Topic: Reviews

Artist: Corey Landis

CD: Self-Titled

Home: Los Angeles, California

Style: Singer/Songwriter

Quote: "Powerful lyrics combined with simple, beautiful accompaniment -- mostly piano, but also strings -- this CD is a surprising treat."

By Catherine L. Tully

Powerful lyrics combined with simple, beautiful accompaniment -- mostly piano, but also strings -- this CD is a surprising treat. One wouldn't figure that the somewhat darker lyrics would match well with the beauty of the instruments chosen to join them, but they do. It is an odd match that happens to work extremely well.

A true songwriter, Landis can capture a thought or a moment with ease. The sound of his voice brings thoughts of Billy Joel on tracks like "Heather's On Fire," and one shouldn't miss "So Right/So Wrong" for the feelings it evokes. You'll uncover a country sound or two on tracks like "Sherriene," but overall this CD is a songwriters triumph.

Twelve tracks is a good amount, enough to satisfy, especially with the depth each track brings to the overall CD. Those who like reflective, innovative lyrics will enjoy this songwriter, but the music is actually very enjoyable on its own as well. Blending the two makes for a very good thing indeed, and one can hear these tracks again and again, finding something new each time. Treat yourself and check this one out. Landis has a wide appeal.
