New Music : Shawn Fogel – Alt-Power-Country-Pop

Who needs their own band ? Shawn Fogel is more proof that it’s easier than ever to go it alone in the studio. Drawn to music at an early age under the spell of his mother’s Beatles records, Shawn is a talented multi-instrumentalist that attributes his inspiration for going solo to Stevie Wonder. You can’t really go wrong with influences like that. One Day in the Desert, his new EP, is five super catchy gems that I can best describe as alt-power-country-pop. There’s plenty of folky twang in the mix, offset and complemented perfectly by enough power pop melodies to keep the songs ringing in your head for days after only one listen. I’ve been listening it this on repeat quite a bit over the past couple weeks and it’s only shortcoming is that at just five songs it leaves you wanting even more.
