Review – John Welsh Band

Album: ¡Vamonos Mi Chica!
Release Date: May 12, 2017
Genre: World Music

The Fraser Valley’s John Welsh Band consists of John Welsh, Courage Eigbike, Chris Welsh, Nathan Larsen, and Devin Modugno.  The group has released their latest album, ¡Vamonos Mi Chica! today! The album contains ten tracks. Included in the track listing is the single “Sayulita.”

When listening to the album, the various influences that influence the John Welsh Band’s music are evident.  There is a touch of World Music, reggae, Latin, rock, pop, and African flair.  There is not a single genre that the group sticks to.  However, the most common aspects that the songs have are strong song-writing, and are feel-good songs.  With the John Welsh Band, songs are in English, Spanish, or both languages.  However, it does not matter whether you understand Spanish or not.  The track-listing on ¡Vamonos Mi Chica! can easily make fans want to sing and dance along.

Overall, I highly enjoyed the album.  The ten songs seem to come in a perfect package.  The three tracks that stood out for me ohnerezeptfreikauf erfahrungen were “Me Hace Sentir” and “Sayulita.” The song “Sayulita” reminds me of relaxing on the beach and checking out the small town of Puerto Escondido, Mexico.  From my experiences in Mexico, I recognize the slang used in “Me Hace Sentir.” The songs are well-constructed and catchy.

I recommend checking out the album.  For a taste of ¡Vamonos Mi Chica!, check out the album’s lead single “Sayulita” here.

Hi Everyone! My name is Remington Fioraso. I am a graduate of the University of the Fraser Valley’s Bachelor of Arts program in Sociology, Anthropology, and Media and Communication Studies. Within my program, I focused on social media, learning about contemporary and classical sociological theory (Including Marx, Foucault, Bourdieu, and Durkheim), and communicating effectively in various modes and for different audiences (including oral communication, business communication, academic writing, entertainment media, and presentations utilizing visual media). Within my program, the question arose for many courses, “What is the relevance in the real world?” Stepping (temporarily) away from being in university, I gained an interest in Latin American development, social movements, and business. Sooner than later, I will be applying for post-grad programs to dive further into LA development and social movements to gain a theory-background in addition to a personal perspective onto the topics. In my free time, I love to travel, consume media, eat, listen to music, and write. Listening to music and writing led to my interest in working with Canadian Beats! I have been a part of the team since April 2014. A few of my personal highlights of interviews include ones with some of my favourite artists – Sumo Cyco, Madeline Merlo, and High Valley.
