CD Review: New Music From Silverchair's Daniel Johns And America's Got Talent Winner Michael Grimm

Former Silverchair frontman Daniel Johns recently released his debut solo album on May 22nd through Eleven: A Music Company. It has been eight years since his last duties in the spotlight and Johns is looking to make a comeback beginning with his new album, "Talk." The new fifteen-song release begins with the slow R&B style of "Aerial Love," which seems like a departure from his past gig as a rock singer/guitarist. The album's pop tones may not be what fans of Silverchair were expecting, but his decision to take chances is commended with the dance beats of "We Are Golden" and "Too Many." His voice during the epic sounding rock ballad brings life to the song "Preach," while "Dissolve" combines the worlds of dance pop and electronic rock in this modern masterpiece. The build-up of "Sleepwalker" showcases Johns' songwriting, before closing with the the sounds of soul music in "New York" and electronic experimental piece "Good Luck."

Many of you may remember the name Michael Grimm from the successful TV show "America's Got Talent." He was the Season 5 winner back in 2010 and also won a Christian Country Music Association Award for his single "John Wayne and Jesus." Now Michael Grimm is getting ready to release his new album "GRIMM" on June 15 and the lead single "Generation Next," has already hit #1 on the Amazon singles chart. He uses the soulful tone of his voice wisely during the rock 'n' roll backdrop of "Generation Next," while the album's second single "Black & White" has a quieter feel to the ballad as Grimm's vocals easily steal the show. He gets down to the blues on "Roses," before letting his soulful vocals fly on the uptempo country vibe of "High School Stories." You fully appreciate his talents in the slow-rocker "Bliss," before the album closes with the acoustic, country feel of "The Wind." For more on Michael Grimm, visit
