Artist: Chris Van Cott Album: “Little Puppy” CD Review:
Sometimes sounding more like a demo than a fully fleshed out CD sonically, "Little Puppy" is definitely satisfying melodically.
"Honey" is the first track and one of my favorites. It has funny and clever lyrics along wtih a very strong melody that is full of just enough surprises. Most of the other songs are as interestingbut a few feel more like unfinished sketches and not fully realized songs. He uses a variety of approaches in his melodies and tempos and that works really well.
Van Cott is a talented player and singer and his potential is clear. "Little Puppy" is a fine introduction to an artist that I look forward to seeing mature even more as a songwriter.
