“Hitchin’ It to Heaven” is an entrancing 7-piece collection, including the “Opening Act.” Stunningly innovated and passionately performed tunes, you will absolutely enjoy each and every moment that will pass as the tracks expertly transition into one another.
“Hitchin’ It to Heaven” the title track has that nostalgic and classic rock n’ roll vibe to it, and it reflects the spirit of 70s and ecstasy with its head-bumping qualities that it flaunts with the effortless groove the elements forming the instrumentation carry. It is very catchy and infectious, especially with that engaging chorus that, for reasons unbeknownst to me, I can’t get off of my mind!
There is a cinematic glow about the electric guitar and the ensuing riffs and the way it melds with the drums and some rocky percussion all the while backed by his genre-perfect vocal presentation that will leave a lasting impression on you. There is a way his vocal continuously grows throughout and gains depth and color, and that ending is also cinematic and just perfect!
“Dying Staying Alive” is a 6-minute long, emotion-filled tune that takes you to a dreamy soundscape. The electric guitar intro followed by some haunting effects and his vocals that are psychedelic-inspired as he performs straight from his heart and soul is what will endear you to this spectacular track. This track is melodious and rhythmic and tells a very emotional tale.
“It Hurts Me” has those endearing bluesy features and is laid-back yet features a very intense performance from his self-assured vocals. “Changes” carries a certain melancholic feel to it and is blues oriented with his warm and emotional vocals allowed to flourish over the laid-back instrumentation.
You will love even the other staggeringly invented tunes – “Goodbye, Danny” and “Kiss Me Kill Me.” Two very spectacularly performed and resplendent tracks that are worthy additions to any playlist.
