CD Review: Abbotfinney & Jeffrey Alan - What You're Here For
Abbotfinney/Jeffrey Alan - What You're Here For
2008, Freefall Music, LLC
Abbotfinney hail from Seattle, Washington – the capital of grunge. They’ve built a following with their catchy, hook-based acoustic pop/rock that is well deserved. 2008 sees the release of What You’re Here For, and it’s worth a listen.
Building their sound on an acoustic-electric mix, Abbotfinney create incredibly accessible pop-rock songs. Their sound is somewhat reminiscent of Shaw/Blades or The Pat McGhee Band. Led by the distinct voice of Jeffrey Alan, with outstanding harmonies, Abbotfinney hit all of the right notes. Highlights abound, but Change, Isabella Rain and Breakin' My Heart are personal favorites.
Abbotfinney is feel-good music with a sunny disposition. What You're Here For is a tangible musical step in the direction of success. Deep on songwriting and musical talent, Abbotfinney should be making great music for some time to come.
Rating: 4 Stars (Out of 5)
