"I''ve been trying to write a review of John Tumminello''s Eventually for some time and have found it to be a remarkably difficult thing to accomplish. The short version is easy: Eventually is the finest debut effort I''ve heard in quite some time.

The long version is much more difficult because I can''t quite figure out what makes this record so special. The songs are expertly crafted, to be sure. The simple two note guitar riff that builds to support the lyric of the second verse of the opening track, "Here I am" (which has one of the most infectious choruses you''ll ever hear) and the vocal echo that accentuates the ending phrase of most, but not every line of those verses clearly demonstrate that Tummunello knows what he is doing. But the skillful use of compositional devices is not unique and doesn''t, by itself make for a great record. Tumminello''s lyrics are insightful and poignant: "In this life you cannot choose who you''ll love and who you''ll lose," but insight isn''t all that uncommon among songwriters.

It may be that the songs, as well as Tumminello''s voice, are completely original and yet vaguely familiar. It has been said that the work of an artist is the sum of his influences. If that''s true, Tumminello has been influenced by every great song and every great band of the last forty years. On first listen, I was subtely reminded of many of my favorite artists. Subsequent hearings have merely added to that list.

Eventually is a remarkable record, one that I''ll keep listening to, if for no other reason, than to figure out why it''s so damn good. I suspect that you''ll do the same."

Life is complicated. It''s easy to get so wrapped up in our daily problems that sometimes, it seems there''s no escape. The antidote is to spend 39 minutes with John Tumminello.

John is the latest in the generation of New American storytellers. Embracing artists of the past and present, he joins the ranks of John Mellencamp, Tom Petty and John Mayer with his own powerful and emotionally dynamic American Heartland music - music which serves as both a mirror on our lives and a door to escape through.

From intimate ballads to memorable pop rock songs, John''s range of musical stories takes us on a journey through the ups and downs in life and those sometimes-forgotten moments in between.

In his debut album, Eventually, John covers the gamut, from everything good in our lives to the problems we create for ourselves. In his own words, John explores the aspects of life we all can relate to: lifelong friendships, unrequited love, self-doubt, and the joy that music brings to our lives. In the song Here I Am, he introduces his personal views of love. John believes that people come and go in our lives, and sometimes we just can''t help who we fall in love with - or out of love with. Love is a mystery. We can destroy it with words, or with actions. And sometimes we destroy it without ever knowing how or why.

John''s philosophy carries over to the moving ballad, Still Crazy (In Love With You). Using Elvis Presley as a backdrop, the piece is a haunting look back at the time we spend torturing ourselves about the path we have chosen in life. those paralyzing moments of self-doubt that prevent us from doing what we want, or need, to do.

Which leads us to Eventually - a quest for that moment in life when we finally decide to believe in ourselves and pursue our personal calling. That moment of exhilaration, of challenge, when we are ready to move past fear and start living life for ourselves. John has taken this leap of faith personally, and he invites all of us to do the same.

John Tumminello is a rare artist because his vision of life and what is important in it is not restricted to music. Whether we''re sitting alone at home or driving down the highway with the top rolled down, John''s moving words and irresistible melodies remind us that we are in control of life''s challenges. We are the ones who decide where we will Eventually end up


"John Tumminello has a strong pop-rock sensibility and he plays and sings intuitively, making his music and lyrics so enjoyable and addicting that you have no choice but to submit to those often-ignored pleasure zones in your brain." - https://www.tradebit.com
