"Positive and Inspiring Folk Rock CD"

"Shadow on the Moon" by Phyllis Brock is a Folk Rock album with a taste of country. Filled with beautiful melodies and intimate vocals, this album will keep you in a relaxed, pleasant state of mind. The vibe is positive and lyrics inspiring. You'll also hear some nice accompaniment and fine musicianship behind the singer. And if you like a classic Country voice, Phyllis' voice is it. Highlights are "Where Only We Can Go," which sets the tone of the album nicely with a lovely vocal performance and nice harmonies. "Shadow on the Moon" is a bluesy number with more great vocal harmony. "I Dreamed I Danced with Willie Nelson" is a fun little number with some very Willie-esque guitar work. If you enjoy folk rock and discovering excellent female vocalists, you'll enjoy this CD.

"Excellent Guitar-Based Folk Rock CD"

“Blue Sun (It’s Still You)” by Jack Douglas & Phyllis Brock is a CD that nicely delivers guitar-based folk rock with charm and variety. The CD features outstanding guitar work Jack's gravelly vocals, which effectively give strength to the lyrics. Jack's vocals are nicely complemented on certain tracks by Phyllis's smooth voice, adding enjoyable variety to the tracks. The songwriting on the CD is outstanding, with strong choruses and well-considered lyrics. The CD begins with a semi-spiritual praise of love and appreciation for that love with “It’s Still You,” which features melodic harmonica work, outstanding lyrics, and a nice backing vocal counter-melody in the memorable chorus. Jack adds tasteful vocal flavor to “Hear that Train,” which includes some sweet slide guitar fills. “Give It A Day” features a tight, infectious groove and a generally rebellious attitude regarding the general events of the day. "Arabian Hearts" includes a driving beat and wicked guitar licks, to nicely accentuate Jack's emotional vocal performance. If you enjoy big name artists such as Mark Knopfler and Dire Straits, you'll enjoy this excellent CD.

Bio

Jack Douglas:
Although Jack was born and raised in Denver, Colorado he has made his escape on numerous occasions. While at large, he has played his music in such places as NYC and Berlin, Laredo, Texas and Kotzebue, Alaska. His voice sounds something like a cross between Johnny Cash and Tom Waits. “That way of singing is accidental,” says Jack. “It comes from rehearsing with a band. You’re trying to get the drummer to hear you. I’m always
surprised when someone says they like my voice. I figure what they really mean is that they can hear me, that the lyric is coming through.” Jack is very happy with his current lineup. “No one plays or sings a note that I don’t believe in.”

Phyllis Brock:
Phyllis is the actual singer in the group. Westword has described her “serene croon,” and audiences in the U.S. and abroad have experienced her warmth and authenticity. An accomplished songwriter, her skills are beautifully evident on the Bob Tyler-produced CD, “Shadow On The Moon”. For the past ten-plus years she has been performing, recording and generally putting up with her husband Jack. While her backup vocals and fingerpickin’ guitar help anchor the trio, she can also deliver the knockout punch with a song like her Patsy Cline inspired, “Broken to Pieces”.
