Shari Rowe Interview by Christian Lamitschka for Country Music News International Magazine 
 

CD: JOEY SONTZ - It All Begins With A Song

JOEY SONTZ
It All Begins With A Song
Just A Little Two Step - I Melt - It All Begins With A Song - What's The Use In Even Trying - Go Uncle John - I Thought Heaven Was A Place - My Picture Of You - Lucky Star - One Breath Away - I'm Lost Empty And Blue
 
Perfect day for record reviewing, and a near perfect record is first on the list.  Joey Sontz is super good singer from Albany, New York, who is working closely with writer Jeff DeBusk whose names appears on six of the ten songs on this CD.  The song "It All Begins With A Song' is the main attraction of this session. Jeff co-writes with several other composers, on this song it's R J Smola.  To be truthful and honest, it's a beautiful song, but traditional country it is not.  However, when we look at Joey Sontz's entertainment life, he has a 3-5 octave range in his voice, and he has performed with the NYC Opera Company while attending classes at the Juilliard School of Music (probably the best in the world) which however isn't the 'start' place for ordinary country music....BUT....Joey Sontz has an incredibly beautiful voice.  And, like the song (like life) it begins with a song.  This gifted entertainer is following the road that the entertainment world is taking him on.  I really liked the opening song best, "Just A Little Two Step" is typical western-swing, and very well done.  Joe's mother was a singer in the big-band era, and I can hear that rubbing off on this young man a little.  We don't know who the backing musicians are, but the steel is nicely pronounced on both "Go Uncle John" and "I Thought Heaven Was A Place," a nicely done slow, very sweet, song written by Jeff DeBusk by himself.  Joey is doing 'country' music as a chart-stopper this could be in 'today's' country music world, however not so much in the world of Hank Williams, Merle Haggard, and Bill Monroe, still the 'teachers' of what country music is all about.  I'd really like to hear Joey do some of those older 'etched in stone' songs from any of those great teachers.  Keep in mind too, Joey Sontz has had an acting career, appearing in more than 100 films and television shows. Joey knows the road to success in country isn't easy, but he also knows he wants to 'share' his gift with as many as he can. So Joey, try to be a little more 'country' than what country music is today.  You could very well be the singular artist that brings country music BACK to what country music has been through the years.  Good job well done Joey, give it a try you have a great voice.

CD: PHYLLIS HUMMEL - The Music I Love

PHYLLIS HUMMEL
The Music I Love
Church In The Wildwood - Sugartime - Masters Bouquet - Talk Back Trembling Lips - The Wayward Woman - Thank You For The Roses - When A Child Is Hurting - Golden Rings - As Soon As I Hang Up The Phone - Till A Tear Becomes A Rose - We'll Stick Together - She's No Angel - You'll Be Kissing Me - Making Believe - The Pain Of Loving You - Searching - When A Tingle  Becomes A Chill - Backstreet Affair - Dasher With The Light Upon His Tail - Dear Uncle Sam
 
Right off the bat I hear an autoharp on the first song.  I'm ready to hear some nice traditional country music, and sure enough, Phyllis Hummel delivers.  On the cover of this CD Phyllis has placed some of the albums by country artists that she has listened to and loves.  The first one I noticed was Merle Haggard.  With the loss of this incredibly gifted true country artist recently, we have lost some of the 'soul' that has made traditional and classic country music so popular and so vitally important to rural folks.  You know those people who still live on farms, they still maintain strong morals, they live in what has always been, and will continue to be, the 'country.'  The second album I noticed on Phyllis' cover, was by Sherwin Linton who is without a doubt the most popular 'real' country artist in our upper Midwest, especially among the rural folks, you know, the ones who live in the 'country.'  Phyllis Hummel is right on track. She picked songs for this CD that are also some of the most popular country songs the rural folks like.  Many kudos to her producer, Martin Vigesaa who also plays numerous instruments on the session: upright bass, pedal steel, acoustic & electric guitar, banjo, piano, mandolin, fiddle, Dobro, autoharp, drums, and electric bass.  WOW.... perfect instrumentation for a CD of this kind, and he does all of it well.  Of course this requires a lot of over-dubbing and over-tracking, but Martin does it extremely well.  Be that as it may, the entire CD is just filled with some great traditional country songs, all of them very well done by Phyllis.  I 'hear' the harmony singers joining her, much like it was done in the past.  I hear that great old-time 'rural' sound that is so missing in today's world of make believe country music.  Phyllis makes her home in Minnesota, and has been a part of the South Dakota Country Music Association, and we wish her much continued success with her music.  There's a whole big bunch of terrific traditional country music on this CD.  For that reason I will be sending it along to the Rural Roots Music Commission for their listen.
