Carey Ott - Lucid Dream

Reviewer :
Kaj Roth Format: Album
Year: 2007
Label: Dualtone Music
Genre: Singer Songwriter
Artist discography


Chicago based singer/songwriter Carey Ott makes music like he was a veteran in the business, some of these songs could easily have been featured on a Traveling Wilburys album.
Carey writes music like poetry and it?s not a secret he?s been influenced by artists like Robbie Robertson, Damien Rice and Tom Petty.
I also think he sounds a bit like Michael Penn and Julian Lennon at times, I just love the sound of an analog recording in these digital infected times.
The calm "Kickingstones" opens up like a flower in spring with Carey?s heartfelt melodies and the more rootsy folkrock of "It?s only love" sounds like the perfect song to heat up the temperature in a small rock club.
The nice pop song "I wouldn?t do that to you" is handmade for a long ride in your car and "Shelf life" will surely attract all fans of Tom Petty faster than a blink of an eye.
This is an acoustic based album but Carey also shows he likes to rock like my personal faves "You got love" and "Daylight".
Carey Ott - remember that name!
