reviews Review Lovers Lullaby Review Lovers Lullaby

Overall Impression: Impeccably performed and beautifully written, “Lovers Lullaby” is a fantastic piece of folk laden country songwriting that boasts a sterling arrangement, compelling vocal melodies, and most importantly, plenty of heart. Accomplished and seasoned writer/performer Jason Rogers encompasses the very best of what the country genre has to offer, from the personable sense of character that runs through the music to the affable nature of the performances, “Lovers Lullaby” is a wonderfully wholesome track that will many a music lover can appreciate.

Strongest Point(s): At the core of any great country track is a vocal performance that listeners can easily connect with and Jason does a superb job of bringing a pleasantly mellow vocal presence to the song, a presence that graciously interacts with the tender natured arpeggiated guitar progression perfectly, allowing the music to adopt a particular free-flowing quality that allows for an easy-going and tranquil listening experience from start to finish. I also greatly appreciate the way in which Jason subtly expands the textural properties of the track gradually over time and having individual elements of the instrumentation introduced piece by piece really helps the arrangement feel both organic and dynamic. Opening with just the vocals and guitar parts allows the listener to establish a strong connection with the themes of the song before elements such as the pads and vocal layers are used to help flesh out the overall soundscape, this allows the arrangement to build upon its timbral palette in a natural way that gives listeners time to really soak up the songs many nuanced layers.

Target Audience Appeal: “Lovers Lullaby” is a compelling folk-inspired country track and I’m sure lovers of the genre will find it to be a welcome listening experience. Artist target suggestions: Eric Church, Willie Nelson, Alan Jackson, Tim McGraw, Justin Townes Earle, Jackson Browne, Guy Clark, Lydia Luce, Jason Isbell, Johnny Cash, Shawn James, Mary Gauthier, Chris Stapleton, Jim Croce
