Hey, blogspot readers, do you enjoy a little blues with your rock that's combined with lyrics sung from the heart? If so, SouthSide highly recommends checking out Josh Hill Band (from Akron, OH) performing tonight at Elbo Room opening for Minus Six and The Tyme Machines.
Though not being able attend this particular show, this reviewer was given access to music by this singer/songwriter and his band in order to give those who are attending the show some sort of idea of what to expect. After listening to songs like Live Until You Die (kind of a morbid title for song but wait until you hear the lyrics and the music) and Forged By Fire (an inspirational song of hope for those who seek it when it gets rough) off the band's self-titled CD, SouthSide can guarantee you're not going to be disappointed by this band's performance tonight.
Expect Josh (front man on guitar) to spotlight heartfelt emotions amidst some sage insight within his songwriting style where the lyrics may offer you sound advice on hope and/or love, blogspot readers. While listening, this reviewer had a distinct feeling Josh was writing from experience too because the words seemed personal and from the heart instead speaking from a third person point of view. The music will have you comparing the trio to The Black Crowes (for that blues/rock) and Jon Mayer (for that alternative) rolled into one unique musical combination. SouthSide enjoyed the energizing feel to Josh Hill's music to which it had a few toe-tapping moments.
