  •  The Independent Musicians CD Reviews

    Welcome to the EvO:R Independent CD Reviews Section.
    I would like to take a few minutes to introduce ourselves to everyone. The EvO:R review section features reviews from various independent musicians that submit material for our consideration.

    I wanted to let you know a little about our review teams collective thoughts on music. It's important to let the people we review know what we think of their music and how we listened to their creations.

    We hold nothing back! The team has been instructed to be honest and respectful of all CD's reviewed.

     Let Go
    by Nancy Tyler

    Reviewed by: Joel Pirard

    “Let Go” was recorded at The Hovel, “The Hermit” Hamish Thomson’s studio in North Vancouver, Canada on November 2009, March 2010, April 2010, July 2010. Produced by Nancy Tyler and Hamish Thomson. Recorded and Engineered by Hamish Thomson All Vocals, Acoustic Guitar, Mandolin, Bass Guitar, Electric Guitar, and Percussion – Nancy Tyler. Drums and Percussion – Hamish Thomson.
    All songs recorded on a Raincoast Guitar Hand Built by Daniel Minard in Powell River B.C.

    First off, Nancy has a pleasant clear, earthy voice. Her playing is skilled, catchy and VERY well done. The album starts off with a quick acoustic instrumental, called ‘Bushbilly Bop’ that is almost like a statement of ‘here I am’ and it does that very well. ‘Stumble and Fall’ is the next rack and the first with a vocal, just vocal and guitar, and is also a way of presentation of her music, followed by ‘Don’t Know’, the first with a band arrangement. Some great mandolin is here, simple but elegant percussion, and great clean production throughout.

    About Nancy, she is from British Columbia, she sings and writes her own music, plays the guitar, mandolin and bass. Coming from a musical family, she started on ukulele as a child and moved on to guitar lessons at a young age, eventually developing her own style and never looking back. Even though she is Canadian, there is decided southern flavor to her music, somewhat reminiscent of fellow Canadian Neil Young. I don’t know if it is something from the Canadian west coast but there is a distinct sound from there.

    The CD moves along through several solo acoustic/singer songs, but also does explore a more rocking style. “Capturing Me’ features some cool electric guitar and has a cool groove. I could not conclude this review without mentioning the title track, ‘Let Go’ which features some really nice vocal arrangements. Citing her son Gerry as her inspiration, Nancy explores a variety of subjects, in her lyrics, her musical approach does not stray too far from her roots, but there are enough more rocking pieces t keep that casual listener interested.

    Song Samples from the CD
    All song samples are from Nancy Tyler Music - page on Reverb Nation.
    Bushbilly Bop (Instrumental)  Stumble and Fall  Don't Know  Paper Walls  Capturing Me  Still Friends  Chattering Monkey  Let Go  Time Is Compressing 

    I like it! My score is a 10 out of 10! ( I don’t do that too often )

    I am a sucker for real, from-the-heart music, especially when the direction is clear, solid, unpretentious, and elegant. ( there’s that word again! )
