More great Ponzek music

As a longtime fan of Tim Ponzek's work, I have had the chance to see the artist grow in both creativity and strength, both as a composer and performer. Beautiful Rain has the Ponzek thumbprint of lyrics that can inspire, amuse, and remind us of bittersweet pain, and like a Hitchcock film, sometimes all at once.

The homage to classic country style is presented in a way both fresh and true to its roots. Like the 20th century Russian composers, he didn't throw out the baby with the bathwater in giving us new music in a variety of the best country genres.

As well as the top-notch writing, instrumental work, and production, his voice bears specific mention. It is growing stronger with each CD, and the upper register is climbing, which is unusual as an artist matures. This "new" instrument has brought real power to underscore the text.

While mentioning vocals, a tip of the hat to what I think of as the "Lisa choir", background vocals by Lisa Pressman, a superb artist in her own right, and with many great CDs to prove it.

To me, the true benchmark of any work of art is longevity. After multiple listenings, I know that Beautiful Rain is a keeper, and I am looking forward to hear where the next offering takes us.
