Artist: Tony DeSimone
Title: ‘As We Go ‘Round the Sun’ EP
Overall Album Vibe: Tony DeSimone is a rocket scientist by day and rocker by night. The singer-song writer is also a talented multi-instrument artist that he puts to good use on his latest EP, ‘As We Go ‘Round the Sun.’ On the EP you’ll find a fusion of flowing, light Island sound meets Americana rock. Highlight songs include the title track, “As We Go ‘Round the Sun,” that offers up an uncluttered island sound that feels like a musical gentle island breeze blowing as it deals with the subject of all of us needing to get along with each other in this one world that we all live in. “The Rapture,” is a pop/rock track that offers up mixed male and female vocals with lyrics centered around spending romantic time with that one special person in your life. “The Line on My Horizon,” is another mid-tempo rock track with a romantic based theme with dual vocal harmonies. I also want to mention the interesting closing track, “Suspicious Minds,” that blends the Elvis hit of the same name with the Neil Diamond penned song, “Sweet Caroline.”
Review Tagline: On his new EP, ‘As We Go ‘Round the Sun,’ Tony DeSimone takes you on a musical journey that has an island flavor thanks to his ukulele playing and breezy flowing songs.
