Country artist, Cory Marquardt released his album, “This Man” yesterday via Big Star Recordings. If you have heard his singles, “Smartphone” and “21” and you were a fan, then I have no doubt that you will enjoy the rest of the album just as much, if not more.
The album consists of ten tracks, each as good as the last. The second song, “Nowhere With You” would have to be my favourite on the album. It’s upbeat and is fun to sing along with, I hope to see this song live someday, I think it would be amazing.
Cory’s music has a mixture of classic country sound and that modern country/rock vibe that I personally can’t get enough of lately. The fourth song, “Don’t Count Saturday Night” is another of my top picks; it features comical lyrics, as well as keeping the listener interested and singing along.
“Teach Me” is the eighth song, and if you’re looking for a slower song, this one is for you. This is the type of song that I can picture people slow dancing to at the school dance or even a wedding. The lyrics are touching, and Cory’s vocals are strong and full of emotion while belting out these lyrics, “I wanna open up my heart the way that you do, so baby teach me, come break down these walls that no one’s gotten through and reach me”.
There is something on this album for each and every one of you, and I can honestly say that I would be surprised that this album isn’t hugely successful. Cory has what it takes to go the distance, and I can’t wait until the opportunity arises for me to see him live, and I strongly recommend that if you get the chance, not to miss out!
