"Consensus Review of Leave the Darkness"


Picture of artist Rick Whitehurst gave a score of 8 / 10. Comments were:
Mark Lassiter's "Leave the darkness" is a gentle folk song in an old traditional style once made popular by the Faces Rod Stewart. I enjoyed this song immensely, outstanding vocals quiver only once in the beginning. Cool lyrics and stylish but old school instrumentals all pull this piece into a big hit, though perhaps from days gone by.

Scoring: Songcraft: 10, Recording: 9, Freshness: 4, Vocals: 10, XFactor: 6

Mark Lassiter and the Band lay down a pretty good tune with "Leave the Darkness". Great guitar work in the intro and general mix. Good backhills bluegrass rock. Well mixed and well played by all. Mark has a nice voice. Still getting his legs but pitch perfect. With a little work there is a greatness coming hear. Look forward to hearing more. Mongo like.

Bio

Mark and his band have been gigging and playing together for over 2 years and have constantly acheived greater recognition for their original and listenable music. Mark is a child of the 80's and his pop influenced creations bring a universally enjoyable hook to his songs. his biggest influences are Phil Collins, Peter Gabriel, Elton John but also the grunge and post-grunge bands especially Alice in Chains. Gabe and Tony bring a vast experience in all genres including pop, classic rock, southern rock among others. Their spot on rythym chemistry makes our music, well, music to the ears. Seth is the youngest member of the band and his influences come from Smashing Pumpkins, Creed, Tool and the like. Our goal is to create and play an original set of music that our audience can connect with on a personal level and that they enjoy listening to.
