CD Review: The Traveling Ones Will "Meet Me There" & Roger Gomez Comes Up "Behind Cloud Nine"

From Austin, TX comes the debut album from the Americana band, The Traveling Ones. Their new release, "Meet Me There" will be available in February 2017 and features nine, feel-good tunes. This new duo are ready to make an impact on the music scene. Beginning with "Wildfire Heart," you begin to compare The Traveling Ones to 10,000 Maniacs as the music floats by the strong vocals of Emily Villareal. They move into a more pop direction with "Your Tonight," which again features the wonderful vocals of Emily along with her singing partner Justin Ahmanson. The quietness of "Red Lights" builds upon this country ballad as it pushes past the six-minute mark. The fun, folk feel of "Baby When It Rains" and the beautiful delivery of "Here In The Light" will place The Traveling Ones as an early contender for best new band of 2017.

From Australia comes the debut album, "Behind Cloud Nine" from pop/rock singer Roger Gomez. He kicks off his new release with the up-tempo pop tones of "Mondays Guide" and the more rocking beats of "She's Always Landing On Her Feet." His keeps the energy flowing with "Slipping Into Suburbia," before showcasing his great songwriting on the up-lifting ballad "Fall Into Grace." He returns to the addictive pop sounds of "Only Lovers Count," before finishing with the punk-like tones of "Tragic Little Girl" and the inspirational, acoustic strumming of the "I Will Call Heaven Home."
