Product Notes

AFTER THREE YEARS IN THE MAKING,SINGER/SONGWRITER, JOHN JOSEPH NOLIS, HAS RECENTLY RELEASED HIS DEBUT ALBUM TITLED, Y O U . THE ALBUM IS AN ACOUSTIC MIXTURE OF POP,FOLK,AND EASY LISTENING MUSIC THAT HAS BEEN WINNING HIM CRITICAL ACCLAIM FOR HIS POWERFUL PERFORMANCES, SOARING VOCALS, AND HEARTFELT SONGWRITING. A RECENT REVIEW BY PATRICK ARENA IN VICE MAGAZINE WRITES... 'HERE IS A DEBUT ALBUM THAT PEOPLE WILL CHERISH BECAUSE IT IS FILLED WITH DELICATE, COMFORTING, PEACE AND QUIET. IT LOWERS MY HEART RATE AND BLOOD PRESSURE....CALMS MY CHELSEA NERVES. JOHN IS NOT AFRAID TO LEAVE SPACES IN THE SONGS. HE SEEMS TO BE SAYING WE DON'T HAVE TO HURRY. WE CAN TAKE TIME TO THINK IT THROUGH. TAKE TIME TO REMEMBER AND FEEL.' And I Wonder, IS A SONG SET ALONE IN BED...WONDERING WHERE YOU ARE. THE HARMONIES TRANSFORM THE SIMPLE SENTIMENTS INTO MELANCHOLIA. I LOVE THOSE LONG FADE OUTS INTO THE DISTANCE. THE BLUES MAKES AN APPEARANCE. And I Pray, IS A SONG MORE DIRECTLY PAINFUL, DEALING WITH THAT OLD GEOGRAPHICAL CURE THAT GOES NOWHERE. AND THE SONGS, Come Away and Call You My Lover, WORK AS TONICS TO THE PAIN OF THE PREVIOUS EMOTIONS. THESE ORIGINAL SONGS ARE MIXED IN WITH SMARTLY CHOSEN SONGS BY MELISSA ETHERIDGE, TOM WAITS, KIM CARNES, AND AND OTHERS WHOSE SONGS ARE RARELY COVERED. ALL THESE SONGS ARE BEAUTIFULLY WRITTEN. IT IS TO JOHN'S CREDIT THAT HIS OWN MATERIAL HOLDS UP SO STRONGLY NEXT TO THESE TREASURES. IT'S HIS PLAINTIVE, MASCULINE VOICE THAT PULLS IT ALL TOGETHER. HIS SINGING IS LIKE A MASSAGE THAT MAKES, Y O U, JUST MOAN.
