Unearthed Listeners I'm following:

 

OMAZONE (Ben Wintle) is a Melbourne, Australia based independent, musician, singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist. "Home Time!" is his debut solo album released in 2017. It's a diverse album that traverses musical styles such as rock, pop, funk, blues and folk. “I love a wide variety of musical styles, so I wanted this album to contain a wide variety of styles, using different instruments, rhythms and percussion on each song. Every vocal was to be delivered and recorded differently, with a wide variety of backing vocals to make each song very distinct. After playing my first shows in primary school, years of playing live in original/covers bands, some touring interstate and studio recording I decided to take some time out from work and write, record and produce a solo album. We never get enough time at home and it’s the best time of the day so the album is called “Home Time!”. Paul McCartney once said he wished he could write a song about the ozone layer, but nothing rhymed with "ozone". I thought to myself, why not add an additional syllable - and came up with "OMAZONE"! It had to be rhymed with "chromazone" and so the funky tune: “Omazone Chromazone Blues” was born (Track Three). "OMAZONE" is a unique word, so after a vote with friends and family, I decided to make this my artist name”. Track One and Track Ten use only cigar box guitars, that include a twelve string, a six string, four string and a cigar box bass! On this album all instruments are arranged and played by B Wintle, except Track Two, which includes a ripping guitar solo played by the amazing and talented Bryan Dodge. All songs were written by B Wintle, except Track Eight where the words are by B Wintle, the music was written by B Wintle and Aaron Russell. The album was recorded, mixed and mastered by B Wintle. The album is out on iTunes, Amazon, Bandcamp etc, check out the website www.omazone.com.au Bandcamp: https://omazone.bandcamp.com iTunes: https://itunes.apple.com/au/album/home-time!/id1179733170 You can “Follow” and add the album "Home Time!" by OMAZONE via Spotify: https://open.spotify.com/album/5Eh39LGbTfLYXV4oFAf82u

What a great song! Recorded well, fantastic lyrics and vocals. From the quiet opening with just one acoustic guitar and a clean electric guitar, it gradually builds with vocal overdubs and harmonies until the drums and bass kick in with gusto at the one minute mark. It sounds like there is some really nice reverb drenched slide in there, leading into the chorus. This is a well written, well per...

What a fantastic soulful lead vocal! Great lyrics, the drums really swing -great use of the toms, top harp playing. The organ really ads another dimension and the guitar is something Steve Cropper would be proud of. This is really soulful, booty shakin stuff, it could have been recorded by Stax! Top work guys.
