COUNTRY: Country Rock, ROCK: Americana
The band Taneytown was formed about 2,5 years ago, but the individual members have known each other for nearly 15 years now. Singer/songwriter Edwin Jongedijk had a stash of songs written and he asked some of his friends to join him in the band. All band members were fans of the Americana genre and it was not hard to make the band work.
Taneytown''s debut album was recorded in 4 days and you can hear the freshness. It''s honest, genuine and passionate... They call it Americana and sure, there is some traditional country rock on this album, like Blame It On Jack, but the band has it''s own sound. Edwin Jongedijk''s vocals are deep, raspy, sometimes husky. Some have called the performance of this 6''4" singer mesmerizing. The band is tight, powerful, and subtle where needed.
Bruce Springsteen''s finest work is called to mind when one hears Edwin''s intense and sensitive vocals and witnesses his passionate stage presence. Taneytown''s album features a wide range of musical styles; from the acoustic guitars in Albuquerque, New Mexico, via the smouldering jazzy sounds of Here''s To You to the heavy compelling chorus of This Is How I Feel. Edwin''s lyrics are heartfelt and honest. Every band member contributes evenly to the final sound, the steady and original rhythm section providing a secure base for the distinctive guitar sound and the easy-flowing keyboards. Despite the musical talent in this band, the band members aren''t afraid to keep the songs simple.
If you like your music genuine, original and passionate and you''re not afraid to try something new, check out this album. You won''t be disappointed.
