Review: Flat River Band "High Roller"

Brotherly love is mandated by The Good Book, but it is easier said than done. However, the Sitze brothers (Chad, Dennijo and Andy) have managed to make it work in the formation of the Flat River Band. Indeed, the brothers' new album "High Roller" is a testament to the beautiful harmonies that usually only family members can successfully produce.
The album begins with retro-cool "I'm Alright I'm OK," but the band really proves that it has the chops to compete in the rough and tumble country music industry with "Without Love," which should have been the album's first song. The melodies are terrific and mix the best elements of Alabama and Rascal Flatts. This cut shows that these musical upstarts have a future in country music.

"Lovely" mixes some Bee Gee-esque melodies with a country sound to great success, and the band proves its country rock credentials with the synthed-up "Blow My Mind." Another successful track is "Shine Down Upon Me," which carefully utilizes the brothers tremendous harmonies. The story-in-song "Things I Remember" also slowly reveals the band's melodic charm

"High Roller" is a mix of musical styles and genres that is not surprising considering the band has been touring around the country performing at various festivals, churches and fairs since 2006. However, the key to their future success is plainly evident on the album, because the most satisfying parts are the soaring vocal moments that showcase the beautiful blending voices of the Sitze brothers. If these high rollers would take a gamble on creating an album completely showcasing their uniquely wonderful harmonies, this band could break the bank.
