Reliably informed

Songwriter John Homer, under nom de plum Northeasterner, has produced a golden slice of classic country in new track I Believe. Homer’s vocal style here sits somewhere between the melancholic drawl of Morrissey and the crooning of Roy Orbison – high praise on both points of comparison for a voice that is perfectly suited to this track.

It is ably backed up by a production that is assured of its musical place, giving more than a tip of the ten gallon to the classic country and western soundscape. The acoustic guitar and piano parts shine, but the stand out sound is a beautiful lap steel guitar part, gliding glissando licks in between the vocal lines. A really well worked country track.
