Artist: Simon Scardanelli Album: Hobohemia CD Review:
Simon Scardanelli says a lot with an acoustic guitar and incredibly emotive voice. He uses the guitar very well to support his message full of grit and Scardanelli means every word. You really get the feeling that Scardanelli is on a mission to make us aware of what’s going on around us. He’s got the angry young man thing going on and he definitely requires your attention. I’m sure he grabs your attention at a live show. I’d love to hear him with a band. I like where Scardanelli is coming from, but I get a little weary of the all acoustic guitar cd. I think he’s more than capable of doing something way beyond an acoustic guitar/vocal cd. I visited his website and this guy is into some really cool and interesting stuff. I wish he had combined these songs on “Hobohemia” with some of the soundscapes he’s done for other projects. They are a bit strange, but I think if he edited himself a bit in that area and mixed it up with his songs, he’d have something very unique and cool going on.
