I urge you to look out for this fine release and give its music and songs a try.
Born in Newfoundland Canada, Mitchell Hunt's song-writing has been inspired by the harsh yet beautiful and weather-beaten landscape he grew up with. His songs speak of the joy and hope you can find in life and how love can help to heal and save you. Now I have to confess something to you, that being that I'm a sucker for this singer/song-writer stuff.
Yes, I'm a card carrying member of the AOR Mafia and I'll admit that I do like the heavier more complicated music that you get in the many different genres this magazine supports. But if you hand me an album featuring a lone person singing from the heart, ably supported by a small backing band (two guys this time) you'll find me in hog heaven each and every time that you do.
What I find best about this style of music and Hunt's album is that it is uncomplicated, uncluttered and without ego, There's no "look at me and see how fast I can play" going on. It's just the songs doing all the talking and, without hesitation, I can highly recommend to you 'The End', the Country Rockin' 'Chance To Be With You', the tasty 'Closer To You' with its superb hook, the wonderful 'Make Him Pay' which Rick Springfield would be proud to have written, 'Scream', 'Stronger', 'Never Gonna Say', the stunning ballad 'Forever And Ever Again' and the killer 'Steal Your Heart'.
Mitchell Hunt and his cohorts – Clint Curtis guitars and Steve Clark drums – have with 'Give Me A Sign' recorded an album that speaks to me on so many levels, and if you have any love for catchy hook-laden songs that are full of life and played with gusto, then I think you will get a real kick out of this album. I urge you to look out for this fine release and give its music and songs a try. Nice one.
