CD Review: Singer/Songwriters Light The Way With New Releases

Indiana singer/songwriter David Corley waited for just the right moment to release his debut album, "Available Light." At 53 years old, Corley has gathered an albums worth of tunes and poetry ideas, which has kept him out of the public's eye until the time was right to unleash his talents to the world. The new ten-song album begins with the bluesy-folk/rock of the title song "Available Light" as Corley's voice is warm and humble. His vocal delivery has a rough Warren Zevon quality to it as he excites you with his storied lyrics as in "Beyond The Fences." When he slows the tempo down, you can really appreciate his weathered vocals as in "Easy Mistake," while the blues groove of "Dog Tales" shows an authenticity to his sound. The album closes with gentle tales of "The End Of My Run" and "The Calm Revolution" has he keep you captivated with his music and lyrics.

The album was released on October 28th through Viper Records and marks the return of Kravat after a hiatus from the music industry. Her new album was recorded live to tape without overdubs. The new four-song release begins with the country rocker "Not Myself Today," which shows a bit of rebel attitude. She shows a ton of promise on the piano ballad "I Could Tell You I Don't Love You" as her vocals draw comparison to Sheryl Crow. The quick twelve-minute album closes with the addictive blast of energy on "Somebody Else Is Driving." To find out more about Amanda Kravat and her lastet EP, "AK," please visit amandakravat.com.
