"Peter Karis - Change"

Rating: 8.4 out of 10
By C.W. Ross

Change is the debut release from Peter Karis who calls Seattle, Washington home. The music found on this 4-song EP falls mostly into the melodic light rock range ala artist like, Dave Matthews, and John Mayer.

The four songs, “Tied,” “River Song,” “Change,” and “In My Dreams” deal with life and love issues, along with life changes. The songs manage to build upon a singer songwriter base with elements of modern rock, mostly via the guitar parts used in the songs.

There’s also a heartfelt passion that comes through the song’s lyrics as Karis sings them. This 20-something performer has a passion for his music that comes through loud and clear.

Karis has been busy playing smaller venues and hopes to spread out via college radio along with doing some regional touring on the West Coast.

My benchmark when reviewing an EP to whether it’s good or not is, does it leave me wanting more. Peter Karis’ Change EP does just that- more please!
