"Short Sharp Shots of Rock - Steven Reid"

Americana, as you'd expect, is pretty much the preserve of the Americans. Hence it's a welcome surprise that the authentic tunes of MARK SHEPHERD come from Hertfordshire - adding a pleasingly British slant on the most United States of sounds as they do. What's also rather exciting is that the singer himself has more than a hint of Danny Vaughan in his vocal delivery, which provides a more Melodic rock aroma than might otherwise have been expected. With each of the four tracks appearing in both electric mode and an acoustic re-imagining. 'It's About Time' is a glorious sing-along, while the title-track of 'THE GRAND SCHEME OF THINGS' is a more emotional, if still insistent offering. However, all four cuts are of the highest standard and Shepherd is a very clever Englishman indeed. - Fireworks - Issue 86 - Spring 2019
