Dave Armo – Poets On The Wall

Dave Armo – Poets On The Wall
“Singer-Songwriter” has become such a generic term these days, usually conjuring an aural vision of someone plucking an acoustic guitar and channeling James Taylor. If you want a different definition, check out this third release from SoCal residing Dave Armo. He is a singer, and a damn good one, with a sort of ethereal sweetness to his voice without being too sugary, and subtle emotion that seems to carry more power than those who over-emote when they sing. And he is a songwriter, with a quirky versatility adding elements ranging from alt and traditional folk to bits of rock, jazz and American that enthralls you throughout the twelve tracks. There are acoustic guitar fueled songs such as “This Time May Never End” and “Lovers On The Beach” that are anything but typified. “Every Night I Call Your Name” and the title track bring in delectable keyboard backdrops that add incredible flavor to the music. “It Has Been So Cold In California” turns up a crunchy alt rock vibe, the only somewhat “loud” song on the CD, but by no means the only powerful track. With the third element being the lyrics, Dave has proven to be an adept storyteller, with honest words emanating from several reaches of his soul, enticing you to take the journey with him. This will be a journey you will enjoy if you love music that is created with talent, passion and the right doses of innovation and eclectic influences. – MW
