AOR Heaven / Point Music
Produced by: Eva
Released: OUT / Website
Closest Relative: Tim Feehan
Eva are another great discovery from AOR Heaven and Point Music. These guys are another example of pure AOR - played and written at it's heart.|
That means lots of soft mid-tempo ballads, plenty of keyboards and lots of heartfelt, soaring harmony vocals.
Naturally, you can add a couple of big power ballads to the mix and a couple of smoother almost Westcoast numbers to round out this release.
At times this reminds me of Tim Feehan, another great name in the AOR game - who has since moved into other areas of interest, over a solo career.
The production is solid throughout, and the style is heavily influenced by the late 80's and early 90's AOR movement. I am not trying to short change this album, but there's not much more I need to add to describe it.
AOR fans will find that a few listens in will have them roped in.
Give Up is a catchy AOR anthem and a dead ringer for Tim Feehan and the sound of his debut album.
Blue Sky is a good Midwestern AOR power ballad that sounds quite similar to classic mid-80's Michael Bolton. |
Call The Heart meanwhile, is a jazzy little pop number with a sprinkling of pure 80's AOR keyboards and a happy go lucky feel.
