Quote: "From nailing the high notes in his sweet ballad title track to soaring to the low richness in the many of the other songs, he never sounds unsure."
By Catherine Tully
Nick Cardilino is all heart, and one listen to his CD shows it. Here is a sample:
I love you more than a flame loves to glow
More than a fairy tale loves a long time ago
This love is more than any genius can know
More, I love you more ...
While the music itself is nothing particularly fancy, Nick's voice is beautiful and has an incredible range. From nailing the high notes in his sweet ballad title track to soaring to the low richness in the many of the other songs, he never sounds unsure.
I would like to see Cardilino backed by a full band with the same kind of heart to see if that would fill out the sound a bit. There is a bit of a gap between the skill of his voice and the simplicity of the music. I think that this would really help bring the quality Cardilino seems to be working so hard to reach.
The lyrics of Cardilino's songs have a wide range and talk about everything from being yourself to driving a mini-van. Cardilino's songs are about real life, and those who have a family will surely relate to some of the subjects.
The songwriting can be characterized as heartfelt, and some carry an uplifting spiritual message, such as track 1, "Dancin' On The Water, which carries a Christian message. The song actually has a Tom Jones feel to it -- the kind of feel that makes you want to chuckle a little but you find yourself humming along to anyway and remembering later on with a smile.
