"The Charming Third''s Will Simpson was born and raised in the bluegrass state of Kentucky, and his sound certainly does a good job of proving that. His stark acoustic guitar and rustic voice blend for an authentic-feeling sound, and an extremely personal live show. Drawing inspiration from artists ranging from golden oldies, such as Bob Dylan, to more noisy contemporaries like Bright Eyes and Nickelcreek, Simpson does a masterful job of mixing the old and new to his own special folk sound.
When the lights go down, and the guitar comes out you can be sure you''re in for a treat as Simpson strums his way through crooning soft ballads(Let''s Kill Christian Music) to pumping dance-alongs(The Drive Home) that will make you feel like locking arms with a partner for a few two-steps. Simpson''s lyrics draw an honest look at some of the finer and less talked-of sides of Christianity, and display a heart-felt love for the simple world around us. He reaches beyond his years to provide an earthy sound that''s not only intelligent and passionate about the subjects his songs speak on, but also provides a strange and comforting
sense of intimacy live." -Matt Keith - Rock Paper Scissors Magazine 07/26/07
Matt put it pretty well, much more eloquently than I could. But basically it boils down to this: I love music. It feeds me, drives me, it keeps me going. Also, I can''t stand formula bands or Christian bands that feel they need to sugar coat everything to maintain their faith. I hope you like my music or connect to something I''m saying. Thanks for listening.
