"Andrew,
The musianship is top-notch on this track,with strong,tasteful parts delivered by each player. Your relaxed vocal delivery sells the song well.The chord progression is skillfully constructed, and the light breezy vibe of the music effectively fits the unusual imagery incorporated in the lyrics.”
Review of my song “A Wing and a Prayer” by TAXI (Independent A&R Company)
