Genre – Pop
Devin Moody is no stranger to Canadian Beats. We’ve done interviews, cover contests and more with this up & coming Burlington based artist. His music is unique in the way that Doo-Wop isn’t a big genre these days, and he mixes this with Pop, Rock and even some Big Band sound. You may have heard his previous single, Naomi which immediately had me to addicted to his voice and sound.
Now, he has released a three song EP, which I wasn’t surprised that I absolutely adore. There’s no way for me to pick just one song that’s my favourite because I love them all equally. The EP starts with the title track, “Chivalry’s Not Dead” which is an upbeat, fun song that makes you feel like you are gone back in time, but yet with modern tones. I challenge you to not want to dance to this song. I don’t dance, but this song had me dancing in my seat. I can’t help but sing along with Devin on this track.
The second track, “The Great White Buffalo” delivers a slightly different sound, with a bit more Rock sound than the other tracks. On this song, Devin’s vocals are somewhat husky in this track which though different from his other tracks, is attractive to the listener.
“Back In Town” is the final song on the EP and in parts reminds me of artists like Matt Dusk & Michael Buble, but then it begins to sound more like a Doo-Wop song. I immediately thought of the movie “That Thing You Do”, for some reason I could picture this song in that movie.
The whole EP leaves me wanting more from Devin and I am anxiously awaiting a full length release from him, I’m sure you’ll feel the same way when you hear this EP, and did I mention it’s FREE! Go get it now!
