One The Line – Herohill

March 21, 2010

“There’s a definite progression on display this time around, with electric guitar being used more than I remember and adding a new element to David’s sound. Yet elements that worked last time around are still featured, with the upright bass (provided by Hot Toddy’s Tom Easley) playing a very prominent role throughout the album, and David’s excellent trumpet playing adding a welcome flourish to a number of songs. The songwriting is equally strong, exemplified by a song like Not Be Afraid, which takes elements we can all relate to (fear & love) and builds a simple, yet beautifully smart song around them.”
