Review: Emory Quinn "See You At The Next Light"

Creating a unique sound is easier said than done, but Texas country band Emory Quinn has managed to make it look simple. In fact, Emory Quinn's inventive amalgamation of blues, southern rock, Texas country and Americana is perfectly showcased on the band's new album "See You At The Next Light."
EQ's remarkable third studio album begins with "Hand In Hand," which offers a laid-back vibe along with an anthemic chorus. Indeed, the band's growth is illustrated in its melodic improvement over the band's 2008 effort titled "The Road Company" and 2006's "Letting Go."

However, the album truly comes into its own with the rapturous guitar work on the cut "Moving On," which also features charming lyrics and a pitch-perfect vocal performance. "Heart In Your Mind" shows the softer side of Emory Quinn (EQ), but it is the "country-licious" cut titled "Finds Danger" which is the album's biggest surprise. The syrupy sweet melody is deliciously enchanting.

"Holes Through The Windows" is a near perfect bar sing-a-long song that offers elements of Red Dirt and honky tonk mixed with tinges of Britpop vocal interludes. The Texas country track "Tear Down The Walls" is a Chris Knight-esque track that is the best song on the entire album. The mysterious and slightly dark lyrics are deeply satisfying. "When I Dream" shares much of the same charm, except with a faster beat and more uplifting lyrics. Likewise, the last song "Falling Down Again" is immensely hummable, and radio program managers should consider the track for their playlists for a song that could be a multi-genre radio chart  hit.

For a bunch of country boys from Texas A&M who managed to move from dorms and houses to start a band, "See You At The Next Light" is a major musical accomplishment. In fact, even a Julliard grad would be proud to have created such a nuanced album filled with an array of musical influences. So EQ, when you finally get to the next light, we hope you'll remember to deliver a new album along with another dollop of Lone Star charm.
