s sound and style that I couldn’t help but find tremendously calming. The delicately handled harmonies, charming lyrics, and down-to-earth performances really help “You Are The One” engage with the listener on a level that can only be achieved through dedicated songwriting and an unequivocal passion for the craft.
Strongest Point(s):
Harmonies certainly play an integral part in “You Are The One” and they are both wonderfully crafted and lovingly handled. It’s easy to hear that harmonies are a strong concurrent element of Beaver Road’s unique musical style and they really help create this marvelously warm and rich texture that envelops the listener from start to finish. Whether it’d be lush-sounding vocal harmonies that are interspersed throughout or the rather exotic, and almost oriental feeling lines that enter around 2:38, a great deal of care has gone into the ways instruments and melodic themes are layered, making for a fascinating and continually enthralling piece of music.
This is an excellent track and I enjoyed it very much, keep up the great work!
Target Audience Appeal:
This is a great blend of country, folk, and Americana styles, and fans of these genres will certainly appreciate “You Are The One”
